Quick Hello - Slovenia Day 1
I was hoping to send a recap of our Ireland trip before we left for Slovenia, but we miss calculated how much time we had in between flights. Turns out our flight from Ireland didnt arrive in London until nearly 11pm on Saturday, and our flight to Slovenia left at 730am on Sunday. Factor in travel time between our flat and the airport both ways....you can do the math. That left us with a nap in between trips, and no time to share our Ireland vacation with you!
So here we are in Ljubljana, Slovenia. We flew into Venice and picked up our rental car. Brian had a fun time switching from driving a manual car in Ireland on the wrong side of the road, to driving a manual car in Italy/Slovenia on the right side of the road. And you can imagine how well I did trying to figure out the round-abouts in both countries. Oy vei. But we made it here in one piece, and we think the car survived as well.
We had a fantastic time with Danielle and Ed last week when they were staying with us. We had amazing weather in Ireland as well - all three days ended up being sunny! They (and we) lucked out big time! I even think it was warmer there in September then it was when we were there in July! One new place that we went on this trip to Ireland was the Cliffs of Mohar.
They. Are. Amazing.
I cannot wait to share the pictures with you guys! Unfortunately that will have to wait for a couple of weeks.
We leave Ljubljana tomorrow morning and make our way towards Bled and Lake Bohinj. Our two day hike up Mt Triglav is on Thursday and Friday. I hope to have regular updates for you guys on this trip! Hope you had a great weekend!
