First impressions of Slovenia VANLIFE | Overlanding Around the world drive

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
As we continue driving around the world in our campervan Trudy, we leave Austria and head over the mountains into Slovenia. Country number 6 on our around the world drive and number 22 for TREAD the Globe. What a beautiful country. We find some good wild camping spots, visit Predjama castle (amazing castle built into the cliff and was apparently featured on the Game of Thrones. We then head to the costal town of Piran, which is a must see place if you visit Slovenia.

This is by far the most challenging OVERLANDING VANLIFE Adventure travel series that we have ever done (and possibly on youtube) one that will definitely change us for ever more. Driving around the world is going to be both a physical and mental challenge and one that will test us to the limit.

One thing is for sure this is going to be a road trip that you wont want to miss, the ultimate vanlife road trip. So make sue you click subscribe and the bell to make sure you don's miss an episode.

💬 Comments on the video

I've been to Slovenia a couple of times and loved it, clean and relaxed, polite drivers, locals are pleasant and reserved. I described it to someone as a bit like Italy, but civilised. The capital Ljubljana is a wonderful little quaint city, I've never been to Predjama though, looks amazing. Happy travels!

Predjama Castle (in village Predjama) was not in Game of thrones series, but it was visited by George R.R. Martin who loved it. Perhaps it will inspire his writing? In Postojna (a town close by with a famous cave) there used to be a castle (Adelsberg on Sovič hill) as well, but now there are only some ruins left of it. There is no castle in Piran, those are fortified medieval city walls. The little church at the top of peninsula that you visited has a bell tower that used to act as a lighthouse as well. Fishing industry, though present in Slovenia, is very tiny. There were already some comments about the food and traffic signs.... Good luck!

The switchbacks on your sat-nav reminded me of a family trip to the mountains years ago. Our eldest daughter saw a tangled line on the screen from her car seat in the back and asked worriedly, "How are you gonna do that, Daddy?!" My reply, "I'm just going to do one corner at a time, Sweetheart." ❤

Beautiful video as usual. I love the food “some kind of meat” is my favorite expression. It’s nice when you are an adventurous eater when you travel. 😀
