The 2018 Club annual holiday was to Lake Bled in Slovenia, an. excellent water-centric location with a church on the island in the centre of the Lake, and mountains surrounding. The Park Hotel was conveniently located for self-organise activities, on the very edge of the quiet lake (a renowned international Rowing centre with an Olympic Course marked out and frequent regattas, and no motor boats allowed) . The hotel had good food with a smattering of local dishes which required guesswork to identify the contents . There were fascinating excursions to suit all interests – those interested in equinine breeding and shows loved the white Lipica horses both in the stables and strutting in the showplace.
Most travellers were not afraid to try a miniature train ride inside the largest caves in Europe – the Postojanana Caves – the train was followed by walking several kilometres of splendid Stagmites, tites and other colourful formations. The historic buildings of Ljubljana were full of interest, and there was the optional Mt Vogel trip including a cablecar trip – but unfortunately, the clouds covered the top cablecar station.. We had an excellent local guide – maybe the very best. All the newcomers merged in, socialised and communicated, especially at the lighthearted Last Night Rowing Regatta. The holiday was enjoyed by all, due to the real essence of friendship and fellowship, helping one another. Feedback suggested it was amongst the best Probus holidays.
