Beautiful Slovenia

Updated: Oct 18, 2021

We recently traveled to Slovenia, birthplace of my husband's mother, and a beautiful country which we had never seen. It is surrounded by Italy, Austria, Hungary, Croatia and has some land on the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the most scenic countries in the world with Alpine mountains surrounding its borders, rich farmland, and the bluest of lakes. Visiting this area offered wholesome outdoor activities plus superb al fresco dining.

We were also interested in the country's history. When my mother-in-law was born this area was in Austria-Hungary, following WWI it was called The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes until 1929, when the term Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and then Yugoslavia alone was used. It is now the independent country of Slovenia along side of Serbia and Croatia. Slovenians seem peaceful people but there has been much bloodshed by her neighbors, and over possession of this land.

One of the soldiers who fought to protect Slovenia in WWII was my husband's uncle. He and his family paid the ultimate price for this patriotism. The fate of our family, plus the beauty, turmoil, excitement, and ultimately triumph of these people, will be the basis for my next novel

probably not coming out until early 2023. I will continue to report my efforts here and hope you will be interested.

Pictures will continue to appear. Please note that the vegetables are fresh, with beef and lamb grown right there leading to fabulous dining.

Cindy definitely has an adventurous spirit. Who else would dare to cross the ocean during the pandemic to research her next book? Hoping that the next work will include some authentic historical background. Looking forward to the magic that Cindy will undoubtedly spin from her experience!
