Most of the time I will be blogging about Bled here. But sometimes I’ll post on

Yesterday cycling (yes, me, cycling) around the hamlets nearby, there were several cars being re-packed for the long drive home. Sunday marks the end of the holiday and if this were a normal holiday we would be waking up at home this morning, not here in Bled.

There was another wonderful thunderstorm last night. After a day of bad weather in Austria and Italy, the mountains could no longer hold back the weather and the overspill into the sunny side of the Alps was dramatic, noisy and entertaining. This is the third thunderstorm in just under a week. Whether it’s hot and sunny, wet and thundery or just bright and cool. like this morning, the weather is not boring.

We are both feeling healthier. Local fresh food from small supermarkets, fantastic salads, bread, fruit. I don’t think we have ever ate so well.

And exercise. Walking mainly. To Bled centre is 25 minutes. I’m cycling or just following paths. Some are too challenging. But I’ll get there. 

And there is so much more to Bled than Lake, Island, Church, Castle, Pletna boats. And you don’t have to look far to find them. Some of the buildings are beautiful/impressive/interesting … oh and there are several ugly hotels, but at least they are in the one place and most of the time you won’t see them.

Coming up this week; to Ljubljana for the day.
