Lake Bled, Slovenia

TweetSlovenia totally caught me off guard.  If I am honest, Slovenia wasn’t anywhere near the top of my list of “places to visit”.  In fact, I don’t think it was on my “list of places” to visit at all.  I think that was because I didn’t realize the beauty she had within her until we decided…
