Bled is a super popular tourist town on a tiny, lovely lake.
I had arrived at the hostel in Ljubljana at 10pm. Next morning by 9am I had joined a group headed for Bled.
It’s an adventure tourism mecca: rafting, canyoning, cycling, rock climbing, mountain climbing. I watched scuba divers climb into the lake first thing in the morning.
We had 2 cars and one motor bike. Fellow travellers from the U.K., California, Belgium, France and Singapore. One reason why I like hostels so much better than hotels.
I paid for my ride in beer. Standard hostel currency.
We circumambulated the lake. Visited the “castle“. Then drove off to hike Vintgar Gorge.
An excellent day was punctuated by this sunset.
Don’t forget your camera.
At dinner we met two guys from Zurich. One hoped to climb Triglav 2864m. With guide that costs about 200€. It’s tough to get an alpine hut booking during high season so he came in October.
I asked for a traditional Bled meal. Mostly meat.
