If there was one thing that you wish you had known about living in Slovenia before you arrived and started to settle in, what would it be?

Well, on one hand people are people and so some of the same troubles that arise from human nature will be found everywhere.

The other side of the coin is that the culture and society of a country break down you see unpleasant human behavior come to the forefront: everything from government corruption (yes, I understand that all governments probably harbor some degree of corruption but it's desirable to live in a place where it has a minimal effect on your day to day life) to behaviors such as lying, cheating, and stealing.

The best thing one can hope from a new home country is that these behaviors will be at a minimum, that it is a place where the people are proud of their home and would welcome other well intentioned people who wish to move there and celebrate their language, cultures, and traditions with them.

For starters, I wished I knew how difficult it would be to buy good fresh food shopping, i.e. fruit and veg...these seem to be well below standards especially from the main supermarkets like Mercator or Le Clerc. Certain cuts of meat are impossible to find such as Lamb or free range chickens. I guess it's all down to supply and demand.
