Hans plays with Lotte, Lotte plays with Jane

The Slovenians seem to be a very active nation. Everywhere we go we see people engaging in sporting activities of some kind or another. There are plenty of lycra-clad cyclists hurtling around the roads and hoping to be in the next Tour de France; canoeists are on the rivers; there seem to be more olympic size swimming pools in this small country than in the whole of the UK, volleyball is very popular and we were particularly surprised to see a cricket match being played in full whites in one village.

In the small town of Radovljica, most of the 6,000 inhabitants seem to be out enjoying the fresh air on this balmy evening. Within sight of our van there are football fields, tennis courts, badminton courts, table tennis tables, a basketball court, a swimming pool and a volleyball court and they are all being used by the local people.

Not to be out done, we will get out there and show them how to throw a frisbee!
