High points: Hiking up a hill beside Lake Bled to admire the aerial view of the lake, island and castle, hanging out in Ljubljana's many cafes and teahouses
Low Points: Two days of rain in Bled cancelled our biking and boating plans, losing our camera, eating a horseburger (a local favorite, but not a Buckley favorite), when Ljubljana was infiltrated with thousands of teenagers in orange t-shirts blowing whistles all afternoon in support of some charitable cause that we could never ascertain, but we did come away with a raging headache.
Local food/flavor: Slovenian cuisine seems to meld elements of its neighboring countries--Italian, Hungarian, Austrian, and Croatian cooking. To be honest, the cuisine of these countries are starting to blend together at this point!
Unique Sights: The Church of the Assumption perched on a tiny island in the middle of Lake Bled, the raging Radovna River cutting through Vintgar Gorge, the sheer number of cafes in Ljubljana (we don't think anyone works in this city, they just hang out at these cool cafes!)
Things we did:
Hiked through sleepy Slovenian towns to reach Vintgar Gorge
Hiked around Lake Bled and the surrounding hills
Hung out at the local coffee shop during the two days of torrential downpours
Walked up a dangerously steep path to reach the Ljubljana Castle
Enjoyed a couple Union's (Slovenia's beer) at a local jazz bar
Ate a darn good meal of Mexican food (although they did serve Nacho Cheese Doritos instead of tortilla chips)
