As I mentioned before, we didn’t have a car so our experiences with Slovenia’s natural wonders were limited. A very sad thing considering how stunning the country is. Still, we did get to see two incredible places outside of Ljubljana and ... Read more >

Always take the weather with you...

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 9 Jun 2013 | By hannahhackett | Views [649]

What I realised today is that you can be in the most beautiful place but if its grey skies and torrential rain it still seems desolate and miserable! Back to that later as I've got a couple days to fill you in on! On Friday we went wine tasting ... Read more >
