We just got back form a great trip in Slovenia. We spent just under a week there. We flew into Vienna and out of Amsterdam (via Vienna) to get home. Slovenia is a great place. Small, friendly people and you can still travel on a budget. It is called “little Europe” because they have a little bit of everything. Mountains, small coast, white water rafting, and several under appreciated wine regions. Just a 3.5 to 4 hour drive from Vienna. I am working on my full brief but if you would like to at least take a look at our pictures head to our Flickr site. I HIGHLY recommend taking a trip there. You can also plan to visit Venice (2.5 hours from the border) and Croatia. This would be a great trip if you had 8-14 days to dedicate.
