After a disappointing visit to Postojna Cave, we hopped back on the motorcycle to head to Predjama Castle. Our timing was rather unfortunate, as the heavens opened up whilst we were en route and we got caught out in a heavy downpour and hail. Thankfully, the castle was only 15 minutes away and we managed to get there unscathed and quickly took shelter in a cafe next to the car park...

Predjama Castle was one of those places I first discovered via Instagram, and after seeing photos of this castle built within a cave mouth it was immediately added to my bucket list. When planning our visit we discovered that Predjama Castle is only a short drive away from Postojna Cave and you can purchase a combination ticket for both. A quick look at TripAdvisor showed positive reviews for Postojna Cave, and the photos on their website were impressive so we decided it would be worthwhile to visit both attractions...

Our Airbnb hosts in Bled gave us some great recommendations on things to do during our stay, but a sunrise hike to Ojstrica was firmly my favourite.

Obviously the view in the morning light is breathtaking, but getting up there earlier allows you to beat the crowds and the summer heat...

It’s been a long time since I took part in a travel linkup, so I thought I’d kick off the year by sharing my 2018 travel wishlist. I don’t have any trips booked yet but I’ve got lots of ideas on where I’d like to go this year. Winter sun in Seville I sometimes find this time of year in London a little difficult to bare. The Christmas festivities are over and the weather is mostly cold and dreary...

Travel Wishlist for 2015

I already have a couple of trips planned for the start of the year but with a bucket list a mile long I’m finding it difficult to narrow down some holiday destinations for 2015. I’ve still got 25 days of annual leave to plan in addition to bank holidays and I intend to make the most of it. Here is a peek at what’s at the top of my wishlist for this year...
