Bled, Slovenia: Happy Half Century!

I've just concluded my first half century here on the earth. In honor and celebration of my 50th birthday, Luka, the proprietor of The "Garni Hotel Berc," presented me at check-in with a bottle of Slovenian chardonnay:

That was very nice. The accommodations here are very nice. Lots of blonde wood. Very alpine:

Slovenia is a very interesting place. It is very different from Croatia. Here's my observation, for what it's worth: In Slovenia, they speak a language very similar to Croatia. But culturally, it is like Austria. The people here look more Germanic/Alpine, blue eyes and sandy brown hair, much more fair than my Croat brethren and sister-en.
