I’m in Slovenia visiting Alenka at the moment. Her home is near the Austrian border, and yesterday we took a little “wine walk” for a couple of hours (after stuffing ourselves silly with a Bosnian specialty, Čevapčiči), stopping to sample local wines along the way in both Slovenia and Austria.

The day before we spent a few hours bottling about 1,000 bottles of family wine.

Not a bad way to spend your weekend, I must say. Here’s a few photos (the first set is a slideshow; I’ve had issues getting it to play but I’m on a slow connection. Please let me know in the comments if it’s working or not? Thanks!)…

This morning, Alenka’s brother was fixing a hole in the roof. I climbed up for the view, and shot this using Photosynth on the iPhone. Pretty cool software (be sure to pan down; you can see the hole I’m standing in!).
