Slovenia probably doesn’t feature in anyone’s list of their top 5 places to visit in Europe but I have to say that the country was exceptionally good to me. For one week, I either got myself a Börek or a falafel for about €2, endlessly walked those cobbled streets of Ljubljana, crossing the pink church or the canal in that wonderful autumn chill and life just seemed dandy.
Journeying across and beyond the mountains and otherworldly sights we were privy to, Ladakh was an enchantment but at the heart of it, friendship and companionship became just as important as the wonders we saw and the incidences we encounters during the traveling itself.
Meandering through those terribly dusty Tuensang roads with scenes that brought upon a feeling of melancholia, we didn't just learn about the culture. We understood it to some measure. It was a week that instilled a purpose for us and as I write this today, I can say that it has been a driving force especially in terms of the choices we have made, work wise.
