A delightful place I'd never really heard anything about.

Well after overnight trains followed by another day of travelling lead me to one of the few places I've ever been which I knew almost nothing about before going. Slovenia and Lake Bled had been strongly recommended to me by a friend so given they were on the way back to Munich it seemed worth a small detour to find out what all the fuss was about.
Other than the fact it took probably two days before I could say Lljublana properly, this was a most delightful place. As with many European cities there was the castle looking over the city, quaint bridges over the river and market stalls alongside. Waffles and ice-cream were also abound.
The day trip out to Lake Bled was one of the most pleasant days of the whole trip. Lake Bled is picturesque, with the church on the island in the middle of the lake one of the loveliest places ever. Ladies - to be rowed out to the island to get married would be like just divine and like a fairy tale. Ice-cream by the lake, swimming in the 'pool' area, being rowed out to the island and walking the perimeter of the lake and discovering new things all the time made for a fairly spectacular day.
