Slovenia is one of the best kept travel secrets in the world; charming, green, and well kept. This is a photo of an iconic church on a small island in Lake Bled, and it is one of the spots that make all the hassle and uncertainty of travel worthwhile. Slovenia and Lake Bled were recommended to me by Peter Casey here at WBZ. Peter, you were sooo right. I thank you.
I actually hitch-hiked here with a guy I met on the train. The first car that we saw picked us up and took us all the way. That would not happen in the United States.
