When I first visited the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana in 2013, I wrote this about the city:
“Ljubljana is still relatively undiscovered as a major tourist destination. I doubt it will remain that way for long, though, so go to this place, and go now.”

Ljubljana is a fantastic city; one of my favorite capital cities in all of Europe, in fact (and yes, I’ve visited a lot of them!). I assumed that social media and a growing number of global tourists would undoubtedly transform Ljubljana into a cringey, crowded hotspot before long...

When planning where we wanted to go on our European Adventure with Eurail and STA Travel, we knew there were two countries we 100% wanted to visit - Austria and Hungary. So, we grabbed our Eurail map and looked at what countries connected from these two via rail and Slovenia was the first to jump out at us. We knew nothing about the country, all we saw was a train line running from Vienna to a city called Ljubljana and thought, why not go there? This was one of the best decision we have ever made!

I think we may have found one of Europe's most underrated cities!

Check out our vlog below to see what we got up to during our 24 hours in Ljubljana, and keep scrolling if you would like to read more on what to do during a visit to Ljubljana!

If you are a yoga enthusiast, then you’ll agree that there is nothing more beautiful and relaxing than checking into a yoga retreat in a unique destination. And if you ask us, when it comes to yoga holidays, Costa Rica is just the place to do it. There is nothing quite like practicing yoga in Costa Rica, in the heart of the rainforest or on the beach.

Some retreats combine yoga with other activities, like surfing, detox, meditation, and even new skills like permaculture farming. No matter what you want for your yoga trip, Costa Rica has options for you...

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
