Oh yes, it comes to those who wait: holidays! Here are some relaxing times from last July for my . Calendar 2017
, where Amy asks us for photos of how we or somebody else relaxed. Last July I was right here in Slovenia as well, only the first photo was taken in my favourite Roman garden. this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge
Some music while you’re looking: since domaaaani amore is travelling from Italy to do just that – relax, here is Lucio Dalla and his timeless Futura. Because this is how we’ll call it, if it’s female. And because without love even the sun is just an iron chain. ❤
This is how a month can be spent if you’re lucky.
Time to lie naked and sniff feet? Hm… not really.
Time for an espresso and ice-t in a hipster pickle jar in Maribor.
Time for father to revisit the place where he used to go for cakes after school. (Ilich, Maribor)
July: Time and place to lie down. It looks softer than it is. Forma Viva, Portorož, Slovenia.
For a photographer, there is no time to relax: Sečovlje salt-pans.
The view is relaxing already, imagine to be on one: St. Bartholomew Channel, Seča.
Time to chill and eat well: Piran’s little green market.
Time to control the situation from above.
Time to relax before partying. A friend at sister’s 40th birthday party.
Time to play a game by the lake. Codenames: Pictures.
Time to swim in the lake if you’re this mother and son (my elephant-collecting friend). Lake Mengeš.
Time to shape up your zen. I love it how amore wears the towel. Clearly a frood.
Time for a lovely lunch by the river. Tourist farm Magovac, Krka.
Not necessarily the same time: Moscow, Sarajevo and Istanbul are in different time zones. Taken in Das ist Valter, Kranj, Slovenia, where the middle time applies.
July: Time to waddle and wag. From the Kranj bridge, Slovenia.
Time for this Roman to feel the existential dread of being surrounded by tall mountains. But there was food. Julian Alps.
Lake Bohinj with the cable car to the top of Vogel from where they ski in the winter.
Time to visit Bled. Castle above the lake and the church on the only Slovenian island. Which is in the lake. Bled Mayor famously and unfortunately advised Slovenians against contributing to crowds by keeping away in the summer. Really, Mr. Mayor. So I went twice.
Back to Piran: Time for mom to do her walking and swimming rounds.
Time for the sea greens and blues.
Time for Bestia to chill and enjoy his extended pack while it lasts.
And finally, always, any time, time for gelato. (Piran sunset)
