Postcards from autumnal Ljubljana

The flight into Ljubljana was perhaps one of the most picturesque approaches I have enjoyed in a plane. Autumn sunlight shone over the small city and the surrounding hills, mountains and plains, all of which were covered in well-watered greenery or bright orange and yellow leaves that showed it was early November. With those views, I was introduced to a beautiful city that did not disappoint once I was exploring it by foot. Though I would love to experience the city and Slovenia during summer, the timing of my visit on this occasion showed a stunning side to the city as it prepared for winter.

A little London visit

Since leaving London after two magical years there from 2013 to 2015, I had only visited once, for a few days shortly after my visa ended. I have been waiting for an opportunity to return, and the perfect chance came in September when two of my good friends happened to be visiting at the same time. It’s a very bittersweet thing to visit a city you used to call home — on one hand it makes you long for the days you spent there, while on the other you realise you don’t belong there anymore and can never go back. Still, visiting again with close friends who helped make the time living there so special was perfect, and I was effortlessly reminded of one thing that makes London such an extraordinary city — there is always more to discover, and you can never know completely.
