|Church on an island in the middle of Lake Bled|
I promised the Sister and B-I-L that we would do a segway tour of Lake Bled. The segway tours are organized through an agency named 3glav Adventures (named after the tallest mountain in Slovenia, nearby Triglav). 3glav was supposed to be closed today. But we got there when someone was there. And it was supposed to be an off-day for the segway tour guide Jakob. But he was willing to lead a tour that would just be the three of us. We were to meet Jakob back at the 3glav offices at 3:00 p.m., which gave us some time to walk around the Lake, visit the Castle, and eat a cream cake.
Bled Lake is amazingly beautiful.

Let's have a look inside, shall we?

|Very interesting Last Supper painting. It's easy to tell which one is Judas.|
(Clue: He's the one with devil horns and no halo.)

And I washed it down with a Union Radler:
Whoops. Look at the time. It's almost 3:00 p.m. Time to meet the Segway tour guy.
