If we have to put a negative into this section, the only thing is the five day walk around the three lakes. This is so minor but here we go. Day two had us walking through very muddy trails which really were unsuitable, we should have returned to our hotel by the way we came. Day four had us walking along a path covered by fallen trees which really needed clearing. At times we thought we would have to turn back.
Thanks for a great experience in Central Europe.

I appreciate Nico asking what my interests are, because he was able to tailor our trip exactly to that. Lidja met us at our hotel, bought us a drink and talked to us a long time about the itinerary. We really appreciated the phone and outlet converters. She was very watchful and responsive the entire trip. Our walking tour of Ljubljana helped us get our bearings of the town, which is the most beautiful capital city I've seen. We enjoyed the trip to and from Idrija because our driver was interesting and gave us a perspective of the different cultures in Slovenia. The mine was also a really good tour. Then we met Midja, who was the nicest driver and really went out of his way to give us the best tour. He took us on a few detours that turned out to be scenic as well as practical. He walked with us to the ticket offices, helped check us into our accommodations, and even accompanied us on some short hikes. We thought Postonja Caves was very touristy but still worth the trip. We absolutely loved Skocjan Caves and would go there again. The Predjama Castle was also awesome, but I would also have liked to take the tour below the castle through the caves there. I was glad Piran was kept on the list, even though it was not on my list, but Piran turned out to be a gem. I would have stayed another day had I known was a sweet place it is. Our rafting trip in Bovec on the Soca River was really fun and memorable. We got in a lot of walking/hiking and Midja took us to see interesting places on the way to and out of Bovec, such as Ravelnic, the trenches from WWI, and Kluza Fortress. Going over the Vrsic Pass with Midja driving was a very nice experience. He stopped several times for us to admire the scenery and stretch. Lake Bled was a bit more busy than we expected, but Midja took us on a wondrous tour on our way to Lake Bohinj. We walked one way along the Vintgar Gorge, and drove through a high plateau and around the lake. He taught us about local food in a restaurant up at Vogel. Our last day was spent biking through some of the most scenic Alpine villages on our way to Radovljica, to experience the Slovenian bees. Our bike tour guide was very considerate and I could have talked with the beekeeper in Selo for hours.
