In June of 2014, 6 months pregnant with my 4th baby, I set off an an adventure overseas.  This is certainly not one everyone will pop on their family vacation bucket list, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll enjoy peeking into a another culture that you’re probably not very familiar with.

My awesome sister in law is a native of Slovenia, and when she invited me to head back there with her and her two daughters I didn’t hesitate for a single second.  Yes!  The small-world part of this story is that my very own family comes from Slovenia, which is part of former Yugoslavia.  My great grandmother’s family was from a small town very close to where my sister-in-law is from.  Because of that, it’s always been a part of the world that I longed to see, so imagine my surprise when I married my husband and found out that one of my new family members was from there.

eastern europeThe first thing everyone asked when I told them I was going to Slovenia was, “Where the heck is that??”  So there’s a little map.  It’s nestled in between Italy, Austria, Hungary, and Croatia.  Like many European countries, it’s small enough that you can drive around from one country to the next and see quite a bit during one trip.   I don’t want to completely bore you all with a travel log, so I’ll just over a little bit of commentary on some of my favorite sights and you can take a peek at some of the photos going into my scrapbook, enjoy!




  1. This is beautiful! I’ve been thinking about going there for my anniversary next year. What do you recommend doing or seeing?

      So cool! It’s been a few years so I don’t remember a lot of specifics, but definitely explore down town and hit up the coast if you can- the beaches are amazing!
