Bohinj & Bled

It was another early morning today as my cousins and I hit the road for Bohinj at 6 am. Our first stop was Trojane for some massively huge donuts with marmalade injected in them. Yum! The view from the restaurant was just as spectacular as the donut itself. Of course being sleepy I had left the phone and the camera in the car so no photos of the donut or the view. After half an hour we were back on the road to our next destination – Bohinj. My first introduction to the park was of low lying clouds  above a lake surrounded by mountains.

We watched para gliders make their way over the mountains and into the valley next to us. Our plan was to wander halfway down the lake and then head back for lunch. Things did not end up going according to plan instead what actually ended up happening was us hiking around the entire lake – 13.5 km worth of trail.

Along the way we found a small town celebrating a festival – specifically a Cow Festival. We didn’t stay long as we were hungry having left our sandwiches in the car so I didn’t find out what actually happens at a cow festival, maybe next time.

Dragging our feet the final few kilometers we finally made it back to the car and were soon on our way to have some pizza before heading to our final destination. We had passed the town of Bled on our way in and I wanted a couple of shots of the town before we went home.

I was very glad we made some time for this place. Weather was definitely on my side with dramatic clouds above the gorgeous views of the old town set precariously on a cliff. We were getting tired after our long day out and we had a three hour drive back home so we headed back to the car leaving this town unexplored, until next time.

    There needs to be a ‘like’ button on this page 🙂 I love the low hanging cloud over Bohinj Lake

    Yes I have to work on getting those in. I thought I had but doesn’t seem to be working.
