With its 20 square kilometers and 2 million inhabitants, Slovenia remains often below the radar for tourists. Did you know that this small country has ski resorts, coastal towns and world-renowned caves? After my 4 days visit, I am truly convinced that Slovenia has something to offer to any type of traveller.

I can hear trees rustling and I feel the wind playing with my hair when climb the narrow cobbled road up to the gate. It’s a quiet (late) afternoon in June and most of the tourists and visitors already left. As I peer down at the Predjama village and its surroundings, I am in awe of the green colors, lightening up at every sunburst.

Lisbon is one of my favorite travel destinations in Europe. Not only because of its beautiful architecture and great food but mostly because of the amazing vibe that runs through this city. The weather is great, the people are nice and you can easily get lost in its narrow cobblestone streets.
