IMG_063_20181130-201354_1 Kurt and Anne Kutay trekking the Julian Alps of Slovenia.
Slovenia is a must-visit sleeper in a hidden corner of Europe. When Anne and I first traveled there with our friends, wine-experts, and culinary co-trip leaders, David and Ruth Arista, we laughed, hiked, rode bikes, dined, sipped and cried our way through this hidden gem of Central Europe.
