I am a strong believer in the quote that reads; Travel is the healthiest addiction. Travelling is one thing that you can spend money on and makes your richer. This is one of the reasons I decided to participate in the #take12trips travel challenge. As part of this challenge, I am sharing my Slovenia Highlights of places I visited and things I did.
Slovenia was the first country I visited when I started this travel challenge back in 2015. A work colleague spoke about Ljubljana and I knew I just had to visit one day. The city did not disappoint, I visited during winter and it was so magical. Since then I have been a few times in various seasons and loved it then too.

Take Twelve Trips – Slovenia Highlights
On my recent trip to Croatia, I decided to take a day trip from Zagreb to Ljubljana. Knowing that Ljubljana is only an hour and a half away from Zagreb I couldn’t miss this opportunity. I have amazing memories of my time in Slovenia and I couldn’t wait to visit again.
Ljubljana holds a special place in my heart and it’s one I am always happy to visit. All my past trips to Slovenia have been to three places; Ljubljana, Bled and Vintgar Gorge. I have been to a few other places but these three are the most frequent.
AUGUST 2018: LJUBLJANA CATHEDRAL I wouldn't necessarily call myself an art enthusiast but I definitely can appreciate great art when I see it. I have been to #ljubljana many times but this was my first ever time entering the #ljubljanacathedral and admiring the impressive art doned inside the church. #traveltheworld #travel #traveller #travelgram #travels #traveldiaries #travelblogger #travelblog #traveladdict #igtravel #neverstopexploring #wanderlust #liveauthentic #lifeofadventure #natgeotravel #welltravelled #iamtb #searchfinddiscover #inspiringtravelpics
I booked my day trip with aviator.co.uk who in collaboration with a local company drove us to Slovenia. The day trip included a visit to the capital of Slovenia, to Lake Bled and if time allowed to Vintgar Gorge. I was excited to visit the green city of Europe again, here is the Slovenia Highlights.
Ljubljana – the heart of Slovenia
No matter how many times I visit Ljubljana I can not seem to get enough of it. Being able to visit the Castle, taking a walk in the city and exploring the market. Everyone seems to focus on only the touristy parts but this city has more to offer than that. Our visit coincided with a festival which offered games and music.
Part of the tour allowed us to explore the city on foot, checked out all the hidden treasures. Tucked into some amazing local foods and made time to people watch. Which I find very therapeutic as it gives us
Lake Bled – a castle with a view
Whilst I do not enjoy the little hike up the hill to the castle, once I get there the view is incredible. I wouldn’t call myself a history buff but I enjoyed reading up about Bled. Another incredible thing is the restaurants with a view overlooking Lake Bled.
Lake Bled is so blue with a mini island that is such an incredible little church. On all my visits I missed out on riding the boat to the ride and touring the little idea. For this trip, I made sure to only focus on riding the boat and exploring the idea. It was more than I had imagined and
No matter how many times I visit Slovenia, I never get tired of it. I am hoping to one day take my partner and my parents as well. It is a place where you can relax, enjoy the culture and is very affordable.
