What are your plans over Christmas? . . Time is flying by. I’ve gone off radar as I’m in the midst of preparing for lots of changes in the New Year .. but I am hoping to be back on my blog schedule soon (and finally in the Christmas spirit!). Thank you to those who have stuck around, I am really grateful for your support! . . _________ #ifeelslovenia#stayandwander#getoutside#hikingeurope#ladiestraveltribe#visitslovenia#ichoosetowander#autumnscenes#europeantravel#exploringslovenia
‘Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire’- Jennifer Lee . . When I walked the Camino de Santiago earlier this year, many people I met gave the above advice, in some form or another. And it finally clicked after a long time of excuses! Sometimes there is no safety net available, no plan B, and no compromise. Sometimes you just have to stop saying ‘what if’ and let go. Take that first step into the deep end, and see where the adventure takes you, even if it is bloody terrifying and could involve a few ‘oops’ moments along the way. . . We will see where it takes me... . . _______ #caminodesantiago#viveelcamino#burgoscathedral#ichoosetowander#gltlove#hikingtheglobe#caminofrances#starttheadventure#passionpassport
Where have you been inspired to visit thanks to a photograph? . . Whilst researching hikes in Slovenia, I happened across a photo of this hut, which captured my imagination and led to discovering the perfect hike in the Julian Alps. . . Often this area draws comparisons with the Dolomites (also on the bucket list!). But after standing here, with no one around and a view even better than the photo that initially inspired me, I can say these majestic peaks hold their own unique identity. Go go go! . . . _________ #starttheadventure#hikingadventures#julianalps#suitcasetravels#ichoosetowander#triglavnationalpark#passionpassport#choosemountains#ifeelslovenia#sheexplores#hikingtheglobe
Where is your favourite hike? . . This is one of my recent favourites. Steep but short, I somehow managed to miss a turn in the dark, and ended up at the higher viewpoint Mala Ojstrica for sunrise. This is also worth a trip as it is quieter and so beautiful- follow the red markings on the trees to get to the clearing! . . This was my second (successful) attempt at Ojstrica. . . _______ #ifeelslovenia#gltlove#getoutside#hikingtrail#girlslovetravel#exploringslovenia#girlsthatwander#hikemoreworryless#lakebled
A brief break from sharing photos of my recent trip to Slovenia... . . - After a night of dancing to end a day of travelling, it was time to explore Trinidad, one of my final stops in Cuba. It is full of colourful streets, canchánchara cocktails and classic cars. However it is this wall that sticks in my mind. The vibrant yellow made me linger in the heat of the afternoon sun, as the Cuban flag lightly swayed in the gentle breeze and murmured chatter drifted from within. Then someone appeared from behind the flag, breaking my spell: time to move on. - Yellow struck again. For me, its presence often injects life. It’s often a familiar surprise, which paints sunsets, warms streets and marks changing seasons. Here too it left its mark, as a perfect representation of colourful Trinidad and of Cuba; a bold, joyful country full of life, and many surprises. . . ______ #ppexpediayellow#passionpassport#cubatravel@passionpassport
There is no certainty - there is only adventure // Roberto Assagioliz. » » Note to self: when a local describes your route as ‘quite a hike’, it is likely to be the hardest day hike you have ever done. But how will you know unless you try it? That’s all part of the adventure. » » _______________ #choosemountains#slovenianalps#optoutside#ichoosetowander#triglavnationalpark#ifeelslovenia#geotravel#girlsthatwander#mountainscapes
Testing out my new Meindl boots from @cotswoldoutdoor with an epic day hike in the Slovenian Alps. After two ascents, some scrambling and 12 hours of walking later I can say it was probably the hardest day hike I have done, but so worth it. ______________ #myoutdoorstory#ifeelslovenia#slovenianalps#triglavnationalpark#girlsthatwander#gltlove#meindlboots#choosemountains#hikingtheglobe
You could spend many days exploring Bled, but try to factor in some time exploring the rest of amazing Slovenia! . . Lake Bohinj is nearby. Go on one of the many hikes on offer, take the cable car to Mount Vogel, visit Savica waterfall, canoe on the lake, or just jump in... (Although be warned, it’s pretty cold in October time, much colder than Lake Bled) . . . _______________ #igslovenia#bohinjlake#ifeelslovenia#beautifuldestinations#geoslovenija#mylpguide#lppathfinders#starttheadventure
Drone, bird, plane?! No this was taken whilst paragliding! Check out my story for video clips. . . If you’re unsure whether to try it, I’d say go for it. Slovenia is even more beautiful from above. . . Have you ever been paragliding? Where did you do it? I’d love to learn! . . ___________ #ifeelslovenia#paragliding#passionpassport#getoutstayout#wildernessculture#bledslovenia#stayandwander#folkscenery#sloveniaoutdoor
Autumn swims in Lake Bled with a few confused looks from passers by. Slovenia is amazing! With a great dose of everything I love. . . Have you visited?

‘What a glorious greeting the sun gives the mountains’ - John Muir. . . A year since I stood watching the sunrise over Everest. This year I stood once again watching the sunrise over peaks in Slovenia. . . It has been a trip full of exploring and disconnecting... a much needed reminder of what truly matters. See my instagram story for what I have been up to in Slovenia. I will share photos this week. Let me know if you have any questions! . . __________ #himalayangeographic#kalapatthar#mountainscapes#nepal8thwonder#mylpguide
Kilimanjaro hiding behind the passing clouds rolling in for sunset. A rare moment, as at this altitude we were usually walking above them. . . For the past two years I have been solo tripping on my birthday, such as climbing Kilimanjaro, so around this time of year I tend to reflect on recent adventures such as this. . . Have you ever been away on your birthday? What would be your ideal destination? . . Side note: Solo it may have been, but I’ve been really lucky to celebrate with friends I have met whilst away, with a birthday cake even magically appearing at 4410m in Nepal last year... . . __________ #kilimanjaro#machameroute#gltlove#visittanzania#girlsthatwander
