to be together

hey guys, I must tell you something: 
it is very big pleasure to make all those soft, sweet creatures.
But it is even bigger pleasure when I know that you like them and that they are making you happy:)

Caffe at TOZD bar

Although we are not the Lonely Planet team we wish to introduce you some coffee shops and places we visited in Ljubljana. Some of them we like a lot, some of them we just like, some of them... (no comments...). To some of them we are regulary coming back. To some of them we were only once - the first and the last time. 

So let's start with our view of Tozd bar.

La Linea behind the bar:)

The location of Tozd is almost perfect in old part of Ljubljana nearby the river at St.Jacobs bridge. It is quite quiet and peacfull although still in the close centre. For location  we are giving 9 out of 10 points. Outside the bar there is street garden with big wild chesnut tree growing on the pavment. It gives a lot of shadow, so you can hide from burning summer sun. 
While you drinking your coffee you can admire the beautiful river Ljubljanica or watch tourists and local people passing by. 
Interior is contemporary with some crazy but nice ideas. It is obvious that owner likes bikes as you will find few of them inside- even hanging from the ceiling. There are some other funny and trendy decorative elements. Inside you will find some leaflets informing abot current culural events, a few newspappers to browse (mostly fashion and design titles) and also lately very popular in coffee bars- little "library".
In Tozd you have a lot of alkoholic and non-alkoholic drinks. You can also have a little snack. As usually we focused on our favourite drink - coffee. 
For coffee with milk we give 8 points out of 10. The milk cream is good as well as the taste. The service is nice and kind but in 70 % you get your drink spilled on the plate... as there is no napkins on the tables be carefull- your coffee is happily droping on your white, summer outfit... Coffee is served in optimisticly orange cups, water you will get in a glass buret which will remind you about chemistry night mares from high school time...
The water closet is very small but clean and if you have a luck it will be even a soap for washing your hands... 
As a young parents we are putting attention if the place for our coffee time is "child-friendly". If you have a little baby in Tozd you will have a problem with changing diapers as there is no extra place for it. You can clean your baby on the bunch near the bar (of course if it's not taken and if you like to changing nappies while standing in a doorway to toilet). If you bring you baby in a stroller then you will have a few tables to sit with a proper "parking place". We find "our" table with a good parking unfortunately it is taken quite often.
Although Tozd is very nice place is not so occupied by tourists. In the evening is crowded and filled mostly with young, fancy dressed and good looking local people.
We like that place, we like big chestnut tree, orange cups and a river so we are coming back there with freshly changed nappy.

Let's find a place to park our stroller.

A little library on the back

Nice Polish accent. Who will find a book by Polish Nobel Prize winner?
Inside is small but cosy and nice.

glass buret- a reminder of my high-school night mare called "chemistry lessons"

We liked that coffee

When you find your path, you must not be afraid

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.”

Ljubljana in the summer time

Last days are a little bit crazy. A lot of things happening.
On Saturday I was a part of the foreigners market organizated in Ljubaljana by Slovenska Filantropija (Slovenian Filatropy). It was very nice time spent in very nice company. For a few last days we have at home our lovely friends from Hungarian band Cirkuszka, who this days are having concerts here in Ljubljana. So every evening spent together is full of talks and laughing. 
And I am preparing a new exhibition. Promise to write something more about it soon.

p.s. Ljubljana is becoming warm and sunny- it is really a summer time!!!
