May Dreaming

I'm really ready for a spring break! I will be taking two weeks off in May and packing my bags for a trip to Central Europe with the bf and a few friends :) We are still deciding which cities to visit although we will be starting from Munich and some destination ideas so far are Prague, Salzburg, Venice and perhaps parts of Slovenia as we have never been there before. Lake Bled and Ljubljana (pictured below) look very pretty. It might only be Mid-March but I say there's no harm in a little May dreaming :)) ...
