Bled and Bohinj

Everyone in Ljubljana has been telling me to visit Bled and Bohinj and I finally had the chance to go! I woke up early in order to have sufficient time to explore, but things never really go as planned for me. Blindly trusting google maps, I ended up at the wrong bus station, walking aroundContinue reading “Bled and Bohinj”

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 hadContinue reading “Abandoned Buildings Wherever I Go”

Dancing and Desserts

First week of classes is in the books. My first class was Critical Theory of Culture and the professor dived right into his four hour lecture on human consciousness, Hegelian dialectics, commodity fetishism, phenomenology of the mind, and all sorts of other fun convoluted theories. Pretty intense way to start my semester, I’m going toContinue reading “Dancing and Desserts”

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,Continue reading “Settling into Studies”

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. I was ecstatic to go along because I love Narnia and read all the books as a child. So after having some rough times in Slovenia thus far,Continue reading “Finding Narnia… Or Maybe Some New Friends”

Ups and Downs in Ljubljana

Today I woke up super early to find an atm for the 300 euro cash deposit I needed to make for my dormitory. Then, the lady who owned the AirBnb I was staying in, drove me to the dorm office. Arriving at the dorm office was a bit intimidating as there was a huge lineContinue reading “Ups and Downs in Ljubljana”

Sunday Stressing

I woke up super late today, turns out my body is not yet acclimated to the time zone. Today is Sunday which means that everything is closed in Ljubljana. Luckily, I took some time today to stress out about moving into the dorms tomorrow. I’ve met a couple of people who are familiar with theContinue reading “Sunday Stressing”

Exploring Ljubljana

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 aroundContinue 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 hadContinue reading “Airports on Airports on Airports”

Leaving to Ljubljana!

                          Only two days until I leave for my study abroad trip in Ljubljana, Slovenia! For those of you who have no idea where Slovenia is(I wouldn’t know if I weren’t about to live there for 6 months), it is a very small countryContinue reading “Leaving to Ljubljana!”
