Ever since our baby boy Ren joined us, time started to fly even faster then before. It is hard to believe Ren is almost one month old, what was definitely a good time to do his first trip.
If he would be born in the summer, we would do a trip sooner, but being born in December, we wanted to have a sunny and relatively warm day to enjoy some outdoor walk with a stop for a cup of coffee under the clear blue sky.
We did not go far and the trip was done in Slovenia; Ren still has not got his passport. The weather forecast for the coast was looking nice and promising and that is why we decided to drive to Portorož (Portorose) and do the coastal walk to medieval town Piran (Pirano).
The complete coastal walk is beautiful and it runs along the sea, offering beautiful views towards Croatia and later on also to the town of Piran. If you will spend your holidays in Portorož, make sure to do this coastal walk to Piran. You will need around around 30-45 minutes by foot – depends from where in Portorož you start it.
Before we left the car, Ren got his portion of a meal (I try to breast feed him, what makes everything much easier, when being on the road). He was sleeping in his stroller the complete walk. Actually being in the stroller makes him sleepy and calm and with that perfect for Simon and me to enjoy each others company.
It was a beautiful winter day, with temperatures of 8°C above zero, so lots of people decided to do the coastal walk. But it was still not too crowded. We had great views towards Piran, its small marina and the famous Tartini square.
The Tartini Square is named after the composer and violinist Giuseppe Tartini, who was born in Piran. You will also find its monument in the middle of the square with his birth house nearby.
The town of Piran is a real gem on Slovenian coast and we definitely recommend you to explore it. Get lost in its narrow medieval streets, visit some art galleries and climb up the town walls from which you will enjoy stunning views to the town and the Adriatic Sea. The views are also spectacular from the main town church of St. George.
The complete trip was enjoyable for all three of us. Our little munchkin was sleeping in its Book Cross baby stroller from Peg Perego and we were finally somewhere else than home. So, for all the new parents, don’t be afraid to go on a trip, as it can really be so rewarding and you will also feel fantastic to be able to go somewhere. Don’t complicate and everything will go smoother then you have thought.
