Have had the best afternoon. Went for a drive to Logarska Dolina, a small national park about 90 minutes from Bled. It was a beautifully epic route of twists and turns on a narrow mountain road through trees and fog and trying to avoid the radioactive snails (they were seriously massive). A mad fun drive though was glad not to pass any oncoming cars. Whenever I got to an open space I could see the tendrils of fog reaching into all the nooks and crannies of the mountains.
Rounding the corner to Logarska Dolina I was hit with the snow capped rocky mountains at the far end of the valley, low clouds drifting about across the top. A short walk took me to Slap Rinka, a 90m high waterfall. Naturally I took the path right up to the base of the falls and got absolutely drenched by the mix of rain and spray. Couldn’t stop smiling, felt like a little kid. Especially when I looked up and all the adults were watching me from a little hut, undercover from the rain. Turns out the little hut had some blueberry schnapps, what better way to enjoy the amazing view! The lovely lady even topped me up for free and left me with a souvenir shot glass and magnet. I suspect she could tell how much I loved the place. Pretty strong stuff that schnapps, I started feeling quite reflective sitting there in that beautiful spot.
I have no doubt that this valley is beautiful in the sunlight, though it was stunning in the rain and fog. So. Next time it’s raining and you are tempted to just sit inside and stay dry, go on a hike instead. *first photo taken through the bottom of my shot glass*
