I Love food, and I love eating out, and I am lucky that most of my friends enjoy food as much, which makes each trip also an amazing gastronomic experience.
A hike, crystal clear blue waters and a waterfall, this seem to be great ingredients for a great day trip from Ljubljana. "The 1.6 km long Vintgar gorge carves its way through the vertical rocks of the Hom and Bort hills and is graced by the Radovna with its waterfalls, pools and rapids [...] The Gorge was discovered by Jakob Zumer, the Major of Gorje, and the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer in 1891. [...] To one interpretation, the name Vintgar originates from German Weingarten (the vineyards in the nearby Podhom), whilst the other interpretation says that the gorge section reminds on the wine glass."

Only 45 min away from Ljubljana, Bled is a wonderful day trip any time of the year. You can take a walk around the lake, climb to the caste or take a boat to the island.
When we decided where to go for our New Years holiday we did not know what to expect from Slovenia. I must say that all reviews and posts I read were full of positive thoughts so as days were getting closer to the trip I was getting more and more excited, and the expectations were fully met!. Slovenia is an absolutely amazing country which you should definitely visit.
