May 28, 2017 - Day 2 Most na Soci, the Tolmin gorges and Soci cruise

Annie wanted to tackle a mountain climb to a look-out she was told about while Bob was determined to get to Tolmin Gorge, Tolmin Museum and the German Ossuary. There were also plans to go on an afternoon river cruise. The compromise was that we did the gorge together then Annie returned to the penzion for some relaxation and the cruise. Bob took a little longer in the gorge before walking back to Tolmin for lunch. Meanwhile, Annie had left the gorge and on her way out noticed a blackboard sign near the entrance advertising a local delicacy...

May 27, 2017 - Day 1 Most na Soci

Breakfast was included in our board so we met up for a latish breakfast. David and Judith got a lift into Tolmin, the local tourist hub, but as Annie & Bob were not ready to go we didn’t hold up proceedings. As a consequence our day’s adventure started with a 6 km walk, which we had intended to do, some of it along the river bank some of it on the side of a narrow road. Tolmin is an unusual town for a tourist centre – for some reason it is difficult to align a map with the layout of the town and there are very few signs to assist tourists...

May 26, 2017 - Lake Bled to Most na Soci

Arranged for Darja to pick us up at 11 to transfer us to Bled Jezero station to start our journey to Most na Soci, Our 11 o’clock departure was a little later than the official departure time and the cleaner arrived about 10:15 but was quite understanding after David charmed her for a while. The train was right on time and we had an interesting and scenic trip to Most na Soci. A couple had their dog on board who loved to run from side to side of the carriage and stick its head out the window, a bit like his master. Our plans on arrival...

Jan 14, 2013 - Slovenia - Cadrg

Hi we went to Cadrg, we had a massive snow ball fight . Nick loved cooking the cheese on the wood stove. I had a go on the sled and nearly crashed into a tree. We had a great lunch in the house that Nona grew up in. Today we woke up to 20 cm of snow in Tolmin and had another snow ball fight. Nick got hit by a snowball and it went all the way down his back :). I had fun playing with all my cousins especially Anze. Have fun at school today, Anze.

Apr 6, 2007 - Bled and meetin family

Got an email from Auntie Carol about Tomaz Urh, a relative in Slovenia. I quickly emailed him to let him know that I am in Slovenia and that it would be great to meet him. Then I headed out to do a day trip to Bled. I asked the bus driver about going to Bled and he didnt speak any english but he sold me a ticket. After what seemed like way too far for Bled I went up to the driver and showed him my ticket to Bled and he started shouting at me in Slovenian. I gathereed that I had missed the stop for Bled. I sat back down and when everyone...

Sep 2, 2006 - Ljubljana - Day trip to Bled

I arrived in Ljubljana by train from Venice and shared a cabin with 5 students from England. Coincidently, they were also staying in the same hostel as I was - it's a small world, there are only 14 beds in the hostel I`m staying in! Today I went with them on a day trip to Bled, which is about 1 1\2 hours north (by bus) of Ljublijana, at the base of the Julian Alps. The photos really paint the picture - the lake and surrounds are beautiful. We spent the day walking around the lake, rowing to the centre island (where there is a church and a...

Aug 13, 2006 - Lake Bled

Our first stop in Slovenia was Lake Bled - and what a welcome to Slovenia it was! Bled is so beautiful, the natural setting is just amazing, a photographers dream. Bled is a 2km long lake, clear blue water, with a church sitting perfectly on a small island in the middle, while a castle looks over the top from a hill above. The campground was perfectly positioned at one end, surrounded by forest & mountains and the walk into town hugged the lake the whole way. There's not an awful lot to do in Bled, it's more of a lovely place to be. But one...

Jul 18, 2006 - Bled, paragliding and ostriches

Spent two days in Bled as an extra stop to break down the train journey to Italy (I'm too stingy to pay for a ferry across the Adriatic!) Turned out to be a great decision to come here as this is a pretty cool place by the Julian (Slovenian) Alps, the scenery is all lush forests, mountains and the impressive lake Bled, it looks very different to anywhere else I've been. Population of 7000 making it a real change from the big cities. My hostel was in an even smaller village out of town, a real peaceful place. There was even an ostrich farm...

Jul 2, 2006 - Julian Alp Tour - SLOVENIA

We left Ljubljana with Herman and together we rode northwest for a 3 day Julian Alp Tour in Mount Triglav (2864m, Slovenia's highest peak) National Park. We rode first to beatiful (and touristy) Bled, a town with a 2km long sub-alpine lake with castle crag and centre island. Outside of town we watched an annual skydiving competition for a couple of hours. We moved on to Bohinj, a valley of quaint meadowland villages with another mountain-skirted lake. We followed the crystal blue Soca river in the Upper Soca Valley to the town of Bovec, a...

Jun 19, 2006 - Ljubljana and Bled, Slovenia

It was a fair bit of work on the public transport system getting from Balatonfured to Ljubljana (Lube - lee - ana, capital of Slovenia), but the train portion was outstanding! We only spent a few hours in the capital, as it was another big city and we have 3 weeks of big cities coming up. So we headed out to Bled, an outdoorsy place that quite a few other tourists also frequent. But we didn't care, it was right on Lake Bled, with a small island in the middle and beautiful mountains surrounding the area. Tomas decides it's a day to explore...

May 20, 2006 - The Vrsic Pass and Lake Bled

After a real carb filled dinner last night I feel ready to make an attempt at the Vrsic Pass. At 1611m it`s one of Slovenia`s highest. The top will be cold and covered in snow but hopefully not snowing today. The first 20km to Trenta is up and down all the way. The neare I get to Trenta the more nervous I get as the mountains appear to loom over me. At Trenta the 9km climb begins and my nerves are not hlped by a sign seemingly indicating 9km of 14% gradient !?! To put this in to perspective Mont Ventoux only ever reached 10-12% at its...
