Someone told me about the FLOATING CASTLE FESTIVAL when I was at the Kranj Fest last week. I was on the fence about going, but on Friday I packed up and took the bus to Sneznik Castle. Camping for only 5 euro + 20 euro for a 2 day all events pass. It’s a weekend of music, puppet shows, comedy juggling, and yep Slovenian Crafted beer. Watch out Portland & Oregon, we’re taking over.
Music is the main focus, there was music all around the castle and with various stages in the woods too. My favorite band from Skofja Loka, THE DREAMS, played. I know the guitar player some and after the show, he brought me beer. I thought you were suppose to buy the artist the beer? I wish I could count how often that happens. I felt like I stepped back in time, there were “hippies” everywhere. I consider myself an old hippy, but we’re talking young hippies.
Here’s some more sights and sounds from the event.
I really love going to events in Slovenia, they’re never packed, shoulder to shoulder. There’s lots of attendees, but no pushing or shoving, just fun.
I’ve been wanting to go to the coast, I’m halfway. Someone suggest riding to Postojna and taking the bus/train, either Koper or back to Ljubljana? The ride to Postojna was nearly car free most of the way.
The first bus/train is to Ljubljana, so there I go. I go back to Ljubljana and will visit the coast soon (tomorrow Aug.2) It’s courtesy to tip the bus driver for putting your bike on board. ( he didn’t charge me, just the tip:), I have no idea why?
Thanks for reading,
