Pictures of Lake Bled, Postojna, and Zagreb

Remember the trip I took during my fall break a few weeks ago?  Click here if you don't.  I still have pictures to share with you.  Again I've posted them on another site, and I will give you the link here.

First, there's Lake Bled.  It's the famous, picturesque lake in the Slovenian Alps where I spent Halloween.  It was rainy, foggy, and incredible.  The pictures don't really do it justice, but they sure try.  Click here to see them:

Next, my pictures from Postojna.  That's where I visited a big cave full of Koreans, saw the coolest castle ever that's built into a cave/cliff, and met an Indian who was obsessed with the internet.  By the way, I still haven't received my eagerly awaited e-mail from him.  Click this picture to see the rest:

Finally, some pictures from one of my new favorite cities, Zagreb, Croatia.  I fell in love with this place, and I may very well meet my wife there.  She will obviously be beautiful and dressed very stylishly, as all Croatian women seem to be.  Until then, you can enjoy pictures of the city by clicking here:

Now, for my Hungarian word of the day.  It may not be correct, however, because I learned it from the dictionary.  I have a strange distrust of language dictionaries, because they always seem to give a similar, but incorrect, word that causes people to laugh.

Fénykép (pronounced like "faint" without the "T" and "cape").  It means "photo".

One more thing, tomorrow I will (hopefully) be making an exciting announcement about my blog!  Be sure to visit so you can find out what it is.

Ljubljana Pictures

Slowly but surely.  That's how I'm going to add pictures.  Let's start with the first day of my fall break trip.

This was Halloween in Ljubljana, Slovenia.  It was rainy and cold, but that didn't stop us from sightseeing.  We saw a castle, an underground bar full of skeletons, drank hot wine, crossed some bridges, and saw the awesome neighborhood that housed the prison we'd stay at a few days later.

The pictures reminded me of something I need to bring up, though.  There seems to be a tradition around here of using a padlock to symbolize love.  A couple writes their name on it, locks it to something significant, and throws away the key.  It sounds very romantic because it shows how confident they are that their love will last forever.

My issue is with those who choose combination locks.  No key?  How does that show anything?  "I love you so much that we should put a lock on here so that everyone knows!"

Uncomfortably, he answers, "Um, okay, but can we use a combination lock?"

"What are you trying to say?" she replies, with a frown on her face.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go buy a combination lock.  I'll need to make sure I memorize the numbers, you know, just in case.

Szeged Pictures

After my big adventure in the Szeged immigration office, I took a long walk back to the train station.  I was way too lazy to try and do anything touristy.  Instead, I snapped a bunch of pictures to keep you happy.  Feel free to tell me what the buildings are - I certainly don't know.
