Travelling Without Moving

One good thing about my work is that I get to meet people from all parts of the globe.

Who would have thought I would establish good lasting friendships from folks in The Marshall Islands.

In my old department, Raft3r was seated next to a woman from Slovenia. She hails from Prekmurje and speaks with this lovely thick accent.

My Slovenian friend talks about her hometown all the time. She shows me these amazing photos of her country and recounts stories of her childhood.

Our daily chitchats would last for about half an hour to the detriment of our heavy workloads. I miss that about her.

She tells me about the interesting places to see in Prekmurje, like Murska Sobota, her dad’s birthplace. The city is well known for its castles and excellent wine. 

My friend takes pride in her country and that is pretty remarkable.

Raft3r has earned enough mileage for a free trip to Europe. Man, I love my job! I emailed my Slovenian buddy to see if her offer to be a tour guide still stands.

The reply was a resounding yes.

I told her I was also interested in learning how to ski. She suggested the nearby region of Styria. We quickly planned for a winter trip in 2009.

This early, Raft3r has already made a mental list of things to bring on this trip. To say I am excited is an understatement.

Raft3r is now on the prowl for a time machine. I want to fast track to ‘09.

I'm intrigued by that Murska Sobota since I have a fascination for castles. If you get to visit the place, please take some photos kapatid:)
