Lovely Ljubljana

Slovenia's capital is pronounced a whole lot easier than it looks! Try, Lube-Lee-Anna. That wasn't too bad was it. I had a rough idea of what to expect upon visiting here as a travel blogger I follow rates this as her favourite city in all of Europe! Having spent just a few hours walking around, I would undergo quite a transformation from thinking 'No-way' into 'I can totally see why'. Still, if you'd have told me a few n ...

Lake Bled: Slovenia's no 1. tourist destination

In addition to visiting the capital, Bled is a 'must do' place when in Slovenia. The other popular attraction is the Postojna cave but unfortunately I won't be going. As much as I would like to, the   outright cost is 23 euros and then you have to add 10 on for a return bus journey. Factor in some water through out the day (and even if you bring your own food to keep costs down) you're soon approaching 35 euros! As a backpacker, I ca ...

Another stranger, another road trip

For most of this week the three bed dorm I'm staying in has been occupied by myself and the ex-Home and Away writer, Mark.

Lol. This might be a perfectly normal ...

Why you should come to Slovenia for a holiday!

In case its not already obvious, I've really, really enjoyed my ten days here in Slovenia.

As such, I felt compelled to write this short post as to why you should consider Slovenia as your next short-break holiday destination. This post will summarise some of the experiences I've blogged about so far ...

Maribor has been misunderstood...

By my Spanish friend Nacho and who else I wonder. As the second biggest city in Slovenia, I was surprised when Nacho told me before I knew myself that I was actually coming here, to not bother. 'There is really nothing to see there and really nothing to do', he proclaimed. Worryingly, and as I spent an entire day with Nacho, I know that he is 'worldly' and an intrepid explorer himself so I am perplexed by the difference in opi ...

A magical, starry night in Ljubljana

In fact, tonight was my favourite night all-in-all since my travels begun but you know you're getting old when that statement doesn't involve, Sex, Drugs or Rock n roll. So with two back-to-back tiring but rewarding days behind me in the form of Lake Bled and Triglav National Park, I was genuinely looking forward to long sleep and a day of rest allowing me to catch up with this equally tiring blogging malarkey. This all went to plan an ...
