Took this photo recently in Novo Mesto, just a quick shot with my phone. The footbridge spans across the river Krka from the city itself to a small, forested hill on the opposite bank of the river. The old part of town is easily one of the nicest in Slovenia.

A couple of weeks ago, Ljubljana had its annual 'Museum Night' where most museums charge no admission, one of the museums we visited was the brewing museum which is part of Ljubljana's Union brewery. While I prefer craft beer (and Slovenia has a few very good craft breweries), the museum was pretty interesting, and we got a free beer at the end of the tour. As far as lagers go, Union isn't half bad ;-)
The first photo is outside in the courtyard of the brewery, the second is of a bar from a typical inn from a hundred or so years ago, the last is an assortment of the beer Union now produces (the smaller bottles are special limited beers which will only be sold for a few months). This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Union brewery.

This was taken a month or so ago at the climbing spot at the village of Sisljan, near Trieste, Italy. The climbing spot (or crag) isn't very large but it is right next to the sea, perfect for climbing in the late autumn, winter or early spring.

Trying out posting directly from my phone. This was taken half an hour ago, transferred directly from the camera to my phone via WiFi, quickly edited on the phone and uploaded. Sadly, only a thumbnail showed up on the front page, so I had to re-upload once I got behind a computer. Perhaps next time I'll get it right.
