Greetings. Welcome to Piran Café.

I'm Bob Ramsak, a reporter, photographer and blogger driven by a lust for travel, art, culture and justice. I’ve visited 54 countries and write something and make pictures every day. Piran Café is my notebook, kicking since 2006.

I roam often but Piran Café is not a typical travel blog. It's a collection of experiences, moments and vignettes, both long-form and short, connected and propelled by those primary passions and published here to inform, entertain and engage. More here.

I'm based between Cleveland, Ohio, USA and Ljubljana, Slovenia; currently I'm blogging from Quito, Ecuador.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your visit and please, don't be a stranger.
