Slovenia Road Trip Itinerary

Slovenia Road Trip Itinerary: A Complete Guide to 2 Weeks in Slovenia

We can’t praise traveling in Slovenia enough. It’s a country that is profoundly beautiful and pristine. It’s also a country that is mindful and thoughtful about preserving its natural environment. This Slovenia road trip itinerary begins and ends in Ljubljana. From the capital, you’ll head to the lovely town of Piran on the Adriatic Sea. Next, you’ll drive up the Soča Valley and into the heart of the Julian Alps. You’ll explore the beautiful lakes and alpine pastures of Triglav National Park and then drive to the heavenly Logar Valley in the Kamnik Alps, before returning to Ljubljana. If you have less than two weeks, you can definitely compress this itinerary. At the end of this post, we’ve outlined a 10 day Slovenia itinerary and a 7 day Slovenia itinerary.

We recommend following this Slovenia road trip route in late Spring, Summer, or in early Fall.

Driving in Slovenia

If you’re driving into Slovenia from a neighboring country, make sure to purchase a vignette right after you cross the border. You can buy a vignette at any petrol station. If you’re renting a car in Ljubljana, your rental car company will provide this. Often the vignette is included in your contract, though sometimes it isn’t.

In this Slovenia road trip itinerary, we’ve provided a few opportunities to cross into neighboring countries (Italy, Austria) for several hours, in order to see some scenic places. Please confirm with your rental car company, whether that’s possible. You may need to buy a cross-border permit. Note, those are just alternative options. If you want to drive the entire route in Slovenia, you definitely can.

Top Destinations in Slovenia
Slovenia Road Trip Destinations
Slovenia Itinerary: 2 Week Road Trip - Ljubljana Open Kitchen

Day 1: Arrive in Ljubljana

Capital of Slovenia

Every trip to Slovenia ought to start and end in Ljubljana. Slovenia’s capital is an approachable city that is best discovered on foot. As you wander the city’s streets, you’ll notice that Ljubljana is heavily influenced by Viennese and Venetian architecture, resulting in a delightful fusion. To get acquainted with the city center, join a free walking tour.

We love returning to Ljubljana. Many cities in Europe feel like an overwhelming “to-do” list. Ljubljana, by contrast, feels like a “to-be” list. You’ll feel compelled to simply enjoy yourself. For us, that means hopping between wine bars and cafés along the Ljubljanica River, visiting shops, and hiking up to Castle Hill with an ice cream in hand. So, in the name of enjoying yourself, here are our favorite epicurean things to do in Ljubljana, city of dragons.

Open Kitchen

Open Kitchen is a food market that takes place every Friday from mid-March to October. The market features 30 different vendors, including local wine shops, restaurants, and tourist farms. Tip for wine lovers: go to the J&B Vinoteka stand. J&B is a specialty wine shop in Ljubljana that sells natural and orange wines. Unfortunately, the shop isn’t a wine bar (we hope they open one soon!), so this is your chance to savor some of Slovenia’s most mindblowing orange wines. Start with the Sun Drops, 2013 by Vino Suman / Suman Wines.

Opening Hours: 10:00 a.m. – 9 p.m. (Fridays only)
Location: Pogačar Square

Bazilika Bistro

If you’re in the mood for something healthy, head to this lovely café. On weekdays, Bazilika Bistro offers a buffet-style lunch. Your body will thank you. And, if healthy isn’t what you want, they also have an assortment of cakes.

Opening Hours: 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. (Monday – Friday)
Address: Prešernova 15, 1000 Ljubljana

Wine Bar Šuklje

Šuklje is an all-around great wine bar in Ljubljana. To start, they offer exceptional wine flights, including a regional flight featuring wines from the Vipava Valley and Goriška Brda.  Because Šuklje is located on the pedestrian Breg street, you can choose between their sunny outdoor seating area or their elegant interior.

Opening Hours: 9:00 a.m. – Midnight (Monday – Thursday), 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (Friday – Saturday), 9:00 a.m. 4:00 p.m. (Sunday).
Address: Breg 10, 1000 Ljubljana

Stay in Ljubljana

Budget | We’ve stayed in Bed and Breakfast Atticus. Overall, we liked our experience at B&B Atticus. The breakfast was great and the rooms were nicely designed. However, the rooms were not sound-proofed, which was very frustrating.

Mid-Range | Art Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the city center. Rooms are modern and comfortable and breakfast is included in the room rate.

