We are finally stateside again after our seven weeks in Ljubljana. And, despite a 4am wake-up call and layovers in Paris and Reykjavik, we made it back in one piece (although sans one suitcase, which is getting delivered later this evening). A key component of this was entertainment that kept the whole family glued to the screen (see below).
Our final weekend consisted of a few of our staples: sandwiches down by the river for lunch, pizza at restaurant Trta for dinner, and (what else?) a few ice cream cones. We also managed to squeeze in a date night with a home-cooked fish dinner. We did not, however, go to the playground because we were too ecstatic about making it all the way through our trip with no E/R visits.
We had a great mix of new and old experiences this time around. What was fun to watch was how much the kiddos (especially Rosetta) remembered from last year. It was really fun (or “Super!”, as they say in Slovenia) being in our old apartment the final two weeks. That brought back so many memories, first and foremost of which was sitting in the living room all night with Grandpa watching the Packers win the “Super!” Bowl. We chuckled walking all those stairs up to the apartment thinking about hauling two strollers with us every time last year. We also chuckled when we found some Legos under the couch that we lost last year.
All in all, it was a successful seven weeks and Ljubljana has certainly engrained a special place in our hearts. Thank you for joining us again on our journey and for allowing us to share our experiences with you. We hope you’ve enjoyed it too!
