Slovenia is a tiny little country that we knew nothing about but were keen to explore. After the humid heat of Italy, it was great to get up into the mountains and lower temperatures, although we still had the occasional dramatic thunderstorm. Slovenia is gorgeous but, let it be said, not campervan friendly. Wild camping is illegal and you are required to book into camp sites to spend the night. We didn´t do this, because it would have wrecked the budget, and twice we were busted by cops in the early hours of the morning. Once we got away with just a warning but the second time we had to pay a fine. But still, the fine was about the same as a night in a campsite so it wasn´t a big deal. And the cops were friendly and polite, just doing their jobs really, we couldn´t even be mad. Highlights include wine tasting in the Vipava Valley and swimming in the aquamarine waters of the Soča River (pronounced Sotcha).
