Dear readers, in about an hour from now I'll be on a trip to Slovenia. And, of course, it's LARP related.
There's a Tolkien fan society in Ljubljana called Gil-Galad, of which I've been aware of since the last year. They already organized some meetings which had several LARP elements, and this year one of their members, Rebeka, started a LARP Slovenia project with several other people who were interested.
Their first meeting is today, and I figured it's a great place to be. Several of my friends from Ognjeni Mač agreed, and decided to joined me which is really great since all of us going have plenty of experience to share.
The Slovenian border is just 20 minutes away from Zagreb by car, and Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is 140 km away from Zagreb. Which makes it close, and rather convenient to visit - and vice versa. And I believe we can both expect Slovenian visitors on our LARPs in the future, as well as interesting LARPs in our neighborhood that we can visit.
Also, tomorrow they have a latex weapon workshop in Medvode near Ljubljana, something we haven't had in Croatia due to us using mostly boffer weapons on our LARPs. It will certainly be interesting. I'll write about this trip when I get back.
