Who is this Pink Backpack? Her name is Stephanie Huff and she is an elegant and smiling traveller who comes from Canada! She came to Slovenia to explore the BIG BERRY universe during 3 whole days.

We picked her up at the Ljubljana Airport and went straight to the BIG BERRY Kolpa River Resort to have dinner. After that we met with our team of fashion designers at the Pivovarna Vizir to visit the brewery and taste some of their delicious beers! She really enjoyed all those craft drinks!

As an expert traveller, Stephanie loves hiking. During her stay, we went hillwalking with Klemen - our Slovenian guide - on several places, such as the Mirna Gora forest and Sodevska Stena. At the top of Mirna Gora we met the owner of a vacation cottage. After he had offered us a cup of tea, he took us to a unknown beautiful place away from tourists, surrounded with many lakes and house ruins. The landscape was amazing. Our Pink Backpack mentioned that it had been a long time since she has seen such a green scenery.

We stopped at several places to eat along the way, such as Gistilna Muller, where we tried some culinary specialities from Bela Krajina, and Kmetija Zupančič. The owner of this farm showed us the black olm (‘human fish’) that is endemic to this part of the world. Back at the resort, we listened to our BBmastermind Tomaž Aupič, a young entrepreneur who creates active chairs. After this interesting meeting, she went to relax in a warm jacuzzi.

Her BIG BERRY adventure ended with an ice cream at the TIK TAK cafe. After an explanation concerning the ice cream making process, we savoured those delicious treats and after that, Stephanie continued her trip around the world.

Bon voyage à notre Pink Backpack!
