For years, I've dreamed of moving abroad. Next year, just before I turn 35, I may have a chance to live that dream for two months. I'm considering taking an eight-week leave from my corporate America job next summer to explore Slovenia and "live like a local." I plan to rent an apartment in Ljubljana, experience the city and rely on public transit/rental cars to see the rest of the country. I spent a week in Slovenia last summer and absolutely loved it, so I'm eager to spend more time there. During my stay, I will have some close family members visit me, so I'll be able to show them around. I also plan to take a few weekend trips to other countries during my two months.
My question is very open-ended: Does anyone have any thoughts to consider on my plan or any recommendations for my trip? I welcome any feedback as I begin the planning process.
