I’m currently in the capital of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Even the name is difficult to spell! While cities such as Bratislava have been depicted as nightmares in movies as Hostel and Eurotrip, Ljubljana is so far of the mental map that it is never even getting mentioned at all in western popular culture.
Visions of Singapore
"By extensive use of landfill with sand bought from Indonesia and Cambodia, the bay area has expanded greatly in the last few years and tall buildings pop up everywhere."
Sessions in Seville
"I end my journey in front of the tomb of Columbus, located inside the world’s largest Gothic cathedral."
Eating my way through Basque country
"Not too bad to wash it all down with a local Txakoli, the young white wine typical of the Basque country."
The dark days of Sarajevo
"The city survived on the edge of annihilation and has started to recover, but the stone walls still seem to cry out in lament of all the horrible things they have seen."
Memories of Skye
"The countryside is charming and some places even have coffee."
I still love you, New York
"Now I’m back and our roles are somewhat reversed. Like River Song and the Doctor, we meet again under different circumstances."
