News PhotoHorizontal,Journey,Lifestyles,Ljubljana,Slovenia,Southern European Descent,VisitPhotographer Collection: AFP TO GO WITH AFP STORY OF BOJAN KAVCIC Miquel Ribas, an 82-year old Spaniard, waves as he visits Ljubljana on July 28, 2014, during a week-long trip to Slovenia. Ribas, who lives in a care home in Mataro, on the Spanish coast near Barcelona, has free accommodation during his trip in a similar care home in Topolsica, Slovenia, provided by Jozica Kucera, a 77-year-old Slovenian widow, who will spend the same time in his room in Spain. This is the first international exchange of rooms in care homes for seniors, organized by social networking agency Linkedage, a Slovenian company that developed a web platform to link residences all over Europe and the world to enable similar exchanges or to rent vacant rooms.
