Summer Spots in Slovenia

 

 

When we think of summer, we usually think of having some time off, possibly somewhere near the sea or in nature - wherever we feel most peaceful and relaxed. We think of time off school or work, some moments for ourselves and time to spend with those we love. We think of calmness and about being able to press the 'off' button which somehow never seems to happen during the rest of the year when there is constantly another task to complete.

I reflected upon which places made me feel this way at home, not in another country or city where everything immediately makes you feel different because you've never experienced it before. But at home, where things feel more like a routine. I think it's important to have spots at home that are unique in their own way because it makes us cherish our hometown a lot more. 

If you haven't found any places of that kind yet, I think this year is the right time to go looking for them. Being unable to travel right now due to the current circumstances may make us feel a bit sad, because we won't be able to visit the city we've been wanting to for a long time, but it gives us an opportunity to discover spots in our country that might make us feel just about the same as that foreign city you've been daydreaming about. 

 

Svetlinik beach - This is my city's central beach, if we can call it that. The name is Slovenian for "lighthouse" as there is a white lighthouse on the edge of the beach. My hometown used to be an island a long, long time ago and it's name literally means island in Italian (Isola). Since it was a fishermen's town in the past, there were a number of boats and vessels leaving and arriving in its port and therefore it needed a lighthouse to guide them. When I was still a kid, my parents would take me there during the summer to swim and spend evenings at the beach. But the reason why I chose this place as one of the special spots is especially for its incredible sunsets. You can sit on the pebble stones and wait for the magic to unfold right in front of your eyes; a sunset by the sea. How much more magical can it get?

 

Anywhere with a book - because what is summer without reading, right? Whether you're at the beach with the sound of the waves in the background or in a quiet park with birds chirping or even at home. Wherever you are, a book has the power to take you elsewhere. So, especially this summer when travelling is not considered to be the safest, we can choose to travel with our minds by immersing ourselves in plots that are happening somewhere else, to someone else, but still, make us feel as if we are a part of them.
