The area offers opportunities for awesomely scenic cycling, hiking, rafting, kayaking, zip lining, golfing, and of course sight-seeing.

    I would love to go if there was another single non-smoking woman who would like to share a room with me.

    Sue, Dennis or John,
    I just joined the group today. Two questions: is it too late to sign up, and I am a flight attendant, so I don't need the airfare/tickets. Can I still do the trip w/o airfare? I would meet you all at the hotel. If so, can you quote me a price?

      Mimi from what I know there's 3 spots left & according to the flyer land only is $850. You can find the flyer in the files section of this website by clicking the far right top button. Sorry but I don't remember the name of the button, but files is in the drop down menu.

    There are now 22 people signed up. So if people are still on the fence, I kindly recommend sending in your money. There is room for only 30 people.

    Not joining since I've already been there. Slovenia is wonderful! Some info: check out Joze Plecnik bldgs in Llubljana-wonderful, unique architecture; consider a guided walking tour of city. Buses from Bled are convenient for visiting other areas.
