There are a plenty of good reasons to examine the ground beneath your feet in Slovenia. Looking down keeps you entertained and, most importantly, it provides you with information that is essential for safe travel…
…and for your survival through clues on where to find water and food.
If you’re lucky, you can even find some actual food.
Water is everywhere…
…and so is nature.
As for the animals, there are sea stars,…
…cats, that are eager to make friends with you…
…and more cats that are too busy on their way to secret missions to care.
You can also admire the beauty made by man.
Some of the artworks are even bearing the signature (and basic data information) of the artist.
You can read poetry…
…or challenge your ability of deciphering secret codes.
Discover the signs of love…
…and of recent or long gone underground civilisations.
And last but not least, there are always the cobblestones!

1. Other people’s cars.
2. Random fireworks I saw from the balcony the other day.
3. My ladybird earrings. They aren’t new, but I find myself wearing them every day lately.
4. Sea salt chocolate made in Piran.
5. Books from an English bookstore in Ljubljana. I’ve already finished the two Mma Ramotswe stories but haven’t started The Cuckoo’s Calling yet.
6. Speaking of books: new bookshelves. This is a never-ending battle between me and my books in which I’m still on the losing side.
7. Mini bottles of nail polish, bought in Maribor. I’ve never really gotten behind the ways nail polish rules the emotional life of women but Hungarian Health Care System is a weird, cruel place and I – being emotionally not exactly the toughest lately – need every bit of glittery distraction I can get to survive it.
8. That my time in Hungarian Health Care System is almost over. Only eleven more exams to go and I’m free to choose my own path again.

When if, around the end of October, I will drop a casual remark about having failed the state exams both in critical care nursing and anaesthesiology, you will all know why did it happen.
There is definitely such thing as too much Simenon.
