Adventure is just a moment away every day of the week
Walk up the hill from Bled’s town centre on the main road. You are heading towards the Post Office and the public library. You will pass the Okarina restaurant where Paul McCartney once had dinner – vegetarian of course. Okarina is noted for its vegetarian cuisine. Right opposite there is an old green wooden building. Outside there’s a basket which at another time would have been tethered to a balloon floating above the lake and the castle. There are bicycles for hire. The little green building is filled with the stuff of adventures. It attracts your attention because it looks a little out of place, perhaps a little out of time. It belongs here, but did it come from somewhere else? There is nothing like it in Bled.
Here you will meet Domen who runs 3glav Adventures. His family have owned the little building for over 100 years. As you will hear, it’s not from Bled but was moved here by Domen’s grandfather.
I spoke to him online, between my visits to Bled and his global treks. He – often with his family – takes off for months at a time.
