Day 16 (Slovenia): rest day in Sezana

today’s distance: 0km 
total distance: 1440km 

The day was a day of rest. I needed it - my body had called for it. The last two days had been slow (though with some good climbing of some 1000m two days before), but still, I’ve been covering a good amount of distance since I took off. I wanted to update the website and bring things up to speed only to discover that the site had gone down.

Plus, I wasn’t all lazy today. There are good news since I now - after traveling to Ljubljana by train - have my work contract for an academic position at the University of Miami in my hands. My parents had sent it to Miha - a former grad student at the University of Heidelberg. He was kind enough to bring the contract to Ljubljana from his home town. I owe him a big thank you for this - my attempt at making up part of it was thwarted as he was not going to let me pay for good cakes and tea we consumed. But Miha, thank you very much - you do know that you have a standing invitation to Miami for as long as I will be there.

I headed back to Sezana in the overheated trains (as Gandalf had pointed out a day before) doing some planning for the upcoming days. Another word of thanks is due to Marko and his parents - they have been great. The food his mother prepared was hitting the spot every time. Thank you for letting me hunker down for a day of much-needed rest!!!

I hate to say I told you so.. But good to see that it worked out with contracts and everything.

You were so right Gandalf. But it was all worth it in the end …
