Postcard from Slovenia

Classic, yet wintry view of Lake Bled

I'm back from a long weekend in Slovenia, thanks to my friend F from WI who organised a girls' weekend for four of us after she fell in love with the country on her summer holidays this year.

The view is of Lake Bled with its island and castle. We decided to take the local bus there from the capital Ljubljana, which was an adventure as it wound its way through tiny Alpine-like villages to get there. As you can see we had perfect weather for our walk around the lake, before retiring to a cafe for a delicious lunch.

The Slovenian people are welcoming and convivial, with a quiet confidence born out of their love for this recently formed country. The food and wine are fantastic, and there is so much to see and do, whether you prefer cultural exploits, exploring the natural world, an active or sporty holiday, or a mix of all three. Our time there was a perfect antidote to the winter blues.

I'll be back in a few days time to show you some the festive delights and greenery from Ljubljana.
