90% of my day revolves around postcards, and yet i speak very little of them on this blog. so today i thought i’d share some of the best postcards i’ve found in slovenia. it’s still too early to judge the ones from berlin, but slovenia has plenty to share! here are some of my favourites (click for bigger):
doesn’t it make you want to visit? you should go! :)
logarska dolina is a glacial alpine valley.
say that slowly, and enjoy the images those three words pop into your head. if you’re picturing an extremely green narrow valley surrounded by big snowy mountains, you’re exactly right.
logarska dolina is picture perfect all year round, and has a little bit of something for everyone: long walks in the valley, lots of waterfalls to see, and also plenty of trails for hiking in the mountains. it’s located in the kamnik-savinja alps, a good 1h30m from ljubljana, but if you can make a day trip and take the time to enjoy it slowly, you won’t regret it.
and the food…! i’ve mentioned it before: wherever you go in slovenia, you can be sure that you’ll find a nice restaurant, a mountain hut or a tourist farm. meet the best mushroom soup we’ve had to date:
we also had štrukli and meat ravioli, but none as impressive as that soup. definitely worth the trip! :)
i found these pictures when tidying up the mac – they’re from last summer, and make me really eager for the coming warm months… so looking forward to them! :)
20 minutes from ljubljana, krvavec is a ski resort by winter, and a pretty quiet place the rest of the year. on clear days, the views of the karavanke mountains are stunning.
the 8-min gondola ride that will take you up there still works during summer at certain hours, so we decided to take my parents there for some hiking when they came to visit last summer. walking on a ski resort in summer feels a bit like crossing an abandoned town in the desert, nobody in sight and the chairlifts waving eerily in the wind…
that day we walked and walked and walked, and then lost track of the trail and almost had to run downhill to catch the last gondola down :P
i’ve recently passed the 100 photos on a girl and her holga – which for someone as disorganised as me, it’s a true feat :)
here are some of my recent favourites, a bit from all over slovenia:
(while posting, i’ve noticed the last 3 photos were taken in borders with other countries. in a country this small, you meet these invisible lines quite often :) )
i love the holga. it’s ultra-light, therefore perfect to carry everywhere on my bag. it doesn’t need batteries, which means less things to remember. it looks old at first glance, but once people touch it and realise it’s made of plastic, nobody takes it seriously. there are only 12 or 16 photos per roll, making you focus on what you want on each single picture. and it’s so simple and stripped of “options” that not much can go wrong.
adjust focus, shoot, advance film.
