Just an F-Blog #42. 12 June 2010.

One of the hottest days in 2010, so staying low and inside was the thing to do and it wasn't till 9pm when Iggy and me decided that we need a drink with my brother Robert and it needed to be down by the river. So, from the village to the city with the car and then a short walk to the old heart of the city. Join me on this tiny journey. But before we set off...

Happy Birthday, Curtis cecilgene ! :)



A dedicated march to get to that darned river. Like... 5 minutes away?


Pretty popular in warmer time of the year.


Ever present castle.


Passing by some old streets...


Robert and Iggy, Cobbler's Bridge.


Street performance; the noble kind.


Lovely place to enjoy an Aperol Spritz, isn't it? :)


Going home. Some serious stone.


Street performance; the relaxed kind.

It looks gorgeous, and the pics are beautiful -- and I don't even know what an "Aperol Spritz" is (but I assume it is some kind of perverted Slovene sex practice).

Thanks, S! Glad you appreciate it.

Well, Aperol Spritz is..... well, I am not going to destroy the charm. LOL

Looks just perfect...and I was also wondering if 'Aperol Spritz' was something you did with your clothes off!

Well..... I guess the same goes for you as well. :) Let's keep it interesting... until someone decides to Google it all up. :)

And thanks! ;)))))

But am I really naked all the time? LOL

Thank you for the tour, dearest! I remember that "serious stone" from my fisrt evening with you and Iggy last year. And yes, I need to visit Ljubljana again.

Never seen a street performance of the "noble kind" like that.

Most welcome. Ljubljana can be pretty.

There is a big open are stage on the central, Preseren Square and it's very much alive through the whole summer. Now it's "5 nights of ballet" week. :)

That was an excellent photo series Tomaz; I do believe that you're the most talented photographer on my LJ. I really love you chose to shoot; I was taken by the "noble" street performance. The river and the buildings are just so beautiful. I assumed that Aperol Spritz was a drink of some sort.

Oh, thanks, Billy! That's very kind of you. :))))))))

Noble street performance is part of summer open air festival, there are stages all around the city and they are trying hard to keep the old city alive. And doing a good job with it.

Yes, Aperol Spritz is a liquor/sparkling wine/mineral water/orange thing. Italians know how to enjoy their life. And we're learning, we're learning...

That is all.

Q/A
Is there is a river or lake vve can skinny-dip in? Are there nude beaches? Slovenia doesn't look completely land-locked on the map. There's a tiny section that's seaside. Right? Talk about that.

The ballet looks great! VVould I get arrested if I vvant to flirt vvith the dancers? Cuz I think I vvould like that...

Very nice, baby!


... I vvant to rib but I vvon't. :-.D

There are rivers and lakes and some sea. There are nude beaches. You could flirt and not get arrested. I think. :)

Don't. :)
