Contributor Bananaway used a drone to film what has to be one of the best spots for stand-up-paddleboarding in southeastern Europe.  Lake Cerknica is in southwestern Slovenia.  The size of the lake varies dramatically over the course of the year; at times it is the country's largest lake, while at other times it mostly drains and becomes more of a swampy wetland.  During the right season, its calm waters and extensive marshy areas make for some epic paddleboarding!
