I like that river. I'm going to visit Slovenia someday. Are you going to meet the famous Slovenian, Klara?
This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Section 8, the river is incredible. Hopefully the sun will be out tomorrow and I can get some good pics. Plan to hike the river from its source to where I'm staying in Bovec about 24km downstream.

Barbi is cool but you have to keep your eye on her. Our superior American organs fetch top dollar on the Eastern European black market so never accept a drink from her or you might wake up in a bathtub full of ice missing a kidney.

What's wrong with your camera? All your photos seem a bit weird.

I only managed to get his spleen, Section8. It was dark, I was in a hurry.

So jealous, Higgs! Your photos suck but it still looks amazing. Make sure you have spritzes with Klara. That's what she drinks so you can surreptitiously switch drinks with her.

Loved Slovenia. Only drawback was that I went there before I was posting on the tree so didn't get to meet Klara!

It is very nice trail running, EMG. America should colonize the place.

I couldn't be bothered to list captions using my phone to post, but the first batches of pics are from in and around Bovec/Soca River Valley. The very first pic was from in front of where I stayed in Bovec. There are a few from Ljubljana followed by more from Bovec. The most recent are from Lake Bohinj. Sad to say my battery ran out before I could get some cool shots earlier today after a small climb overlooking the lake. Best views of the trip, too.

Besides, I don't think Higgs wants European women to start driving cars around cities.

We've both met Higgs. We almost know each other for real now, Klara.

Yesss!

Leela, end of October is the worst time ever to visit Slovenia!!!
Mainly because I'll be in Rome at that time. When did you have in mind? I leave on the 29th.

Those are terrible dates for Slovenia, as Klara says.

The place to be that week is Munich.

And if you can be in Vienna on the evening of November 1, I will buy you a ticket to the Magic Flute at the Volksoper.

Think of a town as unlike Vienna as you can possibly imagine, and that is where I am forced to be on Nov 1st, Vinny. What a lost opportunity. But thanks for the thought.

Arriving Sunday 30 October (or maybe a day earlier), leaving early Thursday 3 November.

I will also be in Prague from Thursday 20 October to Monday 24 October if that is handier.

Vinny, I just realised my Mum will be away for two weeks, and there's no one else to look after my kids. :/
Next time, hopefully.

Thanks for reviving this, leela.

I had forgotten on what thread I mintioned Prague to Rez, and hsdn't seen her answer.

Next time, rez.

Klara, if you like Pink Ladies, try a Clover Club. Like a Pink Lady but with an egg white instead of the cream. Shake over ice and strain into a martini glass.

Oh I wasn't the one drinking the Pink Lady; Higgs was. My drink was called something a lot manlier.
It was probably not the Pink Lady you have in mind, though. It was a smoothie.

Also, I wouldn't drink anything with either cream or egg white in it, if I'm honest.

I agree with Leela we should have taken selfies.
