|Prior to meeting with the Emporia group in Zagreb, we spent two wonderful days in Bled Slovenia, one of the most beautiful villages in all of Europe. A massage, a pedicure, a boat trip to the island to climb 99 steps to the church and a trip to the castle overlooking the city. Tradition is that the groom carry the bride to the top of the 99 steps on the island. The boats that take you to the island drop you off at the foot of the steps, so you are not going to get to the church atop the island without climbing the steps. Once you reach the chapel, local lore says if you ring the bell three times, you will get your wish. Bled also offered some great food and wine - and their specialty bakery good, Kremsnite or cream cake. Yum!
