Beautiful spot for a charge. And Ljubljana has an electric road train for getting around! πŸ’šπŸ”ŒπŸ”‹

Woodland and shrubland make up more than 60% of Slovenia's land cover (compared to 13% in the UK). It is home to wolves, bears, and two million people, and the whole country would fit into the Highlands of Scotland.

This article is brilliant. A simplistic focus on energy efficiency does not solve the big problems that we are facing: "...the key step here is to think of energy efficiency as a means rather than an end in itself..." solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2018 @[email protected]

A natural swimming pool complete with its own little ecosystem and array of wildlife. Last night we watched swifts swooping down and picking off insects from the surface. Had a lovely swim among the frogs, tadpoles, water boatmen and dragonflies.

Stumbled upon the beautiful town of Wittenberg. Pretty much the entire place is pedestrianised. Lovely. πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ

Currently reading Dear Mr Harper, the excellent biography of Robin Harper, Britain's first Green parliamentarian. Stumbled upon this bit about Andrew Neil's editorship of The Scotsman. I'll never understand why the BBC think it's ok to employ him as an unbiased political commentator.

Who will they employ to replace him when he retires? Paul Dacre?

"The four-way split of the vote in Peterborough means that all of that city is now represented by an MP who won with less than a third of the vote. This could be replayed on a national scale. At a general election, there could be scores of Peterboroughs." theguardian.com/commentisfree/
