“We’re not lost… wait… yes… no… I don’t know, but let’s go and find out.”

About two weeks into working with Taylor Burk, I didn’t mind getting lost. Quite frankly, I didn’t know much about Slovenia, so for all we knew we were headed towards paradise.

At this point, we were not. We were definitely lost. I’m unsure if we were even on a real road, but surrounded by green mountains, great music, and even better company, exploring the unknown was worth the risk.

Per usual.

I’ll take getting lost and spontaneous viewpoints any day. Triglav Valley was one of those days. We did however, road trip through some of Slovenia’s mystical dwellings, so unfamiliar to Americans and Canadians yet treasured by Unesco World Heritage rankings.

They looked a little something like this:

1. Lake Bled, Slovenia

It’s a fairy tale land. Row boats, a clock tower, and a castle along a lake cradled by mountains. Call Tinderalla because dreams do come true.

I got stuck hanging out with these two. They’re alright. So are their photos.

2. Ljubljana, Slovenia

Enchanted by a royal sunset, the former king’s manor continues to thrive with architecture and canal moments as gracious as its snapshots (or Snapchats, whatever floats your row boat).

    Great blog post. Next time visit Soca valley as well which is only a drive away with a car train from Bled and Bohinj lake. Worth to visit!

    Slovenia looks like an underrated spot to discover. My contributor Priya just wrote a post for Dining Traveler about spending the day in Slovenia. Between her post and yours I am sold!
