Hello RS Readers -
Our trip, which has been planned since around mid-March is almost upon us! We are excited to travel to Slovenia for the first time. Many of you have been very helpful as we assembled this itinerary. If you could look this over and add any last minute thoughts or recommendations, I would appreciative.
