Lake Bled, in the northwest corner of Slovenia, is a spot where any sign of stress immediately melts away. There is a 3.5 mile path around the lake and a quaint church on an island in the middle reachable only by boat. Bright blue skies and crisp autumn air made for a perfect afternoon visit. We rowed, rowed, rowed our rented boat to the island. Let’s just say the Slovenian Olympic rowing team, training on the other side of the lake, was not in our future. We explored the church and paddled back to terra firma, dry. Postcard worthy lake...check.
