It's Bill's birthday on May 23rd and we'll be in Ljubljana, Slovenia for two nights...

Well, it's finally happened....we  knew it would, someday - that our luck would run out.  We finally lost something of value to us.  Up until now in past trips, we've been really cautious and that has paid off....but apparently the longer you're gone, the greater the chance that something like this would go wrong.  What happened, you ask?  We don't know exactly where or how, but our little camera (the one that was dropped into the moat and so miraculously survived) somehow....vanished.  We rented a car (again) and re-traced our steps from the day prior, when we visited the Karst region of Slovenia and nothing.

  It's fallen into some odd Slovenian Triangle.  By the way, with it went our 2Gb and 512k SD cards.  :(   The only saving grace is that very recently Bill had downloaded all the pics from those cards onto the portable hard-drive device.  As long as that doesn't fail (heaven forbid, please no), all we've lost is 2 days of pictures.  That could have been much, much worse....

I went through all the normal stages - for about 3 days, I denied it was gone and kept searching Bill's socks, shoes, our bags, etc, until I finally had to face the fact that it wasn't going to appear again.  I said a few words and buried it (figuratively speaking, of course!), promising that I'd buy another when the opportunity presents itself again back home.  It was a good little camera, and we miss it.  :(  If you visit Slovenia, keep an eye out for our little Casio Exilim 750Z (with a very noticeable dent above the viewfinder)....and also let us know if you see one on E-Bay with that identifiable dent!!!

We enjoyed Ljubljana despite the camera loss, and despite the constant rain that fell....but we're also glad our time in Slovenia is done.  It has felt a little, um, how shall we put this....jinxed?
