Slovenia - Skofja Loka and Kranj
Half a day stop in two Slovenian towns on the way to the airport. Well worth the visit.
You can catch a bus to Škofja Loka from Ljubljana. The oldest medieval town in Slovenia. From the bus stop take a walk over the 14th century Capuchin Bridge to the centre. Let yourself guided by the narrow streets. The 13th century Parish Church of St James is not to be missed as well.
From the same drop off point, there is another bus that goes to Kranj, the 4th biggest city of the country. Time only allowed me to go in the old town, but one can easily spend a full day here. Plenty of parks to explore, rich architecture and many restaurants to get a taste of Slovenian cuisine.
There is public transport connecting all these town, but even in summer they're quite rare so make sure to check the time table in advance. If you are in a rush a taxi might be a better option as the airport is quite close.
I hope this short video gave you a taste of Slovenia. Thanks for watching.

Slovenia is without a doubt a gorgeous country with gorgeous towns, beautiful mountains, and so much greenery. From Zagreb, I caught a bus to the small not so touristy town of Novo Mesto, a place I discovered at my former work desk. Here I was welcomed by a couchsurfer who was willing to show me around Novo Mesto town and castles in the surrounding area. In his home, he served me delicious food, local wine, Cviček, and gave me lessons on how to stand and jump on a snowboard.
Since I wanted to avoid paying for a bus and wanted to give hitchhiking a shot again, I hitchhiked to Ljubljana with a friendly local who ended up treating me to a beer. Ljubljana is a beautiful and romantic city with a triple bridge and fortress in the city center. Ljubljana is a big small city that is enjoyable for all kinds of people.
I love train travel, so i took advantage of riding a short train north west to the small town of Skofja Loka. I stayed in a centrally located Airbnb with awesome hosts who showed me around a bit to the beautiful town. It has an old bridge built in the 14th century.
From here, I reunited with my friend from Novo Mesto to utilize those snowboarding skills in the Julian Alps. We took a ride to Bohinj and snowboarded for several hours at Vogel. For the first time, Iwas rusty but in a few hours, I learned how to snowboard. By the way, it was early May and the last day of the season with good snow on the mountain. :)
A short car ride away, my buddy and I parted ways and I spend two days enjoying the gorgeous picturesque town of Bled. I walked around the lake, visited the nearby Vintgary gorge and enjoyed some infamous Bled cake. My next and last stop as well as the northernmost point of my voyage in the Balkans was to the small town of Mojstrana. Here a local in Bled told me about a waterfall I should visit near the town in Triglav National Park. After about an hour an change, I made it to Pericnik waterfall. That concludes the end of that directional voyage only to begin a long voyage along the Adriatic coast of Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, and eventually, Greece. Cheers :)

Slovenia in 2 minutes
Ljubljana is the start of my return to Europe. In October of 2015 I spent two weeks in Iceland and had an incredible time. I had been planning a European trip for a while but I wasn’t really sure where I wanted to go. It wasn’t until I found Alan X El Mundo, a Mexican YouTuber with a channel dedicated to travel. His highlight of Slovenia made me fall in love with the country’s natural beauty. After seeing his series on Slovenia I knew I wanted to drive through Vršič Pass and experience Soča Rocks. This is my adventure throughout Slovenia.
