About me

Did you know that Slovenia is just 20,273 km² (7,827 mi2) or about as big as New Jersey? Yep, small in size, but insanely diverse. With 1,300 lakes, 10,000 caves, 352 mountains over 2,000 m (6,562 ft), virgin forests, 46,6 km (29 mi) of coastline, and an island, there is yet one more thing that makes it even more special; it is the only country with the word “love” in its name. So, really, you’ve got to love it!

What’s the best about Slovenia is that everything awesome is just a short drive away. You can swim in Portoroz in the morning, explore Postojna Cave by noon, visit Ljubljana in the afternoon, and hop to Bled for an evening stroll around the lake. Or have an outdoor adventure in the stunning mountains during the day, and go out for a beer later in the evening.

It’s all there, you just need to grasp it. To that end, I’m trying my best: I’ve cycled pretty much everywhere, explored the big and the small caves, swam across practically all the coastline, bathed in numerous lakes and rivers, stood multiple times on the roof of Slovenia, Mt. Triglav, and hiked the highest and smallest mountains on the well-known and the unknown trails.

Yet, I’m just getting started.

However, ever since I have kids, I’ve rediscovered the small hills, the adventure of the local hills (sledding down Šmarna gora), short panoramic hikes, and quick solo ascents in the mountains nearby family sport centers like Mt. Visevnik.

Even though I do most adventures with my family nowadays, there are still days when it’s just me. Me and the great peaks.

I promise there will be lots of those in the future. So, feel welcome to join me off the beaten path to discover adventure amid breathtaking scenery of the Alps, and experience imposing mountains in heart-pounding hikes, backpacking excursions, family trips and some serious adrenalin-pumping climbs.

I’m also on social media, so you can find me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

  1. Slovenia is my favourite of all the countries I visited through Europe during my decade living over there. Such a beautiful place and so diverse for such a small country. I loved everything from the lazy sun soaked coastline through to the capital and across to Lake Bled with it’s surrounding mountains.

    Totally jealous! 🙂
