Thank you America!

I just wanted to take a moment and thank all the people who made our vacation great-- from all the captains who flew our planes to all the friends who hosted us. We really appreciate the kindness and the homes and beds of Richard and Alia and Emma and Christina and big shout out to my mom! I appreciate all the good friends that had dinner with us, made time to come out and hang with us, even those who only had a few seconds to spare. Thanks to all the people who bared with me as I slightly shakily drove up and down the highways of California, and to those who gave us directions when the GPS didn't make any sense. Thanks to those people who moved out of the way when we were taking one of our ten billion photos. I thank the park service people and guides and maintenance workers who help keep New York and California's public spaces so beautiful and nice to photograph. Most of all, I thank The Captain for being such a wonderful travel buddy, this was one of the best holidays of my life.

We'll be back!

OK, here are pictures...

@Anonymous - Thanks for reading! Good luck to you and your boyfriend. If you are going to import him, I do ask you to be patient and open to his challenges. Slovenia is a very tough place for foreigners. Slovenians are wary of non-Slovenians, and while they are too shy/coward to actually be outwardly rude to foreigners, they are not open. Because of that, it can be difficult for foreigners who don't speak Slovenian (which is most of us) to find work, so both of you should be prepared for that and any of the subsequent frustration. There are myriad other things that may possibly be tough for him as well, so I ask that you show him the best of what Slovenia has to offer and hope that it will make up for all the things he might be missing from home. :)

I know there are many obstacles waiting for us and i think he is well aware of them as well. He has been here for quite some time, already started to learn Slovenian this summer and it is his own decision to move. But still thanks for advice, i will start preparing a big basket of patience, i know we will both need it. tina
