    Day 226: Vintgar Gorge

    September 28, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Another fairly chilled out day. We both slept much better and we were up at a reasonable time, so we headed directly for Vintgar Gorge. This is a long gorge, probably 1.5km or so, with a rushing stream, steep cliffs, quaint bridges and of course some beautiful forest scenery. It's also just outside Bled, and probably the most common day-trip amongst people who stay there.

    Knowing that it tends to get quite crowded and busy, we headed off early - 9am or so, and we were in the gorge by around 9:15am. Only a handful of cars in the car-park which was a good omen! We took about an hour to walk to the far end, stopping quite a lot to take photos and coax Schnitzel along the boardwalk (he's not a fan of bridges or elevated walkways, or anywhere he thinks there's a drop-off, really). Got some great photos of the scenery, particularly since there was almost nobody around, only a handful of people coming back the other way.

    At the far end was another waterfall, not very high but certainly roaring along at a jolly old clip. Walked down about a hundred stairs to the viewing platform, took some photos then headed back up. Had a quick coffee at the cafe on the end of the walk, then headed back up the path.

    About halfway along we bumped into Shandos's parents, who we knew were probably coming here this morning as well. We'd all agreed that we'd do our own things during the day and meet up each evening, mainly because they were travelling in a group of four and we couldn't transport everyone in the car!

    Shandos's uncle was walking quite slow, so after a brief chat we left them to it. Back to the car, where we picked up more burek for lunch and then headed to the apartment. Shandos alternated between snoozing and working in the afternoon, while I did more work and planning. Dinner again at the parents' hotel restaurant; third night in a row but we didn't mind since the food was good and not overpriced (though we were being shouted).

    Twenty four hour journy

    July 17, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Changing the scenes! Bus across the EU border, beach and drinks in Split in Croatia, a cold night train through the country, beautifull sunrise on an early morning, more trains across another border and a local one to a station near Bled. And finally a short walk along the most beautifull street to the hostel near Triglov Nationalpark in Slovenia. All of a sudden we were in common land surrounded by tourists, known architecture, and higher expenses. But Slovenia is just as beutifull as one could have hoped for! The rest of this day was spend in Bled and sailing on the lake to visit the island in the middle.
    We learned from the news that we just escaped a forrest fire near Split (and Mostar and Montenegro) on our way north that very same day.

    Vintgar Klamm

    October 9, 2018 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute haben wir lange in unserer Hütte geschlafen und wurden mit einem reichhaltigen Frühstück im Picknickkorb vor der Türe überrascht. Ja das ist Glamping!
    Dann gings los in die Vintgar Klamm. Wir haben ja schon einige Klamms (?) gesehen und die waren vielleicht aufregender und spektakulärer. Aber es war ein schöner Ausflug bei bestem Herbstsonnenschein. Und Gerhards neues Knie hält. Also steht den nächsten Aktivitäten nichts im weg.Read more
