Bled, Slovenia

Bled (pronounced Blade) is a lake resort town in Slovenia.  It has a giant lake in the center with a 3 mile walking path around it.  The walk was very pretty.  We climbed the giant hill to the castle and ate some of the desserts which were supposed to be famous.

Caden helped cork and seal the bottle.  Such a good little helper.  Josh and I tested the wine before we bottled it and it wasn’t very good.  Oh well, it was definitely fun to bottle. Next, we ate some of the famous Slovenian desserts.  Take a pass on these.  All four of us, even Caden, didn’t really like either of them.  Cream slice on the left and something chocolate-y with cream on top in the right picture.  Cream in Europe is not whipped cream, there is virtually no sugar in it.

Our hotel in Bled was a lot nicer than the one in Ljubljana.  It even had a bidet.  Caden thought it was a sink.  ewwwwwwwww! Slovenia3 035 That is all from Bled, Slovenia. One more day of vacation left to post.  I’m flying back to Baltimore tomorrow morning.  I hope everyone has a good first day back at work after Memorial Day!
