We met Jerneja , Sara and her friendly dog Lisa in a lovely old village Gažon - short car ride from Koper-Capodistria. From the upper part of the village you can admire one of the most scenic views of the Slovenian coast. We went for an easy and short walk to the forest - Sara

Dear Susan thanks for your review. Your comment on the extras is very welcome. In future, we will more specifically highlight what is (not) included, even if it is already entered in the description of the excursion. Have a good time on your long trip around the world. When you come back, your dessert is my treat.
