Highs & Lows

Everything surrounding Lake Bled, fairytale stuff.

Arriving too early to check in anywhere after taking the night train. A nap was sorely in order.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I wouldn’t have booked more than one night in Ljubljana. There isn’t enough to do and I’d have preferred to stay near lake bled

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    I couldn’t check in to a hotel until the afternoon. Make sure you get some sleep before arriving on the night bus/train.

  • How was the food?

    The food was good but avoid the coffee like the plague. After Italy the quality difference was incredible and I felt like I was drinking liquid fart. Avoid.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Just people watch near the place where it’s always raining. I think that’s where the fun is.

  • Packing tips?

    A light rain jacket is all you’ll need to. Pack light.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Ubers and taxis in Slovenia are incredibly cheap. Don’t hesitate to get one if a bus doesn’t turn up.... which is a regular occurrence .

  • Any surprises?

    Lake Bled happened really by accident. I walked up over a hill and discovered it. I was in shock and needed to sit down to take in the beauty.

  • Booking details?

    Hostelworld is an incredible resource.
