So this country is far too beautiful to be wasted on just 2 million people. Therefore, it should be visited by everybody.

Ljubljana is lovely. A small capital full of cafes, a lovely pedestrian-only downtown, and the apartment of our friends Drea and Joe (and their son Cody).

Everything in Slovenia is about a 40 minute drive away. As such, in 3 days we explored the capital, went north to Lake Bled (pictured) and Lake Bohinj in the Julian Alps.

And went South to Lipica to see the horses, and to lunch in Piran, a postcard beautiful town on the Adriatic. Joe, Drea and Cody were great hosts, but I think we (well, Jack) put the fear of god into Joe and Drea about the day Cody starts to walk.

Jack doesn't seem to have an issue with heights. The funicular from the hilltop castle was all glass, affording a view of the city as we descended.
