31 Jul: Falling in love with Slovenia: slow traveling the country from Bela Krajina #BigBerryKolpa

Slovenia was not initially on my bucket list. But, by the time I set foot there, I knew I could fall deeply in love with it. For me, this trip to Slovenia was about to be a new experience in many ways: I was going to Slovenia -for the first time-glamping -first time too- at BigBerry -the recently launched glamping campsite at the Kolpa river-. To sum up to that, I was traveling in Summer, something which I haven’t done in the last 5-6 years, or more. The idea was to relax and slow travel the country, an out of the radar destination right in the Mediterranean. What I found was a country I could feel like home and people I could relate to in many ways. I have told you why you should visit Slovenia before, but let me tell you how I fell in love with it: A warm welcome with a glass of…

22 May: Thinking outside the box: Best airports if you are flying on a budget to Slovenia

It is no secret, I’m flying to Slovenia in just a couple of weeks, and while I already got my tickets, the search was a bit tougher than I’m used to. So I’ve decided to share the “best flight to Slovenia” search. I must admit that I started looking at flights that went directly from A to B (in this case from Madrid to Ljubljana), but that was not an easy or cheap choice. So what could I do? I wasn’t going to accept just the few options a MAD – LJU flight was about to offer. I chose to think outside the box instead and started looking for airports in a radius of 250 km or less. These are the best options I found: a. Flying to Slovenia via Italy: Trieste & Venezia TRS / VCE Flying to Venice’s airports was one of the major options if you want to save on…
