Slovenia...2009 hols

My main trip this year is to Slovenia and I am currently doing some research on where to go...I think I have settled on this route suggested by Lonely Planet. The picture above is Lake Bohinj.

"What Slovenia has in spades is mountains, and they are “just up the road” from Ljubljana.

Ljubljana head north on route no 211. Before Medvode, detour through colourful Skofja Loka.

Head north along route 210 to the historic town of
Kranj and follow the road to Bled, passing through ‘bee town’ Radovljica. Spend the night in picturesque Bled or carry on the quieter and more atmospheric Lake Bohinj.

From either place rejoin the main road and make tracks for the ski centre
Kranjska Gora and the Vrsic Pass in Triglav National Park.

The road down will deposit you in
Primorska’s Soca Valley.

Following the
Soca River will bring you to the activities centre of Bovec and the WW1 battlegrounds of Kobarid. From here follow route no 102 through Tolmin to Idrija.

Ljubljana, via
Logatec and Vrhnika (route no 409), is only 55 km to the northeast."

I think this holiday will be a classic.
