We left Ljubljana this morning for Piran on the Slovenian coast.
The weather here has been overcast and rainy since we arrived in Ljubljana. We are currently sitting in a bus and it is raining outside and quite foggy.
Aparantly the coast is not much better but most afternoons it brightens up so hopefully it will do that today.
The bus ticket cost 12 euro each but when we got to the bus they wanted another 1.30 euro per large bag.
Ljubljana was nice and the old town where we stayed was quite quiet as there was no traffic allowed there - just pedestrians.
We probably would have been happy with just two nights there but we had three.
We read that it is locally known as the Pink Palace due to the fact that it has a pink exterior . The photo above is taken from the steps of the church looking back across the square or circle and the 3 bridges.
Looking at the church at night and during the day from one of the three bridges.
The view from inside of the church – very impressive
We decided that we needed some wine (well I did anyway) so we stopped into the Mercator (shop) and bought a beer for Pam and a cheap wine for me. I have never heard of this wine – The grape is called Vrhunsko Vino ZGP – 13% and cost 3.99 Euro, Pam’s beer cost 0.68 cents.
The wine is very dry but not terrible, quite nice, but probably needs some food.
We were walking home to the hotel and Pam spotted a cream cake – like we had in Lake Bled.
We ordered one to take away and they got a nice plastic tray and then the cost of her cream cake?
$9 NZD for a cream cake!
