We have traditionally spent a few days abroad every summer with the whole family. Last year we were in Pärnu and Kuressaare in Estonia, and this year we found ourselves in Slovenia.
The flights from Helsinki to Ljubljana were surprisingly inexpensive on Finnair, around 250 euros per adult and a little less per child.
As we are a family of five, accommodating everyone in a hotel is sometimes quite cumbersome and recently we have been looking for apartments instead. And it paid of in this trip, we found a really gorgeous apartment next to the old town. Two bedrooms, big living room and kitchen, and quite a spacious bathroom — we had plenty of space to spare.
