Slovenia: Trip to Bled with Roundabout Travel

When I found out that Bled (you know the place with the island in the middle of the lake) was only 45 minutes from Ljubljana I became obsessed with visiting it during our trip. We looked into a number of options regarding how we would get there – renting a car seemed a bit over the top as we would only need it for that one day plus we didn’t know how to get there and neither of us have driven on the right before.

We love beautiful places but as the saying goes ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ so we were eager to visit and check it out for ourselves. Whilst planning our trip we came into contact with some of the friendliest people ever, it seemed like nothing was too much trouble. We also ‘met’ so many other bloggers who couldn’t sing Ljubljana’s praises highly enough. We tried not to build…
