Dear Slovenia… Sorry I misjudged you.

Ok even though it is ‘Wordless Wednesday’… this Wednesday also needs some words because we only have one night in Slovenia and I need to tell you that I was completely wrong about it.

Going into Slovenia I expected a poor country with lots of concrete and limited beauty… I don’t really know why I expected this… it’s just the image I had when I thought about it… I guess it was my prejudice.  It turns out I could not have been more wrong.

Slovenia… well both Bled and Ljubljana anyway, were beautiful, enchanting places, filled with all the best Europe has to offer, beautiful architecture, cute streets, an abundance of delicious food and a pretty epic castle. It also had the best lights I have seen to date, turning a dark winter into a pretty magical experience. And even though we only got to see the capital (Ljubljana) in the dark, it is on my list of top places… especially given it is the home of the most delicious upgrade to the vanilla slice I have ever tried… the Kremsnita.



Munich is a big place, but when you only have just over half a day there, the best thing to do is pop it on the ‘places I must return to’ and spend your time eating delicious German goodies and hanging out in the best German restaurants you can find… which also means crossing no. 60 off this years list.

So far on our trip, this is the place that has most felt like home… maybe I will have to dig up my year eight German books for our next trip. It is such as beautiful city…
