Hi from Slovenia

Hello everybody!
I'm verry glad to find you guys and I hope that I can contribute a small piece in this huge knowlege base. I'm owner of 11m sailboat, Bavaria 36, located in Croatia. I sail from my early years (small boats, windsurf, sailng yacht) mostly in Adriatic sea (Mediteran).
I'm not native english writer/speaker, so I hope that we will understand each other.
Regards,
Marchi

Re: Hi from Slovenia

Hi Marchi,

Your post title says Slovenia... Are you originally from there? My husband and I visited Lake Bled and Postoyna a few weeks ago. What a hidden gem! The Julian Alps, countryside and caves were phenomenal, the roads were well-maintained, food was amazing (and very inexpensive), and the internet was faster than here in Italy. If the language wasn't so hard for us, I think we'd be tempted to stay forever. You also said your boat is in Croatia? Martreeve is a new member who posted a few days ago looking for information on safe places to dock in Croatia and the Greek Isles. Do you have any information that might be helpful? I've only been to Croatia (Split) by plane, so I wasn't much help.

Re: Hi from Slovenia

Dear Sarah!
Thanks for your nice words about our small place on earth called Slovenia. You have to see more, so you and your husband are verry welcome to come to Ljubljana.

Do you have boat also? Where?

I will see if I can help with some info to Martreeve.

Regards!
Marchi (Marko)

Re: Hi from Slovenia

No boat yet, but we hope to have a sailboat by January of next year. We're moving back to the States in August, so right now, we're just kind of looking online at different models and learning as much about sailboats as possible so we can make as wise of a decision as possible. We'll be able to get some training in sailing when we're back Stateside, as well.

Here in Napoli, we are always battling pollution and trash strikes, burning piles of trash, trash scattered all over the roads and grass, trash in all the waters... we have a bit of a trash problem here and sometimes I can't even run outside without my eyes watering from the smell. The other thing I enjoyed about Slovenia was how fresh the air is and you can do so many outdoor activities. Maybe it's worth learning Slovene after all. Too bad my job doesn't have a position available there. A lot of my friends I work with have been to Slovenia as well. We refer to her as the hidden gem of Europe. (So anyone reading this post, if you haven't guessed from my gushing about it, you should visit Slovenia if you ever get the chance! It is soooo worth it.)
