Bled: The picture perfect town

Lake Bled is so beautiful that you’ll swear it’s been Photoshopped. You can rent a rowboat from the township of Bled and slowly make your way out to Bled Island in the centre of the lake.  Once you step foot on the tiny island, you’ll find a quaint church and a small cafe where you can have an ice cream and admire the surrounding scenery. This is surely the most tranquil spot in Slovenia.

Vintgar is a narrow gorge carved out over time by the Radovna river which weaves and cascades through the gorge at great speed, only slowing briefly in places to catch it’s breath. The experience is exhilarating and thousands traverse the trail that leads 1600m to the Šum Waterfall. Enjoy the sounds of the crashing waters as a torrent of emerald green rushes beneath your feet. I stopped time to time to admire the surrounding nature and wildlife, and for my camera to get lot of opportunities to catch the magical shots. The walkways are quite narrow and high in places. Shoes with good traction are a good idea.

Where to stay

One of your biggest travel expenses and time-consuming tasks is booking accommodation, and we all want to save time and hopefully some money when searching for deals online.

Whilst there are plenty of websites these days to help you search for accommodation, some are more trustworthy than others, and some are easier to navigate than others.

1. Booking.com:

I’m sure you are already familiar with Booking.com, they are my all time favourite with lot of different types of accommodation you can book on their website: Hotels, Apartments, Resorts,  Villas,  B&B and Guesthouses.

In my opinion, not only are they are the best hotel booking site, but the best accommodation website.

And if the above options aren’t enough for your style or budget, you can even book Lodges, chalets, luxury tents, campsites and more.

2. AirBnb

It is an online marketplace and hospitality service, enabling people to list or rent short-term lodging including vacation rentals, apartment rentals, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms. 

Unforgettable trips start with Airbnb.
