Ljubljana, Slovenia in Winter

The first weekend of February was a long weekend and one of the better ones in memory.  It was the kind of weekend that warms you up from the inside, even when it is -11 degrees celsius outside.  The kind of weekend for starry eyes, beating hearts and sweaty palms.  It was fabulous.  

It was spent in the teeny Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, after a spectacular and picturesque train ride through the Alps.  The snow flurried around our heads and then the sun came out to make it all glitter.  The city itself is quite small, but beautiful, with great cafes and trendy spots.  (Alkaline water, I am looking at you!)  To be honest, though, I didn't notice much of it.  I was too busy with my starry eyes and sweaty palms ;)
