I'm not the biggest fan of Budapest, and when I happened to be there on an exceptionally hot Saturday, my desire to leave the city as soon as possible has won over my internal urban explorer. I had a few day trip ideas, but I just went for the easiest one after all. In my defense, I traveled all night to get to Hungary from Armenia.

I was never a cruise person. Well, I'm not much of a beach bum either, but I recently started to realize that I need my vitamins sea and sun more and more, and that my lifestyle of a freelance road-tripper calls for a break once or twice a year. That's when I started researching activities that have never even crossed my mind before.

I knew I would love Ljubljana before I even stepped out of the train that brought me to the city. And it wasn't only because of my pre-trip research (read: browsing pretty images on Pinterest and Instagram and getting overexcited). It was just the way this region makes me feel. To say that I love Central Europe is an understatement. No matter where I live, I only belong to this very part of the world. I've never been to Slovenia before, but it felt a little like homecoming. Thank you, regional identity.
All that said, I still needed to find a place to stay to make me feel that the city loves me back. I found Vila Veselova Hostel and I would love to take a minute of your time to tell you about this cozy mansion right next to Tivoli Park.