Luxury | Hotel Cubo is a standout hotel in Ljubljana situated in the heart of the city. Rooms are luxuriously furnished and tastefully designed. The hotel has an on-site restaurant and bar. Breakfast is included.

Look for accommodation in Ljubljana.

 
2 weeks in Slovenia road trip itinerary

Day 2: Piran

Ljubljana - Piran

On Day 2 of your two week Slovenia itinerary, you’ll drive 1.5 hours to Piran.

Parking in Piran

Piran is a pedestrian city, so you’ll need to park before entering the town. There are clear road signs directing drivers to the parking structures. We parked in the upper parking lot. The fee structure is 1.70 EUR per hour. You can pay with cash or card. There’s a free bus that connects the parking lot to the town, however, it’s only a 10-15 minute walk, so there’s no need to wait for the bus.

Best Things to Do in Piran

Picture-perfect Piran (Pirano) is a seaside town on the Adriatic Coast. With its Venetian-gothic architecture and coastal charm, Piran will capture your heart in no time at all. After parking, walk down the hill and follow the promenade into town. The walkway will wrap around a small harbor, filled with fishing boats. From here, you’ll see the marvelous pastel-colored Tartini Square. When we arrived, there was a folk festival taking place in the square.

Next, continue the walk along the seaside to the tip of the peninsula, marked by the iconic Our Lady of Health church (Cerkev Marije Zdravja). When you’re hungry, head to Fritolin pri Cantini for lunch. Situated in a delightful 1st May Square tucked away from the sea, this bustling outdoor café serves freshly grilled and fried seafood. We ordered the grilled sea bass and grilled calamari. They were both worth the wait.

After lunch, walk up to bell tower of St. George (2 EUR entrance fee) for sweeping views of Piran. Next, head to the medieval fortress walls for more enchanting views of the city (also 2 EUR entrance fee). Now, it’s time to wander aimlessly through Piran’s maze-like streets. For dinner, head to the seafood restaurant Pri Mari.

Stay in Piran

Each accommodation in Piran handles parking differently. We recommend contacting your hotel in advance, so you know where to park and how to pay.

Budget | Piraneska is a recently renovated guesthouse located near the main square of Piran.

Mid-Range | MEMENTO is an aesthetically-pleasing and tastefully-designed bed and breakfast in Piran. Breakfast is included.

Luxury | Hotel Piran is a seaside-hotel dating back to 1913 and located in the old center of Piran, very close to Tartini Square. Guests have access to a spa and wellness center and an on-site restaurant. But, the real treat is the hotel’s rooftop terrace (during summer). Breakfast is included. Hotel Piran offers a 50% discount on parking in the parking house Fornače, when you pay the parking fee at the hotel reception.

Look for accommodation in Piran.

 
Slovenia Itinerary: 10 Day Road Trip - Tolmin Gorge

Days 3 and 4: Soča Valley

Piran - Kanal - Tolmin Gorge - Kobarid

Day 3 of your Slovenia road trip will take you to the Soča Valley. As you drive north, make sure to visit Kanal ob Soči, a tiny town with riverside houses and a stone bridge. If you’re in need of refreshment, head to Ostarija Matija, next to the Neptune fountain in the middle of town.

After visiting Kanal, continue driving up the Soča Valley. You can make a stop at Tolmin Gorge, which is situated at the southernmost tip of Triglav National Park. If you visit, allow 1.5 hours to walk the circuit path. The entrance fee varies by month (~ 6-8 EUR). To be perfectly candid, this was a nice-to-do, but certainly not a must-do activity.

On Day 4, continue exploring the Soča Valley and the southwestern Julian Alps.

Best Things to do in Kobarid

Continue the drive to Kobarid, a town in the Soča Valley, south of Bovec. We wrote a post about the top things to do in Kobarid, but here’s an overview:

  • Walk to Slap Kozjak
  • Follow the Kobarid Historical Trail to historical monuments and natural sites.
  • Visit the Kobarid Museum to learn about the region’s WWI history.
  • Eat Tolminc Cheese DOP
  • Hike the Koseč Gorge Loop Trail
  • Hike to the Summits of Mount Krn and Krasji vrh in the Julian Alps

Stay Two Nights in Kobarid

Budget | We also recommend staying in Koseč at Tourist Farm Kranjc. Koseč is a small hamlet above Drežnica in the municipality of Kobarid. We’re partial to staying in farms, and Tourist Farm Kranjc is an exemplary example of what a farm stay is all about. The family is extremely welcoming. The home-cooked dinner and the breakfast buffet were exceptional.

