Mirjam Pavlin, RazdrtoApril 28, 2017 in Slovenia ⋅
Ljubljana heavily restricts traffic in the city centre which makes for a very nice atmosphere. Unfortunately the atmosphere was not good to Cath and Paul, who got completely drenched when walking to our stopover, due to the fact that we couldn't drive Martha Motorhome to their hotel.
We soon got the blowers blasting out hot air as we drove to Mirjam Pavlin in Razdrto, our home for the next 4 nights. Stopping off at a Spar we picked up groceries before having a freshly ground coffee in the van. After having spent so long with just the two of us, it was interesting to see vanlife through the eyes of people to whom it was a new experience.
Mirjam Pavlin is a small B&B with campsite, bar, swimming pool, sauna, gym and a few other facilities. The rooms and pitches were nice enough but the sauna was less impressive and more expensive than it had looked on the website and the swimming pool was closed. They had also advertised horseriding that Vicky & Cath had been interested in, but the employee who showed us round didn't seem to know much about it. However, the gym was free and it was a good location for reaching a whole load of interesting places. That afternoon we planned our itinerary for the coming days. We needed to plan around the torrential rain that was forecast. This was easy because there was so many possible activities to do. We had a cosy evening in with a few drinks and Will's spinach and pasta meal for tea.
The next day we discovered a couple of sows and their adorable piglets in the field next us. There was also the opportunity to use the van as a mobile hide and watch the dozens of little birds feeding close by. Paul even spotted a pair of Great Tits. They were nesting inside a street light, popping in and out to feed their chicks through a tiny access hatch near the ground.Read more
