Caught the train up to Slovenia this morning. Pretty ride through the country. Got to Slovenia and they are such nice people. Everyone speaks English here, and they are very polite and willing to help. The info guy kept making phone calls for us and telling us where to go. Walked up to the castle on the hill today. It was nice, but they are redoing it so thats not so great. Trying to make it more modern. Had great views though. Our hostel is in an old prison redone by artists to be a hostel. Lots of pics. Neat looking place. Got an excellent dinner really cheap. Everything is pretty cheap here. Want to came back and spend more time here.

Woke up later than usual today and found out that the woman sleeping in the loft bed was pregnant
. Couldn't have felt more guilty, however, she refused to take the double bed on the floor over the bunk bed. Got lost on the bus system and had to walk to where we needed to be after the bus driver just parked and walked away. Came back to the hostel and had a tour of the former prison. Went from there to Atlantis a waterpark in town. My goodness where to start. The pools were small, and the waterslides weren't that special, but the place was very interesting. We got a Thai massage and then went to Sauna World. We got stared at for having clothes on, lots of weird looks, so we got naked with everyone else. Took some kind of mineral volcanic bath that made the skin so soft. 25 minutes of heat lamps, smelly stuff, steam, different coloured lights, 7 naked people rubbing minerals on each other with a group shower at the end. 3 couples and one random staring creepy guy who wanted someone to lube his back, but none would. Back into the naked pools, hot tubs, and saunas. Got some fund and fruit and watched the world cup. Topped off the night with a chocolate bath similar to the mineral bath except no people and 70% cocoa. Awesome. Whole day cost us about $40. Came back for the night to our king sized bed in a new room. I officially love this country. Maybe I will come back and teach English here or something. I want to come back for a much longer time than two days though. There are many sights outside the city but still need more time. Also, been thing a lot about sailing lately. More thoughts later.
