Weekend Reads #4

This week has been busy but incredible as I travelled to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. I’m going to be writing all about it next week but I will say now that I LOVED it.

Ljubljana is such a beautiful hidden gem and the small city makes a perfect weekend escape. I was there all week so had time to explore some of the countryside too and was blown away by how gorgeous it is.

You can check out my first two posts here:

Visiting the Karst and Coast of Slovenia

Lake Bled and an Alpine Fairytale tour

Here are some of the posts I’ve enjoyed from the blogosphere this week.

The Truth about Obesity {The Guardian}

This is absolutely shocking and a really frightening subject. I’ve been saying for years that being overweight is so normal that we barely even notice it. We’re always told that curves are sexy (and they are!) but there is a difference between curvy and overweight.
