North-East.

A weekend out of Ljubljana. We went to visit Iggy's parents and we took opportunity for some actual outdoor life. LOL We did about 9 km long walk through some old villages in Prlekija, a region in North-East Slovenia. It used to be one of the poorest parts of the country and you can still see some evidences of that. But what I really really liked are old wooden cottages and houses, which date probably way more than 100 years in the past. At times it really felt like a jump in the past. Oh, and that flattering afternoon light... I am offering you a few pictures here, there rest you can see in a flickr set.

I really like the images taken by the lake. I like lakes...

Oh, and do I spy grapes? Is this perhaps one of the Slovenian wine regions? I am keeping an eye out for Slovenian wine in my local wine shops.
Definitely planning on giving some a try as I've heard they're quite good...

Yup, it's one of the regions, known for rather sweet white wines, which are not my favourite, but if I find myself properly stimulated..........

Are there Hungarian influences there (language, people, customs)?

In this region not too many, but if you go a bit further up North (like 20 km) you can sense some. :)

And the leaves will change all too soon..........

I guess in a couple of weeks, when first frost comes.

Lovely light, soft muted-yet-vibrant colors. It looks so peaceful. I'm sure most people who live there work hard, but what a beautiful place to live!

Yes, they still work hard, but...... I guess I am a more urban creature. :)
