In Slovenia, we (Kristin, Grandma, Grandpa, ,me) all stayed at a spot just outside of Bled called Reka Hisa. It is a guesthouse ran perfectly by a London couple named Clive and Myrn. Clive is an ex-fashion executive who always had a dream of running a guesthouse and cooking for guests. As a professional chef, he whips up the best meals we have had all trip. We ate 3 courses every night at a big community table with everyone under the roof. The homemade desserts were a favorite among our clan. It was the perfect arrangement, and we will no doubt be back.
The house is right on a clear emerald river world famous for its fly-fishing. The river is filled with trout and some of the biggest salmon in the world. The Huchen Salmon that hunt these rivers grow up to 5 feet long. Clive told me that when you kayak the river, the Huchen will swim with you downriver like dolphins.
