Every autumn ceremonial descent of the herds from the summer pastures in the mountains take place all across the Alps. This festivities are in Switzerland known as Alpabfahrt, Alpabzug or Desalpe. Few weeks ago, I’ve visited one of those events: Alpabfahrt in Kerns village in Zentral Switzerland.
Previous weekend, my husband and I traveled to Slovenia to attend a wedding of our dear friends. The wedding was held in the north-eastern part of Slovenia in a region between rivers Drava and Mura called Prlekija. The traditions in this area are still very much alive and our friends got married in a traditional way.
My boyfriend and I had great plans how to spend our Easter trip to Slovenia, but instead of sightseeing the lovely places in our home-country, we ended up just hanging out with our families, painting Easter eggs and eating lots Easter dishes.
