WPC: Ljubljana – a bowl of cherries

Mmmm, I love my cherries. Left, right, top, bottom, in between.

I love them so much that while not the only one, they are my favourite fruit. I love them so much that Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson is my favourite book, but not just because of the title. I love them so much that I want to have them all the time, not just on top.

The last time I was strolling around my birthtown, Ljubljana, photo cherries were coming left and right so fast that I was struggling to catch them all. I’ve done at least three photo-heavy posts already from this walk and at least three are still in the works.

During the walk through the centre of the city where I lived all my life up to three years ago I didn’t meet a single familiar face for the longest time, even though the streets were packed. In Slovenia, with her zero degrees of separation.

When I finally did, it was a girl from my high school class. I told her how glad I was to meet her because by the look of it I could easily be in Antwerp. Or Brugge. Helsinki. Switzerland. New York. Somewhere with plenty of people whom I don’t know.

When we continued our stroll, I was pretty sure that I had just talked to her in English. I couldn’t tell for sure.

And yet some of the cherries could only have grown where I did. They put me in the place and back to the time when everything was completely different. Let’s see which one was the ultimate cherry.

  4. So you are a Slovenian? I’m going to visit your country in a few days time. Yet I will not go to the best touristic places but to more rural part, south of Maribor – Gorenje pri Zrecah.

    1. Yep, that I am, and I’m going there in a few days as well, just to the other side of the country. 🙂 You found such a place to visit that I had to google it and I still don’t know much about it. Brave! 😉 Kidding aside – I might have never been to this town but my father is from around those parts. The entire Slovenia is beautiful, with a possible exception of Jesenice. Dobrodošla! Which is welcome. If you reach Ljubljana, tell me.

      1. Thanks for the invitation, but most probably not this time. We only have a plan to go for one day to Bled lake and Vintgar gorge. Hopefully there will be also other trips in the future to your – I know that – beautiful country 🙂
