  1. I have to say, your photos are ridiculously good! So beautifully composed and more original than the usual travel photos. For example, I love that your photo of Lake Bled at sunrise isn’t taken from the water’s edge – it’s so much more interesting to have the context, to see where you’re seeing that view from. Seeing your photos of Slovenia and reading your commentary has inspired my travel planning far more than anything else I’ve seen about Slovenia.

    1. Wow, Kate! Talk about the most flattering comment I’ve ever received! You are too kind! Slovenia is really a stunning and unique country. I’m glad you are considering visiting. My job is done here ; )

  2. Thank you for sharing that wonderful experience and tips with us. I would like to rent a car while in Slovenia. I want to know if you have to pay high fees for the car insurance even after you rented it online. Thank you in advance

    1. I hope you found my tips helpful! I was covered through my travel credit card. If you don’t have that kind of perk on your credit card, you might want to look into paying the fees through the rental car company or traveler’s insurance. It just depends on your preference, so I can’t really give advice! I know you have to have an international driver’s license. I believe you can get one from AAA quite easily. Good luck!

  3. Hi,

    Care to share which company you rent the car from? You rent a car in Italy but u depart out from Solvenia?

    Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Raihan, We used Budget. They were much more expensive than other brands, but they were the only ones that allowed dogs, had an automatic and let us take the car into another country. We rented the car out of the Trieste airport, drove into Slovenia and then returned it back to Trieste. I’m a big fan of booking through 🙂

  4. My daughter and I are planning a trip to Slovenia and Croatia October 6-20. It seems you were there about that same time period. Can you give us a hint as to what the temps will be and what kinds of clothes to pack? Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I will save this to my Pinterest account!

    1. Hi Sharon,
      That is right around the time we went! We were very lucky and enjoyed wonderful weather. I wore jeans and a heavy sweater, but needed a light coat occasionally. I brought booties and a scarf too. To get weather updates, I check AccuWeather a few times before a trip. You guys will have a special time for sure!

  5. Awww, so beautiful! I lived in Slovenia for almost 2 years and it never ceased to amaze me. Glad you had the chance to do so much!!

  6. Hi Scarlett,

    I love the way you wrote about your stay in Slovenija, very informative but not boring at all. It’s gonna be a good basis for our trip to Slovenija in May. We might add the Soca Valley to our itinerary, but you included everything else I wanted to go and see.

    Thank you! 🙂
