Last stop: Lake Bled, Slovenia

I’ve been really excited about visiting Slovenia from the very beginning of this trip, and it’s hard to believe that we’re already here. This our last stop before returning to Venice tomorrow and heading home the following day. Slovenia is known for its beautiful scenery, kind people, affordable prices and smart politics, and though we’ve only been here for an afternoon I’d have to say that this seems like a country that lives up to all of those things. Lake Bled is a beautiful place to take a walk, a run, a bike ride or row across the lake to a beautiful little island with a cathedral on it, and we did all those things this afternoon (except the bike ride). We’re not going to make it to Ljubljana, which sounds like a great city, to which I have to say “300 hairy bears’ (that’s a Slovenian curse, they are very mild mannered). Guess I’ll just have to come back. Anybody up for it?

Thanks for reading and viewing my photos. This will be my last blog post from this trip!
