Tiny no man's land between Gorizia and Nova Gorica
Visit 45°57'18.6"N 13°38'05.5"E (Gorizia, Italy/Nova Gorica, Slovenia).
"The no man's land between Gorizia (Italy) and Nova Gorica (Slovenia) is very thin and marked with a metal board. Please step on the board and put one foot in Slovenia and the other one in Italy. Take a little time to feel comfortable in this position between the two countries. Open your arms and palms and try to gather sensory impressions and thoughts about the two countries. Close your palms into a fist, as you want to take these qualities and thoughts into your hands. Open your fists and gently touch your heart, releasing any contrast that happens in the past or in the future between these amazing countries. Turn your body 180 degrees and repeat the action as many times as you like. " Salvatore Calí
