Ski season 2015/2016 summary

Winter has come to an end and with it most of ski resorts shut their lifts and closed their slopes. Looking back, this ski season was great. Despite I’ve only skied in Switzerland, I’ve been to some amazing places where I enjoyed amazing alpine landscape and had great time at the slopes.

1 year of Slovenian Girl Abroad

Today marks one year since I began my blog. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for a whole year now. It really has flown by! At this occasion, I did a little review of this past year and I would like to share with you my 10 favourite posts/travel memories from the past year of blogging:

  1. ZERMATT WEEKEND GETAWAY

    Weekend getaway to Zermatt was without doubt one of the best trips my husband and I did in the past year. It was perfect getaway. We highly enjoyed Zermatt’s stunning scenery, ideal weather and snow conditions, and the delicious food. One couldn’t wish more from the weekend getaway.

  2. JAPAN. DAY 3: HANGING-OUT WITH SNOW MONKEYS

    Trip to Japan was definitely the highlight of the past year and trip to the Jigokudani Monkey Park was the highlight of that trip. Seeing Japanese Macaques, I saw so many times in the documentaries on television, in person was an experience I will never forget.

  3. COWS OF SWITZERLAND

    Swiss Cows are cool creatures. Do I need to say more?

  4. PREDJAMA CASTLE

    I love visiting heritage sites and no wonder I loved my trip to the stunning Predjama Castle. Touring its interior with interesting audio-guide was great experience. The visit was real treat for me.

  5. 10 THINGS TO DO IN MARIBOR

    When you live abroad for as much time as I do, you start appreciating your home country and your home-town. Writing this post evoked many great memories and reminded me of how awesome is the town I grew up in.

  6. 2015 FIS SKI JUMPING WORLD CUP IN ENGELBERG

    The best sport event I attended this past year was without a doubt FIS SKi Jumping WC event in Engelberg where I met my favourite ski jumper Peter Prevc in person. He and his brother shared the podium and made this event one of the best sports events I’ve ever experienced.

  7. AMAZING BRIENZER ROTHORN


    One of the best hikes of the previous year was a hike to Brienzer Rothorn in Berner Oberland. Although my husband and I didn’t have a clear plan where to hike, we enjoyed our spontaneously chosen paths. The weather was ideal, the views were stunning and we had a great day out.

  8. END OF SKI-SEASON AT MELCHSEE-FRUTT

    If you follow my blog, you’ve probably noticed I love alpine skiing. One of my favourite ski-trips previous year was ski trip to Melchsee-Frutt where we wrapped 2014-15 ski season. Sun, perfectly prepared pistes and stunningly beautiful setting of one of my favourite places in Switzerland made this day a perfect day…

    My trip to Japan was amazing. This post made the list for being the most exciting and overwhelming day we had in Japan.
