Reviewing LEGO sets

In the last weeks while I wasn’t posting much, I was pretty involved in my LEGO hobby. I started sorting loose bricks in the bins to add them to the existing storage system (hopefully, I’ll be able to take more pictures when the mess won’t be so obvious), building sets and reviewing some of them. Within the Eurobricks’ Reviewers Academy, I reviewed 41033 Jungle Falls Rescue and 41094 Heartlake Lighthouse. Both reviews are extensive, so if you’re interested, grab a cup of coffee and follow the links.

The spring awakening

It’s been a while since my last post, and a lot happened in this time. Mostly, I was kept to busy to sit behind the computer, and I spent much more time outside than I did before. The reason for this was extremely nice weather, sunny and warm with little winds. Also, the days got longer, and it was great taking even longer walks in daylight. I used the opportunity and went to visit a local botanical garden Arboretum Volčji potok. Considering I bought a year ticket, I’ll be there again and many times. It’s the largest horticultural facility in Slovenia, and very well known. When travelling, I always try to visit local parks and botanical gardens, but for some reason this didn’t apply locally. Now that I’m living very close to the Arboretum, I took the opportunity and went there for a long walk. The grounds is about 80 hectare, and there’s a lot of paths around it. As I went there in the middle of a work day, and since the spring is at the beginning, there were hardly any visitors. To top it off, a very nice elderly lady I met at the entrance gate while leaving the park, made a nice comment about my age while chatting about leaving home and living on your own. Apparently, in her eyes I was a 20 year old. No need to say, I’ll be back to the park to here more comments like this. And to see the nature bloom, too.
