In Walden, Henry David Thoreau wrote that a person needs no more than an acre of land to keep himself amused for life. Truer words have never been written. I found that 0.4047 hectare piece of paradise today right here in Ljubljana, the capital of the green piece of Europe, along the majestic banks of the Sava River.
Just a 15 minute bike ride away lies an idyllic spot where you can launch a canoe ,
take your horse for a ride ,
and drop off your garbage
before freeing yourself from the chains of society and blowing up your car .
Everything from the mundane
to the exotic is celebrated,
with a bountiful oasis awaiting at every turn.
With the rush of whitewater as an invigorating soundtrack, you can enjoy the rebirth that is spring by watching the spring flowers bloom
and mighty trees blossom .
Here you can revel in the soothing sounds of nature ,
