Hiking at Triglav NP: Pokljuka to Dom Planicka
The first section of the hike is thru a secular pine forest - not very scenic but fortunately not very long either. When we come out of the forest there's a wide green valley in front of us - we follow it - go past it - and then enter another short stretch of forest. At the end of it we catch our first sight of Mount Triglav and the mountain hut where we're supposed to spend the night. It looks like it's precariously placed on the rocky face of the mountain - and we're seriously wondering how we'll make it up there. Soon we reach the mountain hut where we had planned to stop for lunch. After lunch we rest for about an hour and check the map: we are correct but we fail to see where the trail will lead us... the final mountain hut still looks placed dangerously on the rock and we're no climbers really. After a break at a mountain hut the trail starts off flat and it finally becomes quite narrow.. so it's best to stop laughing and horsing around, and watch our step a little. Finally we reach the base of the wall that would lead us the the mountain hut - and it's not as bad as it seemed from the distance. The path is narrow but only at times exposed - and the 2 passages with fixed ropes are not difficult at all. Eventually, though slowly, we reach the Planicka Hut.
Equipment: hiking boots and water.
Swimming in Lake Bled
Swimming in clear blue waters next to a picturesque island with an ancient castle towering nearby. Just lovely!

Around the lake - part 2
There are a lot of ducks on Bled lake. They're not afraid to come on the beach and take the food from people. On sunny days they're cathing sunshines in the tree branches.
Around the lake - part 1
On the way around the lake you can admire the nature and it's wonders. I passed by this tree which is very ill because it has a lot od cancer tumors on the branches.
When I was in Bled, they were holding a very large rowing competition, and international one actually. It was pretty cool to watch, and maybe you'll be lucky to see one yourself.
