Bled

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.

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.
