What you'll do
We will do our FLOWER POWER WALK in the vicinity of Kal Koritnica near Bovec. Walking over meadows, through forest and along the beautiful Soča river we find many different herbs, each with its own charm. What are they hiding in their flowers, bark and roots? You will learn how they can help us and also about precautions. Because with wrong use certain plants can turn into little devils. Our lunch will be on a small beach by the river. Simple snack: I will bring cottage cheese and cooked potatoes. Then we will add edible herbs we have found on our way. In Bovec we call this "cuompe an skuta" (meaning potatoes and cottage cheese) but now with our green, healthy addition. We sit on the ground and rocks. Possibly we will see kayakers passing by playing on the waves of the splendid Soca. Her emerald color is mesmerizing. Oh yes: and the views of the steep mountains around us are spectacular!
A pharmacist madly in love with nature. Living in paradise, I like to work in the great outdoors. Besides my main job in the Bovec pharmacy I love guiding people on my FLOWER POWER WALK. Studying at the Faculty of Pharmacy I learned a lot about medicinal plants, later becoming an expert. A certification in Bach flower remedies helped me further. Always exploring my natural surroundings; I decided to become a licensed local tourist guide. Another passion is photography. Since buying my macro lens this beautiful world got even bigger and more inspiring ... And I love dogs- living with Samoyeds and Alaskan Malamutes has taught me many things. Unfortunately sometimes observing negative impacts of growing tourism, I am trying to fight for sustainability and nature preservation. Keep it clean! Keep it wild!
I will provide cooked potatoes and cottage cheese. Also i will bring plates, forks, knives and a cutting board.
I will drive you from Bovec to Kal Koritnica (and back) in my car.

Where you'll be
This FLOWER POWER WALK was established by me in 2010. It was the result of my final thesis of the faculty of Pharmacy at the University in Ljubljana. Intentionally the walk takes you partially off the beaten tracks and along the Soca river passing a variety of natural habitat. We will do some elevation gain however alltogether it is not so strenuous.
