We walked the streets of the town, we went up to the Ptuj Castle, and then we ate gelato. It was really fun chatting with Silva and Matjaz, and they were excellent hosts. I really appreciated them spending a Saturday morning with me. I took so many pictures, and I learned so much, but I'll save some of those photos and trivia bits for when I write a travel book.
We were going to stay the night at the cabin but it was stormy and rainy so we couldn't enjoy the great outdoors. We drove back to Celja and watched the Lord of The Rings because I've never seen any of them, and they are Sanja's favorite.
Saso and Sanja drove me back to Trieste where I waited for my flight home. I was excited to see Richard and the kids again, but I felt completely satisfied.
I've typed a concluding paragraph to sum up my holiday in Slovenia at least four times and they all sound trite. So I'll leave it at this- it was an amazing, well-rounded vacation and I'll never forget it.
