Each time I’m back I play this odd mind game I used to play when I was living in Slovenia: I watch myself from the outside doing the grocery at the historical Ljubljana’s farm market on Pogačarjev Trg, reading a book at the open-air libraries, having a coffee on the Ljubljanica banks or dancing the night out at Metelkova Mesto.
The best way to explore Ljubljana on and off the beaten track is by renting a bike and going around.
The whole point of this short trip to Ljubljana I just had was a reunion with two of my former housemates from my EVS time in Slovenske Konjice (Eastern Slovenia), two girls I kept being in touch during the following years and with whom -back then- I instantly had a special bound based on our common passion for food –hence our trio nickname “trije prašički” (the three little pigs, as those from the fairy tale). And so, as you can easily guess, our trije prašički’s reunion in Ljubljana revolved mostly around food :-)
|Ljubljana, Slovenia | Food|
First of all, I must confess that in Ljubljana we were so lucky to have the best food guide on the planet: my Macedonian friend Elena, who is living in Slovenia since 2008, when we both arrived on the same day in the glorious EVS house in Slovenske Konjice (western Slovenia). We are close friends now, but I would say our friendship arose from our shared passion for cooking and eating (and also from travelling Slovenia far and wide to try new restaurants!). Thus she obviously had complete authority to decide where we were going to eat during our stay: 3 dinners to surprise us! :-)
