Abandoned Buildings Wherever I Go

At home, I love visiting abandoned places and it never crossed my mind that I would find one here in Ljubljana. Originally, I planned on going to the center of the town and attempting to find a bridesmaid dress for my sister’s wedding but my day turned out completely different. As soon as I had gotten to the bus stop, I received a message from the girl who lives in the room next to mine asking me if I wanted to go on a walk with her. She is from Lithuania and seemed amazingly nice so of course I said … Continue reading Abandoned Buildings Wherever I Go

Settling into Studies

The past couple days have been very busy with getting ready for classes, filling out paperwork, getting a bus pass, signing up for student meals and other not very fun things. For quite a while, being in Ljubljana has felt somewhat dream-like, that any day I will wake up back in Kansas city. More recently, as I prepare for lectures, it’s becoming reality that I will be living here for five months. This will hopefully become a home away from home.

Finding Narnia… Or Maybe Some New Friends

My newly found friend and her friends let me join along on their trip to Soča Valley where Prince Caspian from The Chronicles of Narnia was filmed.

On the drive to the valley, four girls, all from different countries enjoyed listening to music and singing along. It was fantastic and eye opening. The truth is, even though all of us are from different backgrounds and … Continue reading Finding Narnia… Or Maybe Some New Friends

Headache central this morning when I woke up. Most likely from all the changes in my sleeping schedule. Jet Lag. Is. Real. Nothing stopped me from exploring the city today, not a headache that’s for sure. First adventure of the day was to see the Ljubljana castle. You can see this castle from all around the city and I knew I needed to see it for myself. Man, walking up that hill to the castle killed me. I was dead by the time I got up to the castle but too amazed by how cool it was that I kept … Continue reading Exploring Ljubljana

Airports on Airports on Airports

Today is the day! Today is the day that is so long it stretches into the following day. Woke up late, car got stuck in the frozen driveway, left things behind(not my anxiety), fought with automated credit card menus, and also just all the stuff that comes with going to the airport. Luckily, I had my mom, sister, and nephew to drop me off and ease some of the stress. Bye family, I will miss seeing all your beautiful faces everyday! The first flight was decent, however the lady behind me shut her window just as I had my camera … Continue reading Airports on Airports on Airports
