    Day 9 continued - At Homestead Kekec

    June 26, 2016 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The owners of Homestead Kekec, Mitja (who was one of the best climbers in Slovenia in his youth) and Joži (who sailed around the world over 3 years) eventually settled here in 2001 and have lovingly restored the original farmhouse and surrounding buildings. Mitja is also a winemaker (has his vineyards near Maribor) and an incredible chef. We sat in their open air restaurant for dinner, marveled at the dramatic alpine views all around us, drank Mitja’s wine and played with their dog, Lam (who steals people’s coffee if you’re not looking!). They say Slovenia is known for the 3 C’s - churches, castles and caves. I’m going to add the 3 W’s - wine, waterfalls and windy roads - as you’ll see from our next post!Read more
