    AROUND SLOVENIA: ŠUNIKOV VODNI GAJ

    In the beginning of the August we spent a week in Posočje, exploring a part of Slovenia we rarely visit. One day we visited beautiful nature park called Šunkov vodni gaj with numerous waterfalls and pools. None of us have been there before and looking back we are asking ourselves how so, because it really blew our minds. You reach the natural park driving through the Lepena valley. As you pass the Lepena camp, a few more kilometres and you come upon a sign “Šunikov vodni gaj”, where you leave the car. Hint: come early because it can get very busy during high tourist season. Luckily we chose foggy day,…

    HEN PARTY TRIP TO ŠTANJEL

    At first let me tell you my hen party did not look like the “usual” hen party. Mostly it is up to individual how they like their hen party to be like, or better put it this way – it is up to their bridesmades and how good they actually know the bride (what does she like, what kind of games she likes to play, is she in for some typical dares and tasks she has to accomplish etc). My hen party was very much in my style and I loved every part of it. We did not have one specific location where the party took place, but we headed…

    EXPLORING KOZJANSKO FOR MY BIRTHDAY

    This year we’ve decided to celebrate my birthday in a bit different way – exploring Kozjansko. As a result of a current pandemic other countires are not as accessible as usual, which gives us the perfect reason to explore our homeland. Kozjansko is a bit far from where we live and we did not want to visit some typical destination for a daily trip like Piran etc. (don’t get me wrong I love Piran and similar places, we just wanted something new). Even though we’ve decided to visit Kozjansko pretty spontaneously and last minute, now looking back, it’s a pretty great daily trip. That’s why I have decided to share…

    CHASING LAST WARM AUTUMN DAYS AT ZELENICA

    Autumn hikes and photos have really become one big hit of Instagram. Everyone I know (also the ones who never hike) went “out of their comfort zone” and embarked on a hunt for golden/yellow – colored larch trees. I mean it’s admirable if other’s photos motivate you so much, you go hiking yourself, but the question remains – did you go for yourself or for that photo to prove others you’ve been there as well? A few of my friends went to the most popular autumn hiking destination in Slovenia – Slemenova Špica. I used to hike there every autumn (and still do -“out of season”) but not for the…

    HIKE TO NANOS HILL (AND PREPARING FOR A TRIP)

    This hike was another very spontaneous decision. After a busy week we were lying in our bed on Friday night, just before falling asleep, when it occured to us – if we sleep in tomorrow, there won’t be much from that day. “Do you want to go somewhere tomorrow?” “You mean, on a trip?” “Sure.” “Well, I am kind of running out of the ideas. I don’t want to go the seaside again, because it gets too crowded on weekends” “Actually, I had something different in mind. Maybe something more active. Want to go for a hike, I was thinking about Nanos?” “Great, Nanos it is!” That’s exactly how we…
