The coldest river on earth (dixit Febe…)

Watersports on Soca river. One of the first things I saw when researching Slovenia was a river, with a colour blue so deep that in my mind it had to be photoshopped. It soon became thé bucket list item for Slovenia for me. I wanted to discover if it was really that blue. Originally we …

A beginner’s guide to bearspotting

One of the observation huts.  Spotting wildlife is something that is high on our bucket list. We are both animal lovers and to see an animal in its natural environment: it’s an experience nothing much can top. We’ve both had our share of wildlife encounters: from a herd of wild horses in Sardegna, over a …

I can’t say we’ve visited many caves during our travels, but those in Han-sur-Lesse are really worth a visit! In retrospect, I also remember that, in …

Where to stay in Slovenia

Slovenia isn’t a big country. From just about anywhere in Slovenia, you can reach all the sights within a two hours drive. That means you could basically stay in one spot your whole holiday. We decided not to, though. Since we were traveling with our 5 year old, a two hours drive one way is …

The very best of beautiful Bohinj…

…according to our experiences, that is. Only 30 km away from its more touristy neighbour, Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj is much more than only a swim-inviting waterbody surrounded by picturesque Alpine mountains. It’s a popular spot with locals, whether they come for a refreshing swim or a (probably exhausting) climb up the slopes of the …
