The Pic of the Week is drawn from photos submitted to the Solo Travel Society Facebook Group, providing an opportunity for solo travelers to share with us a favorite photo from their travels.
This week’s photo, submitted by STS member Christina, was taken at Lake Bled in Slovenia, one hour north of Ljubljana. Says Christina, “This was part of my first solo trip to Europe a few weeks ago. My goal was to hike around the entire lake. It was breathtaking. After getting there and that walk with a nice lunch in between overlooking this island….I knew I could travel alone and be happy. No more waiting for a boyfriend or best friends to go with me. I did it and it was the best decision I could have made!”
