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.
A light rain jacket is all you’ll need to. Pack light.
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 .
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.
Hostelworld is an incredible resource.
