Look who is here!

Franco london1967  and Adrian london1952  finally made it to Ljubljana. The city was happy to welcome them and so were the skies, well at least for the part we were able to spend some time with them. I really, really wish we had more time, but with all the work and translating and packing we weren't really the hosts we'd like to be. We did all we could, though. But... I can only hope Effe and Adrian are (still) enjoying their time in Slovenia. We walked around the city a bit yesterday and we dragged them "in the heart of nowhere" as Franco said for some odd, authentic Slovene food. They survived. Mostly unharmed, I hope. And today was another one of those must see stops in Slovenia, lakes Bohinj and Bled and its famous cream cake. Spring is in its full bloom here, so I guess they've picked the best time to visit.

Franco's first impression of Ljubljana is HERE, and an oddly titled post is HERE.

Yes, if only we had more time. *sigh* So, here are a few pictures and the second I post that, I am off packing again. Tomorrow I'll be in a totally different place. And I am *so* happy because of it all. I'll keep you posted, of course. :)

Bodies of water, part one. Ljubljana.


Not another one!!! :)


But he was taking pictures all the time.


Lake Bohinj.


Sky in Adrian's eyes...


Some Spring with Iggy as a background.

Adrian hiding from Franco's camera reminds me of Igor hiding from your camera. LOL

So they had to go to Slovenia for me to see a photo of just the two of them? :)

Wow, are those cherry plum flowers? The cherry plum trees in my neighbourhood have tiny green fruit already, and I pick and eat a couple of them as I walk each time. I don't know if those trees have any owners (some are rather far from the buildings, could be even self-sown), but the temptation is so strong. LOL, background Iggy!

Love the water-body photos.

Have a safe trip, darling, and have fun in France! :)

LOL I don't normally confuse their names. Was I too sleepy or what? 1:32 AM was still comparatively early for me. :P

Ah the gallery of Slavic beauties in their spring regalia... it makes the heart ache with longing...

That village church was spectacular, and the twilight photos ravishing. As for the dinner, I'll just say that I'm glad to read that all of YOU enjoyed it.

Beautiful pictures, but especially the lake. That is so gorgeous. I would love to just be sitting by it right now.

The lake is amazing. One of my favourite year-round spots. Just calms me down....

The Lake view is beautiful!!

Is it close to the city??

Everything in Slovenia is close to the city..... the lake is an hour and a half away. :)

The lakes are stunning... and Franco and Adrian are both adorable! I also love the reflets dans l'eau in Ljubljana picture, and the snap of "some Spring" with Iggy's silhouette in the far distance... beautiful.

Your eyes continue to astound me.

omg, I love that BOdy of Water, part 1 pix! Frameable. Part 2
s not bad either. I trust your understanding and command in depth of field in the tree pix. It's your signature, evident in your archives.

Q: Is the water in that lake shallow? Is he standing in the water or on steps?

Happy holiday in Marseilles! I'll catch up asap.

HUG!

Yes, DOF was totally intentional. :)

Water in the lake is up to 50 m deep. And Adrian was standing on steps.
