August 2020

This post is for my Calendar 2020 in the making for which I choose twenty photos taken in the same month one year ago.

As you are reading this, my uncle, bestia and I are on the way to Tuscany, beating post-holiday traffic, road works, heat, storms (I hope not!), and the like.

Just two more weeks and Crystal and Pedro are coming from Oregon, yeah! And then we will do the same trip, just in the opposite direction, so that they will be able to visit both my countries.

Here are memories from last August in the shape of twenty hard-pressed favourites, meaning that I first had a selection of 90 photos and then had to make the final cut with a heavy heart.

The subjects go from uncle’s garden and two architectural wonders in Ljubljana towards Kranjska Gora and the Julian Alps where we spent four wonderful days courtesy of the State of Slovenia and its Covid-19 coupons for every adult citizen. This year there is another coupon worth 100 Eur. (Last year it was 300 Eur but it was only valid for overnight accommodation. This year it covers restaurants and culture too.)

With the last five photos we come back to Italy. Flavia and I had a memorable getaway to Sutri, Lake Vico and Lake Bracciano, and these are just a few wonders from that day.

Welcome to revisit my previous August with me and who knows, one day we may stroll together for real.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

      1. Oh my, when I think of Italy and Tuscany the words you’ve used to describe your return isn’t at all what comes to my mind!! 😂

        Well, it’s hot, parched, and smoky as hell here! I’m hoping the wind clears out some smoke so I can at least walk up to the gate today.

        I’m am glad you’re home safely! 🥰
