Lake Bled, Slovenia
During the first week of September, we took a trip to Slovenia. We stayed in the South-Western part of the country, but took a day trip to Lake Bled one day, as Slovenia is a small country. It only took an hour to get to the Lake. (We also went to Skocjan Caves on the trip, but no photos are permitted inside, so I don't have any. The caves were freakin' awesome, though.)
Lake Bled is pretty small, and there is a walkway built all around the lake. So, we walked the whole thing with our family. It took about 2 hours, with lots of stops. I think it's about 4 miles around, but I'm not sure. The kids loved it. We stopped for gelato and Lake Bled Cream Cake.
We took a boat ride over to Bled Island. No motorized boats are allowed on the lake, so everything is by rowboat. This was a large rowboat rowed by a strong man in the back.
