Destination Diary – Slovenia

Posted By Trav

For a country the size of New Jersey, there is a LOT to see!

Heather and I spent 4 days of our babymoon in Slovenia, and it lived up to all of our expectations and then some.

Delicious food, amazing gelato, and gorgeous drives make this country one that really packs a punch.

Join Heather and I as we go through our trip and share the best food, the best places to visit, and of course my new #1 favorite Gelato in the whole world! Definitely wasn’t expecting that when we decided to go to Slovenia!

    I’ve been thinking about making a trip to eastern Europe for a while now, so when you and Rick Steves both did episodes on Slovenia in the same week I decided to take it as a sign that it’s time to plan that trip and go to Slovenia! Are there any books or blogs about Slovenia that you have read and would recommend?

    1. Trav says:

      @Amanda Mawson – It’s definitely a sign…now you gotta go! I didn’t find any books about Slovenia, and didn’t use many blogs in particular either, so can’t help you there. But if you find a good book, please let us know!

    EPOP- your podcast are the only thing getting me through the pointy-ended last few weeks of university! Can’t wait to travel to Slovenia once I have finished my degree. You guys continually inspire me to travel the world.
    Lots of love from Australia !

    1. Trav says:

      @Cora Be – Awesome to hear, and glad we can help you get through your last few weeks! Slovenia is awesome, and I can guarantee you’ll love it. Although…I can’t wait to return to your home country of Australia. We still have a lot more exploring left to do there.

  3. In the podcast u mentioned an app for traveling as a local what was the name of the app?

    1. Trav says:

      @Sukaina- The app is called Use It. They have maps made by locals for probably 15-20 European cities and Ljubljana is one of them.
