summer trip part 2: slovenia

After a couple days at Lake Bohinj, our friends Adam and Gillian, who live in Berlin, met up with us and we headed to our next destination, Lake Bled. We took the scenic drive through the mountains. It ended up being more terrifying than scenic since it was storming and raining cats and dogs the whole time. I’m afraid of heights, so a drive through extremely narrow, twisty turny mountain roads is always a little nerve wracking for me, but this was drive was on a whole other level. Because of the storm, there was debris in the road. We’d go around a curve and suddenly see a huge tree branch in the middle of the road. Another turn and there would be rocks in the road, one or two were even the size of a basketball. I don’t have any pictures of this because I was too busy gripping the door handle expecting the worst.  Thankfully we arrived safely at Lake Bled and enjoyed a lovely day there. We rented rowboats and I realized that I missed my calling as a member of a crew team. Well, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but I really liked rowing, ok??

Before heading down to Croatia, we went on another hike, this time with Adam and Gill. The views on this hike were seriously insane. So breathtaking!