Midrange | Hiša Krivopeta offers modern apartments and is located a few minutes outside of Kobarid. If you love nature and a quiet and peaceful place to stay, this is for you.

Luxury | Apartments Pri nas is located in the main town of Kobarid and is the perfect place to relax after a full day of outdoor activities. It features fully equipped kitchens as well as an outdoor hot tub.

Look for accommodation in Kobarid.

 
Slovenia Road Trip Itinerary - Koseška korita, Kobarid

Day 5: Drive to Kranjska Gora

Kobarid - Bovec - Kranjska Gora

After a soul- and belly-filling breakfast at Tourist Farm Kranjc, your road trip continues North. We’ve outlined two fantastic route options to Kranjska Gora.

Drive to Kranjska Gora via Vršič Pass (Option #1)

Before setting off today, make sure that the Vršič Pass is open. You can use the Promet website to find out. Vršič pass is the highest road pass in Slovenia and connects Kranjska Gora with Bovec.

The drive from Kobarid continues to the town of Bovec, through the Trenta Valley, and up to Vršič Pass. If you arrive in Bovec around lunch time, we can heartily recommend Gostišče Sovdat for Soča River trout and grilled calamari.

At Vršič Pass, it’s possible to go on a short day hike to Slemenova Špica, which is a grassy hill and lookout point set amidst the dramatic Julian Alps. The hike should take no more than 3 hours round-trip. You can read more about this hike in our guide to Kranjska Gora.

Drive to Kranjska Gora via Fusine, Italy (Option #2)

Alternatively, it’s possible to circumvent Vršič Pass by driving into Italy. Here’s the route. From Bovec, you’ll drive to Log pod Mangartom and then take the SS54 into Italy.

You may need to purchase a cross-border permit from your rental car company to drive into Italy. Please check. If you opt for this route, you’re in for a big surprise, as this route passes very closely to Laghi di Fusine (Fusine Lakes). Read this post on how to visit Laghi di Fusine for more details. We spent several hours hiking around these spectacular lakes and up to a mountain hut. The backdrop of the lakes is the Mangart massif, which is part of the Julian Alps.

Stay in Kranjska Gora

Budget Youth Hostel Nika is a budget-friendly accommodation in Kranjska Gora. We had a great stay here and were pleasantly surprised by the bountiful breakfast buffet.

Mid-Range | Špik Alpine Wellness Hotel offers several saunas and pools and is the perfect place to stay after hiking around Kranjska Gora. It is located 5 km from Kranjska Gora, in Gozd Martuljek. Go for the mountain view room!

Luxury | Jasna Chalet Resort is a modern, stylish and impeccably-designed hotel located at Lake Jasna.

Look for accommodation in Kranjska Gora.

 
Slovenia Itinerary: 2 Week Road Trip - Lake Jasna, Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Day 6: Kranjska Gora & the Julian Alps

What to Do in Kranjska Gora

Kranjska Gora is an alpine resort town in northwestern Slovenia. With mindblowing views of the Julian Alps, this alpine town has a lot to offer in terms of hiking, cycling, and casual strolling. Read this post on how to spend a day in Kranjska Gora. Here are a few things you can do:

  • Hike to the Martuljek waterfalls
  • Bike to Zelenci
  • Eat Dinner at Milka
  • Walk around Lake Jasna
  • Hike to Slemenova Špica from Vršič pass
  • Hike to Tamar Mountain Hut from Planica

Stay in Kranjska Gora

Pokljukja Plateau, Slovenia Itineary: 10 Day Road Trip

Day 7: Pokljuka Plateau

Kranjska Gora - Gorjuše

Your Slovenia Road Trip continues east to the hidden gem Pokljuka, an alpine plateau located in Triglav National Park, between Bohinj and Bled.

Explore Pokljuka Plateau

Blissfully rural and tucked away from Slovenia’s tourist attractions, Pokljuka is an optimal destination to relax and slow down. There are many ways to enjoy your day in Pokljuka. You can take leisurely walks around the charming high-elevation hamlets of Podjelje and Koprivnik v Bohinju. You can hike to the accessible 2,000 m+ peaks of Debela Peč and Viševnic. Or, you can bike through fairy-tale-like alpine pastures, like Planina Zajamniki.

