"Slovenia is a beautiful country, a great variety, from beautiful Lake Bled region and the capital Ljubljana to the beautiful coastal region. "

“We had a most enjoyable week. A very full varied program. Slovenia is a beautiful country, a great variety, from beautiful Lake Bled region and the capital Ljubljana to the beautiful coastal region. In each region we had an opportunity to sample the local cuisine, view the local crafts and see how they were made and off course met with the local beekeepers and learned about beekeeping in their area. The friendship and hospitality that we met everywhere were superb. We are bringing many happy memories back to Ireland of our visit in Slovenia.
