Hello my friends-to-be!
So, here we are. In Slovenia, a tiny but beautiful country.
There are only 2 mil people living in this small area, but you would be surprised to see what we have to offer. We are a modern and developed country, with plenty of tourist attractions to show off with :)
Our language is Slovenian and its specific is a dual form. It is one of the rare languages where already the verb tells you that two
people love each other. Romantic indeed :)
Our greatest poet is France Prešeren (19th cent.), and for all poetry lovers, here comes some:
A Farewell to My Youth
O happier half of days decreed to me,
My early years, so soon you passed away:
Few were the flowers that blossomed on that tree,
And they, scarce budded, fell into decay.
Few were the rays of hope that I could see,
And storms would often rage in wild array;
Still, for my youth, dark though thy dawn may be,
My heart will ever cry, God be with thee!
I've been moving my home a bit around the country in the last years, so I feel frustrated having to choose my "hometown". Anyway, at the moment I am really fond of the capital - so, here it is, lovely in its winter clothing... Ljubljana!
Let that be all for today. I must admit I feel tired after my first blogging experience! :) But I enjoyed it very much. It's a good start, the start of something bigger. I know it is.
Hugs all around the world
