Europe Trip Highlights Part 3
I'm finally back to continue recapping our amazing Europe trip today! It's been nice to break it up so much because it feels like I'm reliving the trip every time I get to talk about it. We left off in part 2 in Bovec with some incredible excursions and mountain views, and are heading to Lake Bled. If you've ever seen an image of Slovenia (or if you Google it right now), this is the place that you'll see.
This lake sits right by the border of Austria and is a quick bus ride from the capital city of Ljubliana, so it's a very popular day trip. We decided to stay here for a few days though, and I'm really glad that we did! We stayed at the Penzion Berc, which had a great location and was the most charming place we stayed in during this entire trip. This is a family-owned B&B, which started out as a farm and developed into the amazing place that it is today. We had the best hospitality here, along with a delicious breakfast every morning! The location was great too- we were just minutes from the lake and were able to borrow e-bikes for free to get around town.
Once I got hooked in to the parachute with my guide, he let me know that when the wind was right he would tell me to walk, and I just have to walk straight off the mountain! It was the most incredible experience- once you start walking, the parachute fills with air, and you're lifted off the ground and can sit back and relax. From there, we just floated around, getting the most amazing views of the mountains around us. I seriously can't put into words how life changing the experience was- it was the best thing that I've ever done in my life and I want to do it again and again! (if you want to see videos of me taking off, I posted it on Instagram and TikTok!)
After the castle, we stopped for some food at the coolest restaurant called Tavci Vegan Cafe, which was also a tattoo shop. I was prepared to get another tattoo but unfortunately they didn't take walk-ins (I was also trying to convince Dan to get one!). Our food was delicious though, and they also had a great selection of local beers! Next up we explored the area around our hotel more, checking out the alpine coaster and taking the B&B's e-bikes for a ride around town, before getting back and packing up for our next stop. Stay tuned for the big adventure we had next....
