WRITING

THE SLOVENIA BOOK

I am the co-author of The Slovenia Book, the best book to read about Slovenia. From the same team that’s been publishing Slovenia’s acclaimed In Your Pocket branded city and regional guides since 2008, The Slovenia Book is the work of a group of experienced foreign journalists who reside in the country and are passionate about sharing their collected knowledge of this amazing country with the widest possible audience. We’ve combined all of the hands-on research of our guides with the high quality photos found in your typical coffee table book, to produce what we hope is a great companion on any trip to Slovenia, or a perfect souvenir to take home with you.
