Penny's Blog

Introducing “The Chronicles of Penny Smith”


Hi everyone!

Welcome to my blog. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Pinelopi (some may also call me Penny, hence the title). I come from Greece and right now I live and work in Metlika, Slovenia. After half a year here and with another half to go, I thought that some of you might be interested to get an insight of what life means here for a foreigner.

Here I am
A lot of you might have heard and some of you might not that there are currently two volunteers working in the MC Metlika I and Alen who is from Bosnia. We came here to work on a project relating with the local farmers and the promotion of their work and their products. Personally I am trying to use this opportunity to work on promoting the cultural heritage of this area and this blog is a step further on collecting and showcasing information about Metlika and the people who live here.
So stay tuned and please feel free to contact me with comments and suggestions. I am really interested in exploring as much of this place as possible and your contribution would mean a lot to me. What you will probably see posted here includes all kinds of recipes made by local products, parts of nature and history that I find interesting, farming procedures and pretty much anything that I find interesting, peculiar or even awesome in the area.
