Lake Bled, Slovenia

A quick trip to Lake Bled in the Julian Alps, a gorgeous place, though a bit grey in the transition from winter to spring. In summer it's a huge destination for watersports; in winter it's all about the snowfields. At the beginning of April, it's fairly quiet – I did lots of walking and a bit of climbing too.

A new day, and some more photos from my hotel room balcony

Lovely morning! (Bloody cold though)

Swan fight!

Next: An Easter long weekend in Paris, France…

Bled, the Slovenia’s number one tourist attraction is located in the beautiful and mountainous northwest of

Slovenia. With less than 1-hour drive from Ljubljana and 1.5 hour from Koper it’s easily accessible and

perfect for a half day trip.
