Lake Bohinj, Mount Vogel, Lake Bled, and a wander up to the castle in Ljubljana

We decided to head North from Ljubljana for a road trip and our first destination was the beautiful Lake Bohinj.

In order to better appreciate the landscape we took a gondola up Mount Vogel (with lots of others crammed in). 

The view from the top was very majestic looking down to Lake Bohinj and across the lovely mountains.

Up the ski slopes (there was definitely no snow) but I did get a selfie with a goat. 

Lake Bled is very touristy and we couldn't get a park in town so headed slightly out of the centre and got a great table at a restaurant on the waterfront.

After lunch we went for a small wander along the waterfront here we got some lovely views of the castle on the hill. We were initially going to do a long drive in this area through the Vršič Pass, which is apparently very scenic, but decided it would be a bit rushed so we headed back into Ljubljana. 

Late afternoon I walked up to the castle in Ljubljana and Jane took the cable car up. The majority of the castle is free to access. It is a great place to wander around and enjoy the vista over the city. 

Next... Postojna Caves, Lipica Stud Farm and a Wine Tasting
