I’ve returned! After a few hectic weeks of trekking around former Yugoslavia and attending a pretty awesome conference, I’ve returned to share with you all the first part of a two (or maybe three, I haven’t decided yet) part series of images I captured while away. We start this week in Slovenia, with its capital, Ljubljana, an unexpectedly beautiful city even when it's gray and dreary and there is a foot of snow on the ground. I also stopped by the amazing Skocjan Caves on my way to Croatia. Flip through the images below to see the rest of the Slovenia pics.
