The Julian Alps

While we were traveling in Slovenia everyone recommended us to visit Bohinj lake when we were in this area. This lake was supposed to be as beautiful but with no tourists, so this morning we drove to Lake Bohinj. When we got there we jumped into the cable car that was going to get us to…
