What happened to me today is a perfect example why I really like Europe. Two days ago I received a text message on my phone which was intended for someone else, being a true Canadian I was concerned that the person who did the texting know that they had the wrong number so they would not feel slighted when the other person did not respond. So I texted back (yes that is right I am getting into this texting thing and I even enjoy it) letting them know that I was not in fact the person that they were looking for. After I sent the text message I received another message asking me who I was so I explained that I was a Canadian studying in Slovenia and gave my name. Then this person texted me to let me know that if I were interested in coffee they would be happy to chat a bit about Slovenia and give me some helpful hints. In the spirit of being in Europe I agreed and we met today for coffee, they are seriously big on their coffee here honestly not a day has gone by where I have not gone for coffee at least once. The guy (I had no idea if it were a guy or girl) turned out to be really cool and was pursuing a masters in international business so we talked about business a bit and he gave me lots of helpful suggestions on places that I should visit while I am here (he even brought a map to give me) and even offered to set me up with a friend of his who speaks french if I were interested in learning. We ended up talking for 3 hours and I left with his email address and a promise that I would email him so we could get together this winter for some snowboarding. This is why I love this country seriously people are so friendly and interested in everything that you have to say.
Also while I was waiting to meet this guy for coffee I snapped some more pics of town town Ljubljana. Note the mountains and castle in the backgrounds.
