Lake Jasna and why I like to visit it in every season

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Today I decided to write about one of my favourite destinations (and most instagramable places) in Slovenia. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I didn’t know that lake Jasna exist until I went to a trip around that part of Slovenia 3 years ago, and while we were driving from Zelenci to Vršič pass, we saw a beautiful lake with mountains in the background. And yeah, I had no idea what’s the name of the lake. But from then on, I’ve returned to this lake every few months. It’s one of those places that looks great in every season. In the summer, you can go for a quick swim or just enjoy the beautiful nature, and in the winter, you can drink a cup of mulled wine or start a fun snowball fight with your friends.

Winter trip ideas: BLED

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I can’t believe that this is the fifth blogmas post! Time flies by so fast and before we know it, it will be Christmas. Since we already saw the first snow in Slovenia and the temperatures are quite cold, I decided to go on a trip to the beautiful winter wonderland – Bled. I’m sure you’ve heard of it, as it is one of the most famous Slovenian touristic destinations and for a good reason: come on, this place looks like something from a fairy-tale! If you have the opportunity, I would recommend you to visit Bled on a workday. I visited it on Monday and I hardly met anyone on the way around the lake! Everything was so calm an peaceful in comparison to summer and weekends. I didn’t expect that but I was pleasantly surprised :). And so was my boyfriend who hates the crowds 😀 All in all, it was a perfect winter walk. No need for festive music, stands, mulled wine. Just nature…and well, a ”kremšnita” (one of the best Slovenian desserts) is a must :).

Rome in September

Rome for students (or anyone else who wants to travel on a budget and get the best experience)

rome colloseum.JPGI’ve always dreamed of visiting Rome, and since I’ve started working in a museum, even more. And when I found out that Ryanair flies to Rome from Trieste (less than 2 hours away from Ljubljana), I had to book the tickets. Me and my boyfriend found a cozy room in a guesthouse with a shared bathroom and kitchen near the main station, close to the center of the city and the main attractions.

The beautiful Rovinj

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved to visit Croatia in the summer. I love the islands with the clearest water, I love the seaside towns, I love the beautiful nature. This year, I decided to go on a longer vacation than usual. I’ve spend almost two weeks (yeah I know it’s not that long, but for a girl that hasn’t spent more than 5 days at the seaside for the last 10 years, it is) in a camp in Istria, near Novigrad. But I can’t be at one place for too long, I decided to go on a one day trip to a lovely town by the coast, I’ve wanted to visit for a while – Rovinj.

2017 Travel Wishlist

16601907_1090310387744657_7388982468173332927_o

The first month of 2017 is almost over and I’m already thinking about where I would like to travel this year. I would like to say that it’s a realistic wishlist, but it’s actually a product of a daydreaming Sunday. Hopefully, I’ll travel to at least one of these locations, but we’ll see what the time will bring. Even though I would like to just pack my suitcase and go, there are some compromises I have to make with my studies, my job and my wallet. So where do I want to travel to this year (only limited to places I haven’t been to yet – finding extremely cheap tickets to London and spending a few days there has been a constant every year or two :))

Discovering Slovenia

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I’ve travelled a lot during the spring months, so I decided to save some money in the summer and discover the beautiful Slovenian mountain side. Plane tickets will be cheaper in September:). Even though Slovenia is a small country it has a lot to offer and during this trip I found some new favourite spots. My journey started at the national reserve Zelenci, so early that there was almost no one there = extremely early for me.

My sunny trip to London

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I have been on a ˝study break˝ from blogging the last couple of weeks and now I have so many things I want to tell you about!:) Before the exams started, I visited London, probably one of my favourite cities in the world. Why do I love travellling there? Well, maybe I’m lucky, but whenever I visit, it rarely rains. The temperatures are nice and the sun shines. And it’s never too crowded. Yes, there are a lot of people at the underground stations and touristic sights but otherwise, it doesn’t feel like you are always in a crowd. Or maybe it’s just because the people are so polite and always apologize if they bump in to you. It’s just beautiful.
