California. Twenty hours from Ljubljana to LAX, with connections in Brussels and Newark. - May 2016

Vienna; 1 hour by plane (expensive), 6 hours by train (direct connections), 4-5 hours by car. - Jul 2014

From the East Coast of the US, it is about a 12 hour trip, with a connection in Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, etc. - Jun 2011

To fly home to Washington State, you go from here to Frankfurt or Amsterdam, then to Detroit or some place like that, then to the west coast. If you're paying for tickets on your own, you can get cheaper flights from Venice, but it's a 2 1/2 hour drive to Marco Polo Airport. - Jun 2010
