Glamping places in Slovenia – Full list

The last time I wrote a post on glamping, you guys gave me great feedback. In the post I mentioned some glamping places around here in Europe, among them two in Slovenia. But now I decided to dedicate a whole post to glamping places in Slovenia only! This small country, which happens to be my home land, has a lot to offer!

So here it is, glamping in Slovenia: from good to extravagant, cozy to unexpected, from wooden huts to wine barrels!

Full list:

1. Garden Village Bled.

Mentioned in my previous post on the topic, Garden Village Bled undoubtedly is the most “glam” out of all glamping accomodations in Slovenia. Open since June 2014, it offers guests a choice between tree houses, pier tents, glamping tents, and apartments with jacuzzi. Also the most expensive of all options, it will satisfy even the most demanding guests.

2.  Alpine Glamping at Kamp Alpe

In contrast to the previous accommodation, Alpine glamping features very simple wooden huts. They are situated in the middle of the forest to give guests maximum contact with the nature. Like their motto goes, glamorous + camping + Alps = Alpine glamping!

3. Park Idila

As the name reveals, Park Idila is located at an idyllic lake Blosko. Wooden huts/tents are simple yet elegant, and the camp features a restaurant and offers sport activities.

4. Natura Eco Camping Kranjska Gora

This eco camping spot has in its offer glamping tents and hanging tents -first of its kind in Slovenia. These tents are hanging from a tree. Because they are not touching the ground, it is less humid inside them. One such tent can accommodate two adults and two children.

5. Gozdne vile glamping

Something less glamorous and less expensive than Garden Village Bled, but still sophisticated- Gozdne Vile (Forest Villas) are located in Bled and offer everything a glamper wants: comfortable lodging, unspoiled nature, and additional perks like hot tubs (made of wood, of course). Guests can choose their preferred villa and some are situated on the river.

6. Wine barrel village

I saved the most interesting for the end! At Terme Ptuj you can spend the night inside a huge wine barrel! Wine barrels are big enough to accommodate two people and offer the most unique experience. Surrounded by vineyards, you really cannot get closer to feeling the centuries old tradition of wine making.

1st Wedding Anniversary: 7 Gift Ideas

This Sunday, Derek and I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary! It feels strange to say that. I honestly find it hard to believe we have been married for a whole year!! Time just flies by. If you’re not married yet, you will see. Especially the first year is like that -full of change and excitement, adaptation and discoveries.

I have already received a gift from Derek, a dog 🙂 It came early, but a puppy couldn’t wait until October 12 🙂 And I couldn’t be happier with Rooney. Otherwise, The first anniversary traditionally suggests a paper gift. As inspiration, I’m posting some paper gift ideas bellow.

1. A card. If it comes with a gift or is a gift in itself (nothing is sweeter than a romantic note), a card goes well with any anniversary celebration.

2. A (framed) photograph, a huge wall decoration photograph, or even a photo book! If you still don’t have enough wedding pictures around your house, now is the time to change it! If you live in Austria, ifolor. (www.ifolor.at) has a promotion for photo books and other photo products with the code BONUSCARD6. You receive 30% off. It’s valid until 1st of March 2015.

3. A pretty print. If your partner likes art, they will love a print of their favorite artist’s work. I myself love Catherine Campbell’s. She is Australian and makes amazingly beautiful designs. Or if your better half possesses artistic skills, you could frame their artwork and hang it in the hall -imagine the look on their face when they see it!

4. A book. You can’t miss with a good book if your love is a bookworm. Make sure it’s one they haven’t read yet to make it a great surprise. Another idea is to offer a special edition of a book from their favorite author. Even if they have read the book three times already, they will be happy to add this special edition to their bookcase.

5. A journal or a planner. Still a book, but an empty one -to fill it all out with married life’s adventures! Since it’s gift, a journal should be very pretty and a planner good quality. For her: a romantic, embellished, and full of details Daphne’s diary, available at bookstores and online at http://www.daphnesdiary.com. For him: Filofax Pocket Gray Malden. If gray is not his color, they come in browns and blacks too (and many other color for that matter).

6. Magazine subscription. Is he into surfing, motorcycles, computers, or music? Is she a fashionista, is interested in sports, animals, or in beauty? (I know, talking clichés here, but you get my point) A monthly magazine in the mailbox will remind him or her of your thoughtful anniversary gift for a whole year to come.

7. A ticket. What kind of ticket? You decide! It could be a concert of popular or classic music, a ballet show, or even an airplane ticket to somewhere nice and romantic (or cool and adventurous). If you’re on a budget, a train ride can be very old-school romantic. End the ride with a picnic on the countryside or a winetasting. Guaranteed that ticket will not be easily forgotten!

Here were only some of the ideas. And if you like this tradition and find it cool, go for it. It can certainly be fun. I hope these tips help you choose your next gift. Do you have any ideas for the first wedding anniversary?

We have a dog!

Boy it took me long to break the news here! This is hugely due to all the time and attention the little furry ball was getting in the past month. Yes, we got a puppy!!

He is a three-month old whippet (at least was when we got him, now it will soon be four months). We called him Rooney, because we needed to choose something that starts with R. We liked Rooney because it’s short and sweet, and because our puppy loves chasing the ball. I could actually write a whole post on why we decided for this name and not any other -we took into account several recommendations regarding dog naming.

I have wanted a dog for a really long time, pretty much since I was a child, but my life circumstances have never seemed more appropriate than they do know. Derek needed a while to warm up to the idea, but I waited until he was ready. Now, he loves Rooney just as much as I do. The little one stole our hearts right away.

P.S. The pictures above are from when we just got him (left and middle) and the right one after about a week.
