Slovenia through the eyes of David A. Sutton

In these times of cameras, photographs and smart phones, when we just press a button to create memories, Slovenia has hosted blogger David A. Sutton, a travel artist, photographer and writer. On his travels he takes time to experience new environments and captures them in sketches and creative writing. He captured our green, active and healthy country in a Slovenian story.

David A. Sutton is a travel artist, photographer and writer, with a degree and more than a decade of experience in illustration. He started with his travel sketching in Japan, then Alaska, and then the Caribbean, but it wasn`t until he was backpacking around Europe in 2014 that David truly fell in love with sketching and painting the world. On his visit to Slovenia, he experienced Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, Kamnik and the Velika Planina plateau, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle, Lipica stud farm and the picturesque coastal town of Piran. He captured his feelings and adventures around our unspoilt country through sketching, photography and writing in this creative Slovenian story.

Here are some of the highlights from the story:

*Ljubljana: “the food served at the restaurant was great. And with some incredible views over the city, and the surrounding white-tipped mountain ranges, it’s the perfect spot for a bite to eat, even if you are a little wary of heights.”

*Kamnik: “nestled high above the Ljubljana Basin in a gently undulating plateau, rests a traditional herdsmans’ village. When you first reach Velika Planina, you could be forgiven for thinking you’d just stumbled onto a set from the Lord of the Rings.”

*Postojna Cave: “even though I had seen photos of the caves before I arrived, nothing prepared me for its incredible size, colours and textures.”

*Lipica: “though my first sight of the horses, as they were waiting in their paddock, was impressive, my second sighting was heart thumping - you had to be right there to fully understand the true power of the sound.”

*Piran: “strolling through a maze of Mediterranean alleyways on a sunny day until I reached the ocean front, where I gazed out across the sea at the distant white-tipped Italian Dolomite mountains on one side, and the Croatian coast on the other.”