Learn More: Hidden Wonders of Pokljuka Plateau 

Stay in Gorjuše

Budget | Apartment house Jager offers different apartments depending on your needs.

Midrange/Luxury | We stayed at the tourist farm Ročnjek (Turistična kmetija Ročnjek), which is in Gorjuše, on the edge of Pokljuka Plateau. We loved that it was remote, yet well-connected to Bohinj and Bled. It’s an ideal accommodation for families with children. Our favorite part about staying here was the breakfast and homecooked dinner we were served during our stay.

Look for accommodation in Pokljuka.

 
Slovenia Road Trip Itinerary - Triglav National Park

Days 8 and 9: Lake Bohinj & Triglav National Park

Gorjuše - Ukanc

For the next two days, you’ll discover the majesty of Lake Bohinj and some of our favorite places in Triglav National Park. On a warm summer day, you could spend the whole day swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Bohinj. If you’re feeling up for more hiking (we know you are), here are a few hikes to consider.

Read Next: Best Hikes in the Julian Alps

Lake Bohinj High Alpine Pasture Loop Trail

This hike takes you to fairytale-like alpine pastures in Triglav National Park. The trail begins in Planina Blato, an alpine pasture with herdsmen huts. To reach Planina Blato, drive to Stara Fužina. Note: there’s a 12 EUR toll you have to pay to drive to Blato. Just down the road from the Planina Blato parking area, you’ll see trail signs. We recommend hiking first to Planina v Lazu and then hiking down to Koča na Planini pri Jezeru, before returning to Lake Blato. The whole hike should take 3 – 3.5 hours.

Seven Lakes Valley Hike

The Seven Lakes Valley trail begins at the lodge Planinski dom Savica or mountain hut Koča pri Savici, close to Lake Bohinj. From the hut, you can visit the popular Slap Savica waterfall (3 EUR fee) before making your way to the Triglav Lakes Hut (Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih), 1685 m. It takes 3 hours and 15 minutes to reach the hut. You can have lunch here and make this your final destination. Alternatively, you can continue your journey for another 1-1.5 hours up the valley to lake Veliko jezero (Jezero Ledvicah), 1831 m.

Stay 2 Nights in Ukanc, Lake Bohinj

Budget | Rooms and Apartments Lake Bohinj is a simple, but comfortable accommodation option in Ukanc. In high season there is a minimum stay of 3 nights. Cash only!

Mid-Range | Planinski dom Savica is a great place to stay if you want to hike the Seven Lakes Valley as a day hike (2 nights minimum stay in high season).

Luxury | Hiša Erlah is a perfect choice if you love remote, rustic places with modern conveniences. Breakfast is included.

You can also stay in the town of Stara Fužina in Lake Bohinj.

 
moonhoneytravel_slovenia Hidden Gems - Zgornje Jezersko - Planšarsko jezero

Days 10 and 11: Lake Bled and Zgornje Jezersko

Ukanc (Lake Bohinj) - Lake Bled - Zgornje Jezersko

On Day 10 of your Slovenia road trip, drive to Lake Bled. For days 10 and 11, you have a few options. You can stay in Bled for one night and then head to Zgornje Jezersko for the next night. Or…

If you’re doing this road trip in summer, or early fall, and you’re very keen on hiking, we recommend staying two nights in Jezersko. That way you can spend a full day hiking on this side of the Kamnik Alps. Depending on the snowfall, spring may still be too early for alpine hiking, though you can certainly walk in the valley. Jezersko is very small and isn’t a typical tourist destination. So, choose a lovely place to stay and enjoy the solitude of the mountains.

Visit Lake Bled

Bled is highly touristic, which is why this itinerary doesn’t dwell very long here. That being said, Lake Bled is absolutely enchanting and is highly deserving of its fame. Take a few hours to walk around the lake, rent a boat, or hike up to the Mala Osojnica Viewpoint. And if you’re dying to stay here, there’s room in this itinerary to do so.

Look for accommodation in Lake Bled.

Explore Zgornje Jezersko

Zgornje Jezersko is a small Slovenian village, located very close to the Austrian border. It’s one of the gateways to the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. This peaceful alpine holiday is full of jaw-dropping views, and it’s still a secret. From this small settlement, you can walk to the serene Planšarsko jezero and into the splendid Ravenska kočna valley. The valley is also the trailhead to Češka Koča mountain hut.

