Inspired by Slovenia – a photo essay
Maybe it was the change of seasons and autumn colors greeting me….I’ve forgotten how wonderful the fall season can be, and visiting Slovenia for the first time made it even more special. It really was a glorious experience to visit this country and I’m so happy to be somewhere when the timing was just perfect to enjoy the countryside in all its glory.
I really had no expectations about what is this country would be like, or the food, history or culture…especially the food (what would the food be like, I’m wondering).
Ah, yes I was pleasantly surprised by everything, perhaps the key is really to just go with the flow and not to do to much advance planning and just let it all happen! This is not usually the way that I travel, but for some reason, I didn’t really do that much planning on Slovenia and ….it was nice not to have any expectations and really enjoy the new discoveries and warm weather.
Fall color in all it’s glory!
But really, visiting here during the autumn season was the ultimate of discovering a new environment for the first time, and being blown away by all the landscape and the nature….OMG it really is stunning! All of the brilliant colors is putting me in a pleasant state of mind, curious and wanting to explore every nook and cranny.
It looks fake, but it is real!
Visiting a castle set on a hill – it’s like a fairy tale!
When was the last time you walked through piles of fallen leaves and became a kid again? I forgot how fun a simple act like jumping or kicking up some leaves can be… oh I remember my childhood again, and it was sweet. Escaping to Slovenia’s countryside is a must especially doing all these fun things you can do around Lake Bled.

My travel companion twirled around trees!
Can you tell I’m giddy with excitement, is this what happens when people visit you for the first time, Slovenia? There’s a lot to see out in the country or up in the hills, it’s all stunning and the landscape is breath-taking! It is simple and joyful and yes I really want to explore more of this country.
