Our next destination was Ljubljana (kinda pronounced “loo-be-yana”). But we made a few stops along the way! First stop was to Jelovica, which is a panel housing manufacturer. They put pieces of house walls together from the outside layer to the inside wall, including the electrical outlets and windows, then the pieces get transported to the building site and assembled together there. It was pretty neat! Here are some pictures:

After we visited Jelovica, we went to a kindergarten that was built by them.
We then visited lake Bled where the glamping resort was!
We then made it safely to our new hostel in Ljubljana, which is surrounded in some neat graffiti displayed below!
(Sorry I did not get a picture of the actual hostel)
While in Switzerland Robert has taken us on a bridge tour of sorts, we’ve seen 6 different bridges now. The first was probably my favorite, it is a wooden suspension bridge that’s about 8 years old, made from Norway Spruce and Larch, and designed by a local designer, Juerg Conzett. The span of the bridge is 62 meters horizontally and 22 meters vertically. Built in 2005.
The second bridge was another wooden bridge, much smaller than the first, but it lead to another large suspension bridge. This one was made from steel and overlooked an awesome swimming hole!
The fourth bridge was actually half in Switzerland, half in Lichtenstein! It was a wooden bridge built from 1871 to 1875, that was recently restored.
The last two bridges were both covered wooden bridges, one built in 1815 renovated in 1955 used glulam, and the other was made in 1992.