Learn more about this hike: Best Hikes in Slovenia 

Where to Stay in Zgornje Jezersko

Budget | We stayed the night at Glamping and B&B Cvet Gora, which was delightful. They have fun “glamping” A-frame huts to sleep in. Showers are communal but very clean. Breakfast is only 5 EUR. The guesthouse is located right on the road, so it’s easy to find.

Mid-Range | Tourist farm Šenkova domačija is a top-rated farm stay in Jezersko celebrated for its hospitality and fabulous location.

Luxury Boutique Hotel Vila Planinka. This dreamy and stylish hotel offers guests comfort, delicious food, and exceptional scenery. Guests have access to a wellness center, outdoor terrace, and an on-site restaurant.

Look for accommodation in Zgornje Jezersko.

 
Slovenia Itinerary: 10 Day Road Trip

Day 12: Drive to Logar Valley

Zgornje Jezersko - Logar Valley

Drive to Logar Valley

We recommend driving to Logar Valley via Paulitsch Pass (Pavlič Pass) in Austria. This route is spectacular as you’ll circuit the Kamnik-Savinja mountains on a narrow mountain road. Please make sure it’s okay to drive this pass through Austria with your rental company.

Logar Valley is a protected nature park. Upon entering, you’ll pay an entrance fee. The fee structure is as follows: motorcycle 5 EUR, car 7 EUR, van 8 EUR, and bus 25 EUR. If you enter Logarska Dolina on foot, or by bicycle, there’s no fee.

Eat Dinner at Penzion kmečka hiša Ojstrica in Logar Valley

Penzion kmečka hiša Ojstrica, located in the middle of Logar Valley, is a perfect place to eat dinner tonight. Not only are the views spectacular from their outdoor terrace, but the food is also very reasonably priced. After dinner, you can walk across the road to Lenar Farm, your accommodation for the next two nights.

Stay in Logar Valley

Mid-Range | Centrally positioned in Logarska Dolina and surrounded by an apple orchard, Lenar Tourist Farm offers unbeatable views of the Kamnik-Savinja mountains and wide-open pastures. Whether you’re lounging in the meadow, looking out your apartment window, or eating breakfast, you’ll feel an indescribable sense of contentment.

Luxury | Hotel Plesnik is an alternative option if you’re looking for a more luxurious stay in Logar Valley. From the hotel’s outdoor natural pool and sun terrace, you can enjoy unobstructed views of the Kamnik Alps. You’ll also have access to a renovated wellness center with an indoor whirlpool, sauna, and rest area. Guests can dine in Hotel Plesnik’s on-site restaurant and bar. Breakfast is included in the room rate.

Look for accommodation in Logar Valley.

 
Solčava Panoramic Road, Slovenia Hidden Gems

Day 13: Logar Valley

What to do in Logar Valley

We decided to end our 2 week Slovenia road trip in Logar Valley (Logarska Dolina), the picture-perfect glacial valley in the heart of Kamnik Alps. Read this post on the best things to do in Logar Valley. Snapshot:

  • Hike to Koča na Klemenči jami (mountain hut)
  • Visit Rinka Waterfall
  • Hike to Frischaufov dom na Okrešlju (mountain hut)
  • Hike to the Kamnik Saddle
  • Walk the Themed trail through the Logar Valley 

What to do around Logar Valley

Logar Valley is one of three alpine valleys in the Solčavsko region of Northern Slovenia. You can also visit the neighboring valleys of Robanov Kov and Matkov Kot. In Robanov Kot, you can hike to the alpine dairy Robanova planina and eat a delicious lunch, or dinner at Tourist Farm Vršnik – Govc. For epic viewpoints of the Kamnik Mountains drive the Solčava panoramic road. 

Stay in Logar Valley

We recommend staying in Lenar Tourist Farm or Hotel Plesnik.

Look for accommodation in Logar Valley.

