Our choir, Cantemus, went on a three-day tour to Vienna to give a couple of concerts. We had some free time to see the city in Christmas spirit. I had been here before a few times, but it's always an experience. One of my favorite European capitals for sure.
A friend threw a birthday party in a mountain hut on the Velika planina mountain. It had snowed a day or two before the weekend and the wind created some intriguing shapes of ice on everything. When we got there, the mountain was shrouded in fog. It was a beautiful sight. The following day was a total opposite - gloriously sunny in the mountains and a sea of fog in the valley.
Sečovlje salt pans are located near Portorož on the Slovenian coast. They used to be the biggest natural resource of salt in the area. Today this is a natural reserve and a tourist attraction. I didn't have much time here, and one hour is not enough to see and explore everything.
It was a warm September weekend, and my friend Nataša and I decided to go on a two-day hike in the Julian Alps. Our goal was Mt. Triglav, the highest Slovenian mountain at 2.864 meters above sea level. It was a beautiful hike, but too crowded if you ask me.
