Another road trip to Slovenia

This past weekend, we (again) headed South to Slovenia, this time fully enjoying warm and sunny weather and only a sprinkle of rain (a nice and welcome change from our last visit to Slovenia).

Our destination this time was the beautiful coastal town of Piran, about a 5-hour drive from Vienna [read more about our travels to Slovenia here and check the new RSS feed on the right here → for my posts on our community website).

I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

Ah, the blue of the Adriatic Sea...

And, it would have been any old beach vacation if it hadn’t been for this …. our kids fell in love with mussels and could not stop stuffing their little faces with the yummy appetizer that I had ordered for myself (I managed to sneak 2 away unnoticed). Who would have known?

After spending lots of time at the (rocky, not sandy!) beaches, we spent our last morning strolling around the city before heading back home to Vienna. Not a bad weekend!
