A Weekend in Rome

I saw Rome many times from a bird’s eye view, usually on my way across the Atlantic. There was also one attempt a few years ago when we were supposed to land in Rome, rent a car there and drive to Amalfi coast. Only that time we missed the plane and drove directly from Trieste airport to Naples, without stopping in Rome. So there I was, in my late thirties, having visited 46 states, climbed the pyramids, cuddled with tigers, swam with sharks… but never spent a single day in the eternal city. Until this weekend in November. A weekend in Rome. When everything was absolutely perfect. Getting there and around Getting to Rome from Slovenia is easy and relatively […]

Slovenes abroad: Sasa, Malmö (Sweden)

Curiosity, a desire for new challenges and business opportunities led Saša to the ‘’cold north’’ two years ago. She landed in Malmö, a town in the south of Sweden, but judging by her tweets, the temperature there does not fall behind the rest of the country. Honestly, since I REALLY hate cold, I have never even thought about visiting Sweden. But after this chat with Saša, there is a high chance I will drop her a visit very soon. Hi, Sasha. Why Sweden? It just happened. I was always drawn to Sweden in some way. It was in one of my school trips to Planica, when I bought a Swedish flag instead of Slovenian and shortly afterwards I started learning […]

Slovenci v svetu: Saša, Malmö (Švedska)

Radovednost, želja po novih izzivih in poslovna pot so Sašo pred dvema letoma pripeljali na “mrzli sever”. Pristala je v mestecu Malmö, ki sicer leži na jugu Švedske, a sodeč po njenih tvitih temperaturno ne zaostaja za preostalim delom države. Ker sem sama bolj pri “zmrznjenih”, o potovanju na Švedsko nisem še nikoli razmišljala. Saša pa me je z odgovori čisto navdušila in ni dvakrat za reči, da jo bom šla obiskat že naslednje poletje. Živjo, Saša. Zakaj Švedska? Kar nekako se je zgodilo. Zanimivo je, da sem na nekem šolskem izletu v Planico namesto slovenske kupila švedsko zastavo in se kmalu zatem, iz čistega firbca, naučila šteti po švedsko. Očitno mi je bila že od nekdaj namenjena 🙂 Je […]

5 things to see in Rome for free

We visited Rome on the first weekend of November (actually we had 3 whole days and a half), and since this was our first time in the eternal city, we had to focus on seeing only the most famous attractions. Our plan was to visit Colosseum, Vatican City, Fontana di Trevi, Piazza Navona, the Spanish steps and everything else which would come in our way. Unfortunately we didn’t count on the crowds (honestly, I thought the high season would be over) and since we didn’t want to stand in the long lines to visit the most popular places, we changed our strategy to “Que Sera, Sera”. We were blessed with 3 whole days of sun and crystal clear skies, so […]
