Have you ever wandered around your home town and noticed a tourist staring at some building, making tons of photos? Did you ever stop and try to figure it out, what so interesting is? We do that a lot and we are always surprised how fast we become unaware to all the beautiful scenes around us, when being home and take everything for granted.
We’ve been getting lots of invitations from different tourism boards lately and it is always nice to see, when your local tourism board (Visit Ljubljana) invites you to join in a special press tour. It is not only fun, but it is great to explore a well known place with the eyes of a traveler and get more information about all the newness’s, which you don’t even know about.
It was a cold and cloudy September day and it was time for a Segway tour around Ljubljana. We did not mind the weather, as it was finally Segway time! We were a bit nervous, as we have never ride a Segway before, but always agreed that this is something we need to try.
For everyone not aware, Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia – a small, but extremely charming country, which impresses everyone, who get the chance to travel here. But Ljubljana is so much more than just the capital – did you know that it was declared the European Green capital 2016.
The whole press trip was oriented towards nature, being green and sustainable. That is why our first experience during the press trip was riding the Segway.
Segway tour in Ljubljana is relatively new thing to do here, but that is why it is so much better and enjoyable. You will not only get to know the old town of Ljubljana during your tour, but you will also explore less known and less visited parts of Ljubljana.
We were a bit jumpy when getting the Segway in our hands, but after short introduction and few test rides, we were totally ready to go. At the end, everyone in the group had such a great time, we hardly said goodbye to our new toys.
Exploring Ljubljana on a Segway is perfect for everyone, who is fed up with old school guided tours and need some dynamic, new energy and trend in their lives. If you have not been on a Segway before, make sure to try one soon. But we are warning you, you might fell in love with it.
