show you some more pictures of Ljubljana.

I know people usually suffer from January blues: The post festive December, after the rush and expectations and decorations, a lot of people feel like: "Okay, now what?"

I <3 January! In terms of weather it's the coldest month of the year, with the temperatures way below zero. But the good thing about it? No fog or cloudy weather. Bright winter sun all the way!

  1. All the pictures are so bright, I´m especially liking the second one, with the birds.
    The picture from the old town suggests, that there are small shops on both sides of the street. Are there?
    You mentioned the blues - are you going through them?
    Over here it´s snowing, and yes I suffer from snow blues. Moving around and performing simple everyday tasks takes more time than ever. Grrrrrrrr

    1. The photo with the pigeons is my favourite too :-)And yes there are small shops, cafes, mostly independent small boutiques with jewellery, art, fair trade...
      No blues, like I said January is very much to my liking because the days are starting to get longer, there is more sunlight and the air is clean and crisp.

      I've been absent from the blogosphere because I'm cranking up my efforts in the job search department hence the lack of posts and delay in replying.

    1. All the fountains in Ljubljana are covered, most have very conservative covers. This one is so cute, I had to take a picture of it!

  3. If you hadn't told me these were wintry scenes I wouldn't have known, the light is so bright and clear. I love that last photo of the street curving, the beautiful old architecture. I love old buildings.

    1. Susan, that's Mr C's favourite one :-) I love the old part of Ljubljana, the architecture is really striking.
      It was about 11.00 in the morning when I took the pictures, the light was absolutely perfect.

    snow + I have a nasty stomach virus....

  5. Ida, I'm sorry to hear about the stomach flu :-( I had it last year around this time and it was awful.
    Still no snow here, it's a bit weird. Crazy weather!
