Slovenia: One of Europe’s Greatest Secrets

I’ve discovered a new favorite destination in Europe and it was a total surprise.

I didn’t expect it. In fact, I didn’t know what to expect.

But, I fell in love with Slovenia even after it declared war on my brand new camera (news on that in a future post). While when it comes to stories and images of Slovenia you hear mostly about Lake Bled and little else, the entire country is one giant spectacular delight. Some of our favorite discoveries were in areas you never hear about and were places we only stumbled on because we randomly drove down a side road to a waterfall flagged on the map, or due to recommendations from a local photographer whose brain I picked while buying a replacement UV filter.

Footage was taken over a week-long road trip exploring Slovenia. Locations included:
Kamniška Bistrica / Kamnik Area
Soca River Valley
Predjama Castle
Lake Bled
Lake Bohinj

The roads in Slovenia were amazing. The drivers were respectful. The countryside is pristine.  Stay tuned and keep an eye out on Flickr as well for photos from the visit.

The music in the video is an original piece, La Solitude, by Maya Haven Traesborg.

      Hi Amber! Definitely, add it to the list, and put it closer to the top than the bottom! Without question somewhere to get to sooner rather than later!
