all photographs by Sebastien Blond

In this new series, we will take a look at places that have yet to become popular tourist destinations, but are certainly deserving of. Slovenia is tucked away between Croatia and Italy, which together receive almost 20 times the amount of tourists each year as Slovenia.

Sebastien Blond has been kind enough to share with us some of his favorite photographs from his time spent in Slovenia, showing us just how much people are missing out on this hidden beauty.

Let us know if the comments if there are other places like this that people need to add to their travel bucket lists!

Lake Bled on a winter morning. Lake Bled is best known for the tiny island in it which has a church. If winter is cold enough, the lake freezes and allows for you to walk to the island.
