Hotel Park – Ljubljana, Slovenia

Hotel Park - Ljiubljana, Slovenia

In 2016 Ljubljana, Slovenia was named Europe’s Green Capital. In the middle of the green capital, surrounded by parks, is the city’s greenest hotel.

The Day I Slid Down a Waterfall: Canyoning in Slovenia

Canyoning in Slovenia

Twelve feet doesn’t seem like that much does it? It’s the width of my living room. Twice the height of my last date. Four metres. Sounds so small until you’re standing at the top of a waterfall and someone is telling you to go ahead and jump into the pool below. This is canyoning in Slovenia.

Craft Beer Attraction aims to change that beer tasting cliche.

I admit, I mainly went to check out the beaches that I’d heard about on the Kittiwake Coast.

It’s definitely something you need to experience for yourself.
