As I sat in a short bus ride, passing through the meadows, Slovenia gracefully entered the verdant frame. I said goodbye to Barbara and Ana today.

Old town in Dubrovnik, Croatia
18th May 2015 – Dubrovnik, Croatia Time is a luxury right now, but an even more Indulgent one I found, in my own passport. Well, lets not even talk about the money. Thats secondary.
