Malta left me in awe

I've been to Malta before, for an 18-30's type holiday, so was excited to visit again, just last weekend, for something more cultural.

Take a break to beautiful Bled, Slovenia

Bled has become increasingly popular in recent years, with its  brochure-friendly panoramas and beautiful scenic views across the lake; welcoming visitors all year round.

I visited in August this year. Peak season. Probably not what I would recommend if you prefer peace, quiet and tranquility, although it is possible to find a few spots to escape the crowds of sunbathing families.

Phill, as an ex-tour guide, has been there many times, so I am pretty sure he's well informed to tell me how different it is in Bled the rest of the year.

Now, after the summer crowds have dissipated, is the perfect time to visit. In the winter months it's a popular place for skiers, so another reason to put it on your bucket list.
