Balkan Photo Summary – 30 Days

Balkans Route

Going through the Balkans was incredible. Ok – I snuck some European Union in here to – adding Italy and Slovenia to start and ending with a bang in Greece. The region is vibrant – its history, its food, its views! It was a region I’d been dying to visit for a long time, and my 30-day jaunt didn’t do it justice. But fulfilled all 50 reasons I wanted to explore the Region and gave me 1000 reasons to return.

Photo Diary: Artsy Ljubljana

Slovenia - Ljubljana- Art on the bridge

When I arrived in Ljubljana I did not know what to expect. I knew I was headed to a small capital city that every other blog post I’d ever read waxed poetic about. Castles, Bridges, and Dragons were all part of the cities charm. But the thing that captured my enthusiasm was the cities artistic exposure. I had no idea I would meet the Artsy Ljubljana.

Lakes Bohinj & Bled, and their Representative Ducklings

People know about Slovenia because of Bled. They know about the little island with a beautiful castle in the middle. Well, Mojca, my couchsurfing host, took me to Bohinj first. It’s more beautiful, I don’t know why everybody loves Bled so much. We went to both in the same day – two beautiful lakes with two beautiful churches – which did I love more?

Slovenia – Small cities and country side

Slovenia to me was the most welcoming little country. The smaller population led to multiple smaller towns – and to me, small towns represent friendlier people, walkable cities, and charm. Slovenia offered everything. I was staying just outside of Kranj with Mojca. She had a dog – Ishie. Ishie needs his walks so I was fortunate enough to wander around the countryside of Slovenia and being able to hop, skip, jump my way into Kranj for some exploration.

160 Metres Below Slovenia

Underground – 160 Metres to be precise – are hidden the treasures of Slovenia. They are carved out with stalactites hanging from the ceiling and vibrations bouncing off the walls from the rivers rushing through them. A place where no natural sunlight reaches and yet life survives. Yes – these are the caves of Slovenia. And this is my adventure 160 Metres underground in Park Skocjanske Jame.

Ljubljana – I sLOVEnia You

 

Ljubljana – I sLOVEnia you. It is a simple statement – yet it holds so much emotion. Ljubljana is a brilliant capital city that encompasses so much of what makes Slovenia a wonderful country. It has architecture, friendly locals, a street cafe style, and a wonderful downtown to walk through (no cars allowed). I’ve never asked much of cities – but Ljubljana blew my expectations away with its small town punch.
