Slovenia, one of Europe’s best kept secrets, has much to offer experienced travelers in search of new horizons. This compact, green, varied and beautiful country was first to declare independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1991. Approximately the size of New Jersey, Slovenia is bordered by Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Italy.
As I write this, we arrived this week in Slovenia by flying from Vancouver BC to Munich. The next leg of our trip took us from Munich to Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital. On the travel app we provide our clients, we received a notification in Vancouver the airline we were flying from Munich, Adria Airlines, had temporarily ceased operations. You may have heard on the news that the oldest tour operator in the world Thomas Cook, collapsed this week. Adria Airline felt the ripple effect. They cancelled many flights due to financial reasons. I was so happy that my office was making all the substitute arrangements for us to get to our final destination while we were in route to Europe. Another reason to use a travel professional.
We ended up flying into Trieste, Italy and took a 75 minute transfer to Ljubljana. The next day we set out it explore this beautiful city.
