Trails, and Tales, of Triglav

The thing about Slovenia is, whether you've just arrived in Ljubljana or Bled, or you've taken a day trip out to a National Park you've never heard of until now, the place is full of surprising beauty. No matter which corner you turn, it's there.

Slightly less well known amongst foreigner's is Slovenia's largest permanent lake Bohinj. The lake is a glacial lake damned by a moraine.

5 Reasons to Return to Bled

We only had two nights in Bled, and even tho' the place is small, I didn't get time to do everything I wanted to. Especially since we spent one of our days was spent on the most incredible trip (which I'll be writing about at the end of the week). I didn't even get to do some of the things on this list, like visit the castle, or go on the toboggan!

Here are my 5 reasons to return to Bled, not that you need an excuse...

The Fairies of Slovenia

I have a small confession to make:

I believe in fairy's.

And I judge you if you don't. Already in love with Bled and Slovenia, I was even more excited when Nick told me that there were many fairy's in the folklore surrounding Slovenia. Particularly with reference to how Lake Bled came to be.

Bled the Beautiful

"Bled is the most beautiful place you're ever going to see," Nick claimed as we pulled out of Ljubljana.

Of all the places we were visiting, Bled was the one at the top of my list. It was the one place I was already secretly in love with. I'd built it up so high in my head I thought I was bound to be disappointed (ever the pessimist) but as we got closer and closer to town we were surrounded by gorgeous snow capped mountains. It was beautiful before we even got there.
