"We were in Tolmin last summer. I was exhausted from work. I only had one week of vacation. I didn't think I will be okay afterwards. But I was like reborn after those five days. Sons were thrilled. Water adventures, hikes... Nice people and wonderful nature. Thank you so much."

I love to travel, but I realised I don't know my own country. I went to the western part of Slovenia with my boyfriend. We started our discovering in Tolmin. Friend told me about this local guide. I called and we stayed. First day we went to the spring of Tolminka, ate frika in Čadrg. OMG I still can't believe potatoe can be that good.
