Slovenian Beauty

It is a rare treat where you can travel anywhere in a country and still see the most extraordinary nature throughout. Slovenia is such a country. A very well kept secret! Slovenia is a coastal Alpine country in southern Central Europe bordering Italy on the west, the Adriatic Sea on the southwest, Croatia on the south and east, Hungary on the northeast, and Austria on the north.

Yesterday late afternoon our workshop coordinator, Stanko
Blatnik (in the pic with me below) took us for a walk to the lake, just a few minutes outside Velenje. The town was developed from an old coal mine, during former Yugoslavian times. Stanko has an institute for creativity in Velenje, Humanopolis and we are discussing the possibility to extend our work throughout Slovenia in the future. From here we travel up to Vienna to start workshops at the Vienna International School on Thursday. Stay tuned for more!
