On the last weekend of June, we decided together with Vicky to go to the famous lake in Bled to discover what it has to offer apart from the church in the middle of the lake. The plan was to go there in the afternoon, have a beer, go for a swim, have dinner, and eventually find a place where we could set up the hammocks for the night.
When we first got to Bled, stepped off of the bus, and started walking along the lake, I had this genuine feeling that everything here was for tourists (especially those with money).
After having a beer almost as expansive as in Paris, we headed to the other side of the lake to have a swim and get closer to the church. We couldn’t expect the water to be any better: perfect temperature, sky-blue color water, not as crowded as we expected, everything was there for us to have a good time.
The diner was not as great as the water was but at least we had full stomachs for the night, which would help us not feel too cold in the hammocks. Once we were done eating, we decided to go for a walk around the lake so we could find the perfect spot for the night. It actually didn’t take us longer than 3 minutes before we found it. Hidden behind the trees, next to a trail where no one would come during the night, and near the lake.
The next morning, we woke up at 7:00 am after a good night of sleep and decided to go for a coffee. As the restaurant only opened at 10:00 am we decided to hit the trail. After a 30 minutes hike, we reached the view on top of the lake which was, according to the sign, the best view on the lake. And we have to say that we were not disappointed at all.
Our journey in Bled ended around 10:20 when we decided to go on a bus to go back home. Yes, it was short but it was pretty intense and 1 day in Bled is way enough.
