sLOVEnia – Varpolje

Green, mountains, rivers, outdoor and adventure are words that to me describe Slovenia best. After a drive that took 3 (!) days in the end, we arrived at our first campsite in Varpolje. It was really warm and we were really lazy. More than we liked really, but I guess we needed it…

However:

We laughed.
We swam.
We did our laundry.
We walked to the bakery for delicious fresh bread every morning. With a stunning view.
We were a little more lazy.
We foraged the river Savinja. A lot. Mostly for pretty, grlue stones and rusty things.
We played games.
We drank tea. A lot. And devoured soup. A lot too. With that heat.
We were lazy again.
We ate marshmallows at sticks we found in the forest first.
But also walked up the mountain. After first using the cable car and chairlift :-)
We visited the pretty city Maribor on a rainy day and loved it.
We used it as a playground and had humongous ice creams.
We lit a candle for someone very special. And we saw churches through the eyes of our children. So fresh.
Then we drove to Italy for a dip in the sea. To later continue to our new destination…

 

Boys, boys, boys – October 2016

With lots of family time in the broadest sence of the word, October was a good month. Usually I write about what we did. For this particular month I won’t as it feels inferior to what these months photo’s reflect. Namely, our true boys. Who they both really are. In this current phase of their life. So I hope, when I read and especially see this post back later, it brings me back to this particular time and place.
