The end of 2010 rolled out so quickly (and hazily in the way only ends of the year can be hazy) that I had no time for introspections and retrospections. Therefore, I didn’t determine which was my favorite city of the past year, nor my favorite travel. Can I say everything was my favorite?

– There’s one thing I really yearned for this winter, but didn’t make it happen: a trip to someplace warm. Before last December, winters in Ljubljana were always unpleasant, but not in an unbearable way like now.

– I took surprisingly few trains in 2010. Strange because taking trains was something I partly identified with (and enjoyed as long as the rides were not too dull).

– We didn’t go to Venice in December either, but thankfully I know what Venice in December looks and feels like, so I’m not too sad.

Dubrovnik (photo above) is where I’d like to be on January 1st 2011. It might have to do with the fact that I missed Venice – I think of Dubrovnik and Venice as sister cities because of their similar historical development (they were both independent states for the longest time, and it still shows).

– In regards to fashion: the place is really the best accessory there is.

– In regards to my “hometown”: I’m as clueless as ever.

– I write considerably less in my moleskine than ever before, which means I keep most thoughts in my head. If I did New Year’s resolutions, one of them would be to start writing things down more again.
