    Vogel, Trigav National Park

    August 25, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅

    There's a gondola.....AND a chair lift? We are there!!

    Vogel is 1922 m high mountain in Slovenia, part of southern Julian Alps and Triglav National Park. We took the cable car from Lake Bohinj to a height of 1537 m. In Winter Vogel is a ski resort, one of the largest of its kind in Slovenia.
    We then took the quad chairlift for the ultimate view of Vogel – Orlove Glave. Amazing views!
    The goats came from "somewhere" to kid around and not to be outdone the sheep appeared to - well be sheep - ewe know what I mean 😆

    October 2, 2018 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Nachdem in der Nacht die Regenfront durchgezogen war, setzte der Bora ein. Das Gute: alles wieder trocken, das Schlechte: Zelt Abbauen und Packen war dann schon etwas kniffelig, immer wieder wurde etwas weggeblasen.
    Nach langem hin und her entschied ich mich nach Slowenien an die Soca zu fahren.
    Zeltplatz wie es sein soll: we have only one roule: "No cars behind this line" ging mich ja eh nix an, denn moto is ned car!
    Meine Zeltnachbarn, ein deutsches Pärchen, war sehr gesprächig und trinkfest, um 00:30 gab es dann Nachtruhe, gefühlt war es da beriets unter Null.
    Gestern Abend bin ich mit einem deutschen Pärchen beim Bieren versackt.
    Details folgen.

    A walk in the woods

    September 6, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅

    It ended the same way it began... with a walk in the woods. The last 8.5km of my trail today led from up in the clouds at Črna Prst all the way down to Petrovo Brdo and went along beautiful forest paths/roads.

    Navigation was easy and so I had time to take it all in once more... the sounds and smells of the forest, the fresh air .... and of course also the burning in my legs from walking for 9 hours. It was a fantastic journey.Read more

    Hiking on top of the clouds

    September 6, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅

    And just in case there was any doubt about how cool this place is... let's bring in some clouds. Wow... that was pretty spectacular! There were some moments that got the heart pumping and this again definitely wasn't the time to be afraid of heights. But the views... really, really cool.

    Actually walking IN the clouds rather than ON TOP of the clouds.. not so interesting... but that is another story.Read more

    June 7, 2018 in Slovenia ⋅ 🌫 18 °C

    Another trip in the car. This time to Tolmin Gorge in the North West. Once again we start on the highway but soon move to the smaller roads. The road is narrow with many twists and turns. My driving has certainly improved since yesterday. It takes about 2 hours to get to the town of Tolmin. Time for a break for lunch, a lovely fresh trout and salad - yay something healthy at last.

    We head onto Tolmin Gorge. The roads just keep getting smaller, until we are down to one lane. Then there are roadworks, where half the road is cut out, I need to navigate this, if only the guys who were directing me had any idea about my lack of driving skills :)

    We finally make it to the gorge, but when you see Ben or Suzie ask about the naked guy operating the bob cat.

    As it is in the National Park the entry fee Is €5. It has started to rain but only a light so we should be good. Onward we go, following the map to see all the highlights. We follow the trail, the colour of the river is an emerald blue. The rain adds a mystic foggy atmosphere to the scenery. The walk all up takes about an hour. There are stairs, it nothing too strenuous and in the harder spots there is a hand rail. There are not many people around at all. Well worth a visit.

    It wanting to follow the same road home we head east towards Skofja Loka. It sure if this was a good idea, it’s very very windy, mountainous not enough for 2 cars, luckily there is not much traffic but certainly had to be very focused.

    Finally back to town to find a park for the car and time to have a couple of calming vodkas.

    mount Vogel

    August 22, 2016 in Slovenia ⋅

    Nachdem wir gestern zum aufwärmen eine kleine Tour um den See in bohinje gemacht hatten, soll es heute auf den Vogel gehen. Der Vogel liegt mitten im wunderschönen Triglav National Park. Der Aufstieg war anstrengend und das Wetter spielte nicht wirklich mit. Dennoch ein schönes Erlebnis.
