Visiting family in France and Slovenia - Logistics

Jump to last reply

I would like to visit my mother's family in Nice and Kobarid in the next few weeks. It is really not a sightseeing adventure but a chance see them after my mother's sudden death last month.

I haven't informed anyone yet, except my husband. I can certainly call and ask my family in Kobarid (through my dad - I don't speak Slovenian), but then I would be committed and I don't want to commit. Can anyone tell me the best way to do this from JFK? Maybe fly into Nice, spend time with my cousins and Aunt and then take the train to ???? Can't really figure out what the closest train station is. I'm sure one of my cousins or uncles can pick me up at a train station near Kobarid. Or maybe JFK to Ljublijana and then train to a town near Kobarid and Nice afterwards.

thanks again for your help
