Sparkling Caves and Baby Dragons in Slovenia

Postojna Caves My underground journey began with an open-air train ride. I felt like I was in an Indian Jones movie as I flew through narrow subterranean passages, and past wide open spaces with stalactites hanging like crooked teeth. The train took me 2 kilometers into the Postojna Caves. Although it was summer, the caves were chilly. They maintain a temperature of 8-10 degrees Celsius year round. The air was crisp and fresh as I disembarked the train. Next came a 1.5 kilometer walk, an opportunity to see the bizarre rock formations up...

I suppose the the detour from the freeway was to cut down on the larger, more congested border crossings. As it was, we were pulled over by some unhappy-looking Bosnian police who scowled at my passport. Slovenia is not...

“One more drink,” says the Slovenian hockey player. I mumble an excuse about the lake, it’s not even noon yet. “Lake later. Lake is there all day. One more drink now.” He shoves another full glass of wine into my hand. I slowly take it down while the hockey player dances with Morris, an older gentleman who carries a tiny potted cactus around like it’s his infant grandson. I knew next to nothing about Bled, Slovenia before I came. I decided to make the trip primarily because of the Slovenian mountain village’s fantastic name, and because I had...
