Here are some picture of us growing up in Koper (Capodistria), Slovenia. That is where we lived when we were growing up before moving to Canada with our mom and dad. Grandma and grandpa stayed behind. Our grandpa (Franjo) came from Croatia, an area that was under Venetian rule in Marco Polo’s time.
