Slovenia is truly a hidden gem within Europe. Nestled between Italy, Austria and Croatia, it is often overlooked and overshadowed by the prevailing neighbouring countries.
The purpose of my trip was to travel throughout Europe during the World Cup, watching a game or two with each country, so France in France, Germany in Germany, Switzerland in… you get the point.
However during the planning stage for this trip, I spoke to a friend who strongly urged me to visit the magnificent Lake Bled. From all the crazy stories he had told me I had to see this place for my self, and my oh my was it special!
