4 green places we like to visit in Ljubljana

We are living in Ljubljana, and since we sold our car in 2015, we've been sticking with our bikes. You don’t need a car if you are living in the capital. When we start craving for nature, we take small trips with bikes. Ones that even Erik can handle on his little vehicle are:

Ljubljana castle 

We like to go to the city center. Because it's usually crowded and hard to avoid walking people, we leave bikes locked and walk up the hill towards the castle. There we look for a dragon, see the view and have a picnic on a meadow in a forest behind the castle. 

If you go on a castle, dress like a Viking!
 

Sava river 

No matter the season, we go to visit farm animals by Sava river. There are horses, sheep, ducks, pigs, goats, etc. Kids like to play on a playground nearby. In the summer when it’s hot, we swim in a river and have a picnic with friends.

Park Tivoli 

When we don’t want to bike far, but we still need to put a foot in a forest, we go to explore park Tivoli. It is a city park, so don’t expect massive forest, but you'll find trees with their fresh smell. There are many playgrounds for kids and a small pond with its inhabitants.

Koseze pond 

It is a nice road to Koseze if you go from the center and you make sure the Tivoli park stays on your left. There is a pond where you can see swans. They have a playfield for kids and a bar nearby. Or you can have a picnic on a meadow near the pond.

If we want to go for a walk out of Ljubljana, we take a city bus (it is only 1,2€ for 90min, for kids it's free) and we drive to the last stop. Many buses are going in different direction. We pick one of them in the center, and we wait to see what we’ll discover at the end of the road. It is fun, and it’s nice. You get to know smaller villages near Ljubljana, and you will always find forest no matter which bus you choose.

One thing I learned over the last couple of years is that stuff doesn’t matter. Clinging to material possessions gives you only a burden. That doesn’t mean I don’t like to have nice stuff around me. It means I learned how to enjoy them while I have them, and being able to let them go when it’s time to do so.

I have been working for myself, or if I am honest, I never had a job for which you have to be all dressed up and shiny. So I never had a real reason to wear clothes or shirts. But I do. Do you want to know why? Because of brains and the way they work.