  • Living with Kati’s Parents in Lockdown (Part 2). See yesterday’s post for Part 1.  Living in the Austrian countryside with Kati’s parents had some huge advantages.  1. I get to master Austrian phrases like “Es ist mir Wurst” (it’s sausage to me), which means “I don’t care/ it doesn’t matter,” and my favorite expletive, “Geh scheissen,” which means “Go take a shit!!” 🙊  2. There are so many adorable childhood photos ⚽️of Kati around the house.  3. Watching Kati’s parents interact really proves that long-lasting, loving relationships do exist. ❤️Kati’s mom’s eyes still sparkle when she looks at Kati’s dad! They tease each other and explode into laughter every day.  4. Countryside living is super peaceful. 🌾We’re surrounded by farmland and vineyards. There’s no noise and hardly any traffic.  5. I get daily insight into why Kati is the way she is: patient, clumsy (breaking things), meticulous (especially with laundry), and unflappable.  6. Kati’s mom has an extensive doTerra collection. For those unfamiliar, doTerra is the Rolls-Royce of essential oils. That means I get complimentary doTerra treatments for sore muscles, insect bites 🦟 , and fatigue.  7. We have so much space. After living out of a backpack for months, it’s amazing to just settle in and use a closet.  Photo: Teno Mountains, Tenerife followed by photos of Kati growing up.
  • Living with Kati’s Austrian Parents in Lockdown.  So, first off, I'm extremely grateful that we have a safe landing place right now. If it weren't for Kati's parents, we'd be homeless.  But OH MY GOODNESS, living with your partner’s parents as an "adult" can be quite the test.  Here’s my life right now 😂  1. Kati's Mom says to me everyday (at least 3 times a day) “Isst du schon wieder??” (Are you eating again?) or “Hast du schon wieder Hunger? (Are you hungry again?) I’m not sure what she’s trying to say. 🍽  2. Kati's Mom also regularly inquires about my digestion. 💩 #pooptalk  3. I don’t understand Kati’s Dad. He speaks an Austrian dialect that probably most Germans wouldn’t even be able to understand. 🇦🇹 So, we can’t communicate and it’s often AWKWARD.  4. Kati’s Mom loves to show us her yoga positions. 🧘‍♀️ She’s been practicing yoga for years and she’s pretty damn good. But, we’ll be cooking dinner, and she’s like: watch me do Sirsasana.  5. Kati’s Dad thinks pants 👖 are optional.  To be continued.  Photo: Anaga Mountains, Tenerife. Finally published a few posts about our time in the Canary Islands > www.moonhoneytravel.com
  • Austria Lockdown Day 12.  As we settle into life in lockdown, I keep thinking about “time.” In some ways, time has stopped, or at least significantly slowed down.  There’s a whole lot we can’t do right now. We can’t go out for dinner. We can’t meet friends. We can’t go to a Therme. We can’t plan future trips.  The funny thing about all these constraints is that it’s creating space for new things… new thoughts, new routines, new activities.  Instead of planning trips and adventures and fantasizing about the future, I’m committed (more than ever) to today, just today.  I’m starting my morning with more intention. I’m taking time to breathe and sit in child's pose. I’m writing without pressure to post. I’m drinking more tea and likely eating way too many Manner Schnitten. And, I’m using my new electric lint remover with a vengeance.  How’s life in lockdown going for you?  Xo

  • How’s everyone doing?  Sabrina here. The last few days have been challenging. I’m so grateful to be healthy and safe right now. But, I’m also exhausted. Seeing our income disappear in a matter of days has been pretty unsettling.  I know lots of you are in the same boat.  Lately, I’ve been inundated with messages on how to stay healthy, active, productive, and creative during this time of self-isolation.  There are tons of helpful resources floating around, but it feels a bit overwhelming. It feels like everyone is telling me how to use this time to become a better version of myself.  And, while I very much want to grow and learn, I’m not loving how so many influencers/brands/businesses are leveraging this crisis to push their product/service forward.  That being said, I’m definitely interested in how you are all staying happy and sane in these chaotic times.  Here are a few things that are helping me right now:  #1 Taking daily walks around my neighborhood.  #2 Listening to @karaloewentheil (Unf*ck Your Brain Podcast) when I’m feeling anxious.  #3 Starting my day with the Miracle Morning by @Hal_elrod.  What are you doing to feel energized and happy?  Xoxo

  • Austria trip planning.  A few months ago, we promised to create an Austria itinerary for you. And, we finally did. We actually created 2 itineraries - a 7 day road trip (link in bio) and a 14 day road trip.  Both routes showcase some of the most beautiful places in the Austrian Alps including the Tennen Mountains, Zillertal Alps, Hohe Tauern National Park and more.  @visitaustria | @moonhoneytravelers | @visittirol
  • The clifftop village of Zambujeira do Mar in Portugal.  This was one of our favorite places along the Rota Vicentina Fisherman’s Trail.  Though driving here is certainly an option, approaching this coastal gem on foot is far more rewarding.  Learn more about this coastal hike on our blog (link in bio).
