Slovenia made me feel like travel in the good ol' days (mid 60s): The currency is different—tolars, 190 to a dollar; you carry around mounds of bills; the euro will be introduced in January    :( .    The language is incomprehensible (although English is widespread). I stayed in places where you share bathrooms (great way to meet people). Also, I backpacked—at first I thought leaving the suitcase with rollers at home was a mistake, since my back complains at inopportune moments, but suitcases are not practical given all the steps you climb and cobblestones, plus I got used to slinging it over my shoulder after a while.
