A Very Bavarian Weekend. I

Unlike in previous years, we had given no consideration to an end-of-school-year holiday this time around because we and our passports are a little travel weary at the moment. But then Anna Grace asked if we could take the end-of-school long weekend to enjoy Zugspitze and to see Schloss Neuschwanstein again.

Idyllic Adriatic, Finale. Slovenia’s Seashore

The Republic of Slovenia was the first to close their borders and declare independence from Yugoslavia. After 10 days of fighting, Slovenia became its own country in 1991. Now you know.  Nearly the size of the U.S. state New Jersey, Slovenia’s riviera is the smallest of the former Yugoslav states at just 46,6 km. Now you know that, as well.
