I started trying to highlight 10 moments through the year but it was difficult enough to keep it down to 12.
The year started sadly when I travelled to my friend Rok’s funeral in Kranjska Gora. But it was wonderful to get back to Slovenia and a very snowy Ljubljana.
It reminded me how much I love Slovenia and in September I returned bringing Dawn for the first time.
The most important event of the year, of course, was our 30th wedding anniversary. The reception was in the Culloden Hotel on 18 July 1983. So we went back for dinner with Dawn’s mother and Adam and Owen.
We were already planning the Slovenian holiday, so we took a long weekend in our other favourite place; Guernsey.
When was I most riled? When the Teenage Kicks mural in east Belfast (in memory of John Peel) was destroyed by the Northern Ireland government.
