Slovenia. An amazing place
Occasionally one travels to a country and finds immediately it takes your soul. This is Slovenia. The people are pleasant, helpful and vibrant. They smile and do not complain. The mountains with snow on top look beautiful. The city is a place to walk and look, eat ice cream at cafes ( hazelnut and raspberry are recommended) and drink coffee. The bard look enticing and the prices most definitely not european. This is a good place to come to. The contrast cannot be more stark. Heathrow airport is a vile place, full of heaving, pushing people, expensive drinks and little to do or see. There is no customer satisfaction. These views were not made better by arriving back at Terminal 1 friday evening around 11pm to find that security staff for BAA had kindly locked one of the corridors stopping any passenger either to get to or from their gate. Thanks. And of course gone home. I only had 2 days in Slovenia and the lectures I gave were recieved with interest and politeness, and humour. A quick trip to Lake Bled allowed me to see the castle perched on a cliff. Whoever you are, you should go there.
