Swans, Lakes and Castles in Slovenia
We booked accommodation for Bled rather late so we ended up booking a little apartment.
Bled is a very quiet town. Quieter than I imagined it would be.
The first afternoon we walked by the lake and watched the birds swimming around and had an early night.
The next day we caught a bus to Bohinj lake and walked for a few hours. The temperature was a bit warmer than Salzburg so being outside was good. The Bohinj area was seriously pretty.
We tried the traditional Slovenian cream cake which was tasty.
I was bitten by a giant swan.
And I learnt to ride deer thing.
Unfortunately Lucy felt really sick for most of Bled so we had a pretty quiet time. I did a bit of reading and drawing while she recovered.
One morning we woke and it was snowing and everything was frozen, including the entire Bled lake. We went for a walk on it while the locals skated around and we visited the castle on our final day.
The hinge on my camera broke which is depressing as I will no longer be able to take it under water. Its been a really annoying camera (its an Olympus tough) as it struggles to pick up any colour if there is bright light or if its a cloudy day. The battery also only lasts for an hour or so before it dies so I have to be really strategic about when I take photos. But a camera is a camera and atleast I am able to take photos.
