Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking

Here are some views of my city of birth Ljubljana, which I am about to show to my special visitors from far away, with the special emphasis on the mountains to show Crystal that we have some too and to give her ideas where all she could be walking.

I’d love to, keep walking, but it hurts. It is hard to adjust to the fact that my hiking days are over but my busted feet point in that direction.

Here in Tuscany mountains are what my eye misses the most. In Ljubljana, Slovenia, I grew up with the view that you can see in today’s photos and that I admired again earlier this month. It depends on the day: on some days they are only hinted at and on some others they give the full show. These are somewhere in between.

Crystal and Pedro were just hiking her mountains for about a week and then she did a walk relay race too. Now they are coming over. Crystal, meet Kamnik-Savinja Alps. Kamnik is a town and Savinja is a river. You can cross them and visit both and this is what I did with father and sister when we were hiking from Maribor to Kamnik for a week, by far the craziest endeavour of my life. This time there won’t be time for these too but they will wait for you to return.

  1. Ljubljana really does have a gorgeous setting! I hope to get back someday … that seemed easy enough to imagine before but now, who knows when or if? Happy to see your views vicariously for now. (Sorry to hear your feet will not allow for more walking. 😦 )

  2. I had to pop over to see where Crystal and Pedro are going and who they are going to visit. She is an absolutely adorable person and wonderful friend that I don’t see often enough. I’m excited they get to come visit with you and share that trip with us back home. Your photos are stunning! I do understand the broken feet. I couldn’t do a hike even if it was through a shopping district. 🙂 I’ll pop back again first chance I get.

    1. Thank you kindly, Marlene, for having a look and deciding to stick around. I love Crystal’s way of coming over as soon as possible, she is a true woman of action. You have lovely words for her too. I know that I’ll have to use my feet to keep up with her. I hope they cooperate. Always welcome back.

    1. Thank you, Tina. Well, for the last eight years I am only in Slovenia for the summer and there I can see them from afar. The Alps are in the north of the country but are visible even from the coast on a clear day. Here in Tuscany the highest peak I can see is Monte Amiata, an old volcano at 5,702 ft but it’s really far.

  3. Absolutely beautiful, with and without the clouds. You are so lucky to be able to live in two such beautiful places. They are scenic and storybook like. Thank you for walking us through today. I am sorry about your feet. Donna

    1. Oh, Donna, I know! I am extremely lucky, also because both of my countries are so varied and interesting and beautiful everywhere you look with changes in small distances. My feet did surprisingly well this week. We walked plenty and climbed things with relative ease with my visitors. I was really happy.

      1. You are lucky, as we are since you show us the differences. Not everyone would have the same appreciation you do. I find that in our beautiful state as well.

        I am like you. I love everything about where I am at the moment.

  4. The mountain scenery is simply spectacular. Sorry to hear that your foot issues are not going away.
    I’m lucky that the shoe inserts the doc prescribed solved the problem for me.
    The picture of you 3 from 2015 is smile-inducing and you tell Marco he looks pretty spiffy in a jacket and tie 🙂

    1. Thank you, Norm! I was travelling around my two countries with our visitors for a week but I did catch this comment and transferred it to amore. He grinned in a way that made me think he didn’t wish any more weddings, hahah. My feet did remarkable well, considering. We had the loveliest time. Hope you two are wonderful too.
