In Tolmin we found the apartment of Teodora Blazetik, which everyone calls Dora. It’s located on 36 Brunov Drevoired Street, and costs 16€ a night per person, breakfast not included. Dora greeted us with homemade cherry filled cookies, and put at our disposal coffee and tea, which we drank in the garden. Dora was a lovely warmhearted woman.
We continued in the direction of Postojna cave and settled inside a tiny apartment which cost us €40 including breakfast. The owner of the place recommended us a restaurant in the main street of Postojna. The sign said “Pizza”, but they served us all kinds of dishes. We chose a mix of meats which was good and not too expensive.
We stopped at the first restaurant after the border, which wasn’t that great, and continued to Bled. We couldn’t find a B&B for a reasonable price, so we moved on to Bohinjska Bela. At first we tried Bovec B&B, but he only had one apartment left at the top floor with a climb of 32 stairs, and it didn’t really suit us. We arrived at Ravnik, house number 64 (www.sobe-ravnik.si), which cost €44 a couple including a great breakfast. The owner, Mojca Ravnik, greeted us with a cup of coffee and cookies. We booked the place for 4 nights.
We circled around the stunning Kotor Bay and spent the night somewhere not far from Herzegovina, by the shores of the bay, in a guest house which cost us €10 per person without any breakfast or television, but with a view that was worth every penny.
10 km before Šibenik we got off the main road to Zalisnucka across from house number A138, we rented an apartment with a yard overlooking a picturesque bay and sea. The entire garden was full of roses and amaryllis blooming in red and pink.
We stopped at Kolašin in a guest house which cost us €30 (including breakfast) for a large and beautiful room overlooking the brown river. A large sign with the word “Rooms” on an orange house led us from the center of town to the guest house. The owner spoke French so I was able to communicate with him.
We continued to Lovran which is 5 km from Opatija and spent the night in a tiny apartment, owned by seasoned Italians who recognized we were from Israel, and wanted €50 for place. It was raining cats and dogs so we all agreed to take it instead of searching on. When the rain stopped we went down to the nearby bay with the beautiful rocks.
