Everything We Needed

Before we arrived in Bled, we were slightly concerned that everything in the tiny town would be closed for the season. In the end, it didn't matter. Though pretty much everything was open, we didn't spend much time in the town itself. Instead, we focused on the natural world around us. Our first morning we awoke to a brilliant sunrise from our farmhouse balcony, watching it light up the snowy mountains in the distance. Whether we were relaxing on the farm, strolling around Lake Bled with its magnificent island, or walking through a silent wood over freshly fallen snow, the whole trip resonated with a sense of calm and peacefulness that was befitting the holiday season.

As an armchair voyageur, this trip's my favorite. JM
