It was by sheer luck (and bad timetabling on my part) that we ended up going to Ljubljana, we were meant to go from Venice straight to Lake Bled. However, I had magically missed out a whole day on the itinerary and so we made an unscheduled decision to stay the night. Boy are we glad we did.
Firstly the journey their was stunning, so many beautiful landscapes to feast your eyes upon. Then there had been a mistake in our room booking and we ended up with a 3 bed dorm all to ourselves! When you are staying in hostels this was practically 5 star luxury!
Ljubljana has an old-world gothic feel to it, and because we arrived so late in the day we decided it would be madness to try and fit everything in. Instead we took each other's hand and had a lovely stroll around before hiking (it really is like a hike!) up to the castle to watch the sun set.
A lot of other travellers had taken picnics up the castle and ate as they watched the sun set, such a perfect idea! If we were to ever go back I would definitely do this.
We sat a while reflecting on our trip so far before making our way back down in search of food and drink.
What could have been a disaster on my part turned out to be the best mistake I have ever made.
We would definitely recommend visiting here and don't make our mistake of almost missing it!
Have you had any travelling mishaps?
