BIG BERRY – Workation on the Kolpa River in Slovenia

As per Wiktionary, workation is ‘A vacation that combines business and leisure.’

As a travel blogger, this is the only kind of vacation I can ever have. This can be both positive as well as negative. However, I value my freedom to roam the world over everything else and hence, workations trump for me.

I am not the one to keep my laptop behind on my worldly adventures and there’s never a day of complete digital detox (Unless I am in the remote jungles of India).

So for me, every vacation is a workation and if I say Big berry in Slovenia is the ultimate workation destination – You better take my word for it 🙂

Say bye bye to writers block when you are amidst nature at Big Berry. Whenever you feel the need to take a break, just take a dip in the Kolpa river or hop on a bike and wander off to nearby forests and streams. When you come back you can focus better and the idea of the next break can keep you going.

In the evenings, you can simply shut down from the day’s work by star gazing at the spectacular sky. Next day, just hit refresh with a strong cup of local coffee.
