From Croatia we looped back north to Slovenia, the last of the former Yugoslav republics on our itinerary. It's a compact country of only 2 million people, most of whom appear to be deeply into hiking, skiing, kayaking, and anything else that will allow them to put a roof rack on top of their cars. In short, it was a place where a Seattleite could feel at home.
Of course, we don't exactly have this kind of thing back at home.
