Meet the People

17 May 2018, 16:34 PM

A few weeks ago I attended a meeting at Ziferblat that was part of the training for Migrantour, a project that aims to give migrants in Slovenia the skills and knowledge needed to become tour guides in Ljubljana.

It was there I first met Jana Milovanović, an anthropologist by training who left academia to follow her various interests outside the halls and classrooms of a university setting, working directly with migrants and other marginal groups, a topic that’s only become more interesting, and urgent, in the last few years, with the opening of the Balkan Route to Europe. As such I caught up with Jana a few days later for a coffee and tried to learn more about her life and work in this context.

Katja Rogelj is a force of nature, with a ready smile and easy laugh. Wildly enthusiastic about her life and work in the beauty of Triglav National Park, and Soča Valley in particular, I met up with her just as the season was about to begin, and she was kind enough to answer some questions about how she got into the business, what services she offers, and whether it’s all as dangerous as it looks to these eyes.

While Slovenia is a country that produces and consumes a lot of vegetables, it also has strong dairy and meat farming traditions, which can make things difficult for vegetarians, never mind vegans. We spoke to Neja Maruša Medved, who’s trying to make life easier for those who want to follow a cruelty-free diet about her work with Slovenian Vegan.

Dr. Sonja Merljak Zdovc is the force behind Časoris, the online newspaper for children that makes a weekly appearance here as part of our efforts to provide more material for adult learners of Slovene. She’s a long-time friend of Total Slovenia News, and was kind enough to answer some questions about her life and work.
