"Refreshing vacations on Velika Planina"
We hired a shepherd's cottage on Velika Planina (Slovenijas Bi Mountain), the cottage itself was inspiering fr our four children.They liked burning fire in the fireplace and baking pancakes. We admired the mountain trails that wind between pastures, visit the mysterious cave, talked to shepherd, we were listining the cow bells,tasting homemade cheese. For us it was wonderful to harvest blueberries and wild strawberries, which are only mature in August. When the weather was not so good, we read stories about white girls from the mountains and play cards. Wonderful, really! We do recomand a cottage, it is very refreshing and it constructed on aciantway that helps to keep failly tgether near the kamin.
