IMG_7320-2

Located just 45 minutes from Slovenia's Capital City Ljubljana is Lake Bled Slovenia. Probably one of the most picturesque places you will ever see - everywhere you look around the lake looks like a whimsical storybook setting. Nominated as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World it is easy to get lost in the beauty of Lake Bled.

I cannot believe we are only a few hours drive away from Slovenia! With a 4 day weekend we decided to go explore the Lake Bled area & are so glad we did! This was a great family friendly area with plenty of things to see and do during the quick break - it was just the right amount of time & we ended up lucky with NO rain even though it was forecasted to rain the entire weekend.

I think my favorite part about Europe (other than absolutely  everything) is that there are castles & cathedrals everywhere you turn and they are truly magnificent. We explored Schönbrunn palace & the Zoo, the amazing Austrian National Library and I couldn't wait to visit Stephansplatz and see if we could tour the catacombs underneath. St. Stephens Cathedral is built on top of two older ... Read the Post
