    Landleben ...

    July 5 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Angekommen in Pivka, bei der wunderschönen Postojna Tropfsteinhöhle, übernachten wir auf dem Land zwischen Bauernhöfen und dem Zirbsen der Grillen 🌍🌿🦎🕊️ Es ist so ruhig hier...einfach toll! Der Sternenhimmel wird sicher mit einigen Millionen Lichtern mehr erfüllt sein ✨ ... einen Weinkeller und ne Schnapsbrennerei haben wir hier auch. 😉Read more

    Pivka Barracks

    July 26 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    were built by the Italian army but rose to fame on the so-called 'Day Before'. On 26 June 1991 the first tanks of the Yugoslav People's Army left from here to suppress the independence of Slovenia, which following the fall of the Berlin Wall and the success of the democratic opposition parties to hold free elections resulting in an 88.5% vote for sovreignty, had declared Slovenia a Republic.
    The T-55 tank was the principle type used and perhaps to commemorate this with an emphasis more on peace than war, the Tree-55 was built to guard the museum entrance.
    The crushed car is a re-creation of one such symbol of suppression.
    The museum has a fine collection of armoured vehicles from WWII, as well as aircraft, a pocket submarine and a German Class 52 steam locomotive.

    Today we went to the skocjan caves park.
    It was just amazing. It deserves a really great big mention with lots of descriptions of its vast scale but really nothing would do it justice. Only photographs.
    However it is worth mentioning the immense task the early explorers had, cutting out their steps from sheer rock and their paths looked most precarious.
    Their cafe too is worth a mention as they did fantastic and reasonably priced gnocchi.

    June 13, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅ ☀️ 77 °F

    We set off after breakfast to the next part of the adventure. Slovenia..it was hard to say goodbye to Willi and Marie and Angela and her family as we felt that they had made us so welcome we had become friends by the end of the four days.
    We knew it was going to be a long drive to Trnje which is where we are now. We had planned to stop somewhere for lunch and a journey break e traffic was awful with many bits of road under reconstruction. We came off to find somewhere to eat but ended up in a not so bad service station and shared a sandwich. having set off again we put Trnje into the Apple car play sat nav. Basically maps. We skirted round Lubjana and arrived at what was supposed to be Trnje only to find it wasn't and the real place was still one hour away. By this time we had been driving for five hours and were pretty fed up with the situation. However, there was nothing for it and we continued on our way.
    Worth the drive when we got here Na Meji as it surpassed our expectations. We had stopped for some provisions. Got the meal on to marinade and then had a lovely walk along the lanes before supper.
    After supper we partook of the home made brandies with our cherries. Not a great idea!
