    ... in Ljubljana

    July 27, 2016 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Hello to all of you! And welcome to our blog! :)

    In a day our French-Italian adventure begins. This will also be our first home-exchange, well not just first its our first seven home-exchanges we are making on this trip :) and we are very excited to do it! For people unfamiliar with home exchange. We are exchanging homes with like-minded people who want to see Slovenia, so they are coming to our home in Ljubljana and we are going to their homes in France and Italy. We will be writing more about that later on. We wanted to share a map with you so you will have an idea where we will be going and if you have any ideas what to see or experience on our trip please don't be shy and share :).

    Jure and Sanja :)

    Verona

    July 28, 2016 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Perfect day one in wonderful Verona. This city has so many amazing things to offer and I'm not just talking about Juliet and her boobs :). The architecture is amazing. Actually Verona has 3 city levels as they just build above of the old foundation instead of using it like we are used to. We just had great italian food by the river and now we are off to bed as a long drive is ahead of us tomorrow.Read more

    Mont Cenis

    July 29, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We took a detour on our way to Annecy and went through an alpine pass and what a great decision that was. The views were amazing and the road was one of the best I've driven in my life! Spectacular

    Home exchange, house #1

    July 30, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Aaaand we finally made it to France and our very first home exchange in Annecy! First impression overrulled all the fears and not even our expectations can do it justice. The house is stunning and located very close to the center. No need to mention that Thor loves the garden. First night is behind us and we feel great. Our host even left us some home made jam for the breakfast. Superb.Read more

    Annecy

    July 30, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    It seems like we found another romantic city 😍 And this is only the beginning! Canals are especially beautiful at night, with all the lights and the swans swimming around (I know, right!). Annecy seems small because the feeling is so cosy, but it's actually pretty big, as we learned today when so many people came to hang out by the lake and in the park (probably because it's the weekend). There are a lot of boats on the lake which is pretty long. Definitely a must see for anybody passing this area. It would be a shame to miss 'Venice of the France'.Read more

    Gorge Du Fier

    July 31, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We started off our day trip with a visit of a spectacular gorge. The trail leads you through the canyon and you walk 25m above the river (not for the faint hearted). The scenery is amazing with water pouring on the face shaped rocks. The gorge is overlooked by Château de Montrottier which is straight out of a bedtime story.Read more

    Semnoz and trip around lake Annecy

    July 31, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    The second part of the day we drove up the Semnoz which is a popular ski resort and summer sport park with some amazing views of the region. The road is pretty steep so no wonder tour de France goes through here. We had a picnic up in the woods which was very relaxing and then descented back to the lake. We drove around the lake (it's quite big so it took as a while) and stop to take a walk here and there while circling back home.Read more

    Cruseilles, Pont de la Caille

    August 1, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Today we did a large circle north east of Annecy. This was our first stop of the day. Pont de la Caille is a majestic suspension bridge across the canyon. Amazing. You are 150m above the ground if you cross it and you can get pretty dizzy real fast if you look down. Better admire it from a solid ground just like us ☺Read more

    Albertville

    August 1, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    On our way back from Chamonix we stoped in a little sleepy town called Albertville. I call it sleepy because there's no one around (Annecy and Chamonix are filled with tourists) and (unfortunately) you can't get proper food until 7pm so we drove back home.
