Sava

It’s been a while since I updated my journal. We adopted a dog, I changed my camera gear and we chilled at this beautiful spot by the river Sava Bohinjka.

Kras

Kras

The end of 2017. No plans for New Year's. The least we could do is spend a few days somewhere nice. So we went to Kras - Karst region of Slovenia, and spent 3 days in an amazing atmosphere. Our whole experience revolved around our accommodation - Hotel St. Daniel. The plan was to see Stanjel - a picturesque hilltop village.

Bohinj

Bohinj

No work Wednesday. Holiday Wednesday. A famous Slovenian poet died 170 years ago Wednesday. 

I haven't been to these parts all that much so it was fun to rediscover some spots and find some yet unknown.

Pericnik waterfall

I probably make a trip to Pericnik waterfall at least once a year. It's one of the best-known waterfalls in Slovenia, located in the Triglav National Park. Winter time, however, offers something special.

Raduha

Our second time visiting Luce and staying at House Raduha. Breznik family was happy with the photos I took in the summer and they invited us back for another treat. This time we chose a night in the hayrack.

A lovely Danish couple came to visit Slovenia. They wanted to do some hiking - me and Luka took them to Visevnik (2050 m). We decided on a sunset hike as I was working in the morning ...

House Raduha

Comment

House Raduha

"House Raduha is located in the old centre of Luce. It got its name from the Raduha Mountain, which slopes down a ridge to the rocky threshold Breznica right at the edge of the village. The only things separating the house and the Breznica threshold is the Savinja River and our garden, which features living units in a beautiful architectural distribution. 
House Raduha, known among the locals as 'pri Medetu', has been welcoming guests ever since 1875. The cooking skills of grandmothers have helped hone the mastery of granddaughters for four generations. You will rarely find such an inspired combination of tradition and modern influences as in House Raduha."

Mangart saddle

Mangart saddle

Hiking around Mangart saddle with great views all around. Mangart is Slovenia’s fourth highest mountain with a very convenient access - the Mangart road (Slovenia’s highest road). We didn't ascend the mountain itself but merely circled around the plateau. Next time we'll surely conquer it.

Emerald Soca Valley

Emerald Soca Valley

This day trip started when Nina purchased two zipline tickets in Bovec, so we figured we might as well make a road trip around these fascinating parts of Slovenia. We started by crossing the border to Italy since we wanted to go back in over the Predil Pass ...

Goriska Brda

We picked up our friends in Ljubljana and drove to Goriska Brda for a lovely yet rainy weekend of good food and wine. We haven't been there before, so Zan and Anamarija showed us around. Goriska Brda is a small hilly region is western Slovenia, mostly cultivated with vineyards and orchards, so it's especially beautiful in spring and autumn ...
