    I wanted to let you know what a great trip I had and to say thank you for all of your pre-trip help. The trip was fantastic. A lot of the credit for that can go to Tanja. She is a terrific guide, cook, and representative of Slovenia. The rest of the credit can go to your beautiful country! It was also nice to get to meet Luka and Ursula, even if only quickly. Thanks again for everything.
