Slovenian weekend

So, we didn't wait long. A week after our frolicking in the Dolomites, Paolo and Enrico came to Ljubljana and we wandered around Slovenia a bit. jawnbc might probably recognise some of the pictures posted here. I know, I know it sounds corny, but I REALLY like the Gorenjska region of Slovenia; Gorenjska being the mountainous part on the north-west of the country. So the first day consisted of visiting Savica waterfall, lakes Bohinj and Bled and really lovely little gorge: Blejski Vintgar. Had a nice lunch sometimes inbetween, had a nice sweet in the evening and we were good to go for another trip on Sunday.

We decided to go to the south-west part of the inland, fairly known for its Carst stuff - you know, holes in the ground, caves, odd lakes and stuff. Rakov Skocjan is the best place to see all of that and we ended the day with visiting a really odd lake we have here in Slovenia - Cerknica lake; 10x5 km thing thad vanishes every summer and "returns" every autumn.

The easier way to get some more information about all that is to follow those links:

The vanishing lake
Cerknica

So, this was more or less it and I want to start this post with a clear photo-winner of the weekend.
