Let’s go back to Slovenia and how it started!
I have left from Pristina and I didn’t expected at all to fly on an old fashioned turboprop or whatever it is called!
I was almost scared but then it turned out to be an amazing trip!
Of course we couldn’t afford to fly high as the common planes do but I think I have enjoyed it even more!
It was a little scary somehow because when it bends you almost have the impression to be on an earlier fighter aircraft.
No, I have never board one of those and I hope I will never do, by the way I think that the feeling must be more or less the same.
I am sorry for the low quality of the pics but the view was really impressive.

Oh my, you must be the only one who has had a good experience with Adria recently. 😀 There are huge delays and unwanted trips to other airports and things like that. The company is going down… 🙁
Yes, I definitely must be the only one, then! 😅 On the contrary I am one of the many who had an awful experience with flixbus! 😂
Ohh, really? The driver who took a precious key to Slovenia from Rome saved my friends’ holidays. It was weekend and no other mail service could do the job as fast. 😀
Yes, I have seen they do a lot of extra services like that but they were 4 hours late when I left Ljubljana for Zagreb 👹
Yes, like you say🤣
Nice pictures, Flavia.
Again travelling? :-))
Not at the moment. It was a trip of 2 weeks ago but yes, I never miss an opportunity to leave😈😂
I believe you, and I guess all your readers do :-))
Looks like a fun flight. 😊
Scarying but fun, yes😊
Oh, this is amazing! And, your stunning photos make me feel that I went along with you. ♥️
Thank you Tamara. I am always surprised of this strange effect but I am very glad that my pictures help other people travelling around. I use to plan my posts in advance bug I will try to make some more in real time so that it will be really like travelling all together! 😊💪
I’ve flown those a few times. A Fokker several times. And another, an Embraer I think from Guatemala city to Tikal. Not my preferred planes. 🙂
Mine neither. The fear to crash was too strong. By the way I will have to admit that the flight itself was pretty amazing
I love turbo props – old school! Great photos.
Thank you Kerry ☺️
Beautiful pictures. I haven’t flown in years. Little turbo props not my favorite either. Have a cousin whose young daughter is attending pilot school. She has flown for at least 2 years…as soon as she could get a license…and she wants to become a commercial pilot. I am content to see other people’s’ pictures!
Hi Shauna, thank you for stopping by. Well, I think that pilots must have a totally different vision respect ours of simple passengers! I suppose it must be a great job but unfortunately is not for me 😅
Adria have now ceased trading and filed for bankruptcy. A big shame for not only their 500+ staff but also for people like me who fondly remember their once reliable and professional service, and a direct route from Manchester to Ljubljana.
I was not aware of their financial conditions. Were you flyi2from Manchester with the turboprop od did they have other kind of aircrafts?
Never a turboprop from Manchester but the last two times was an Airbus A319 and Bombardier CRJ900 jet, the latter being significantly smaller than the former. By the time of their demise they leased ‘their’ entire fleet and therefore didn’t own any planes.
This is what I was thinking about, a turboprop would have been a little too light to afford the Channel 🤔 by the way I am sorry to learn about this bankruptcy, it is never a good thing.
Ha, you’d be surprised! I flew Salzburg to Manchester a few weeks ago on a turboprop, flying a lowland and subsequently longer route over Germany and Belgium instead of the Alps.
Yes, I am very surprised indeed 😳😱
