Slovenia is lovely paddling, you can learn loads there if you push yourself as demonstrated by the guys last year, it's a pleasant spot and in my memories quite warm. But is expensive to get to.

Val Sesia is a lovely spot, but I will say this: I went out when I was a solid level 4 boater, doing level 5 training and I still found it very intimidating. Even at that level I was limited in what I paddled because I was not good enough to get on a lot of the rivers and often reasonably nervous even on the ones I did. It is amazing, I want to go back someday, but I think unless you are a very solid level 4 boater with a bit of experience you will be limited in what you can run.

France would be somewhere I'd love to go back to but every time I try the water levels go mental.

vaguely thinking of going travelling next summer but I'd love to be kept in the loop on this, and maybe sort my shit out and go  :)

I agree with the above, considering the majority of interested peeps are sort of 2nd years, Slovenia would be a superb location...I wouldn't necessarily head back this summer just because I've spent about 3 weeks there and wouldn't mind seeing something else. But as a, relatively, safe training ground it has everything!  :D
