Welcome to the second round of our ill-advised pursuit of comparing two countries and figuring out which is best for travellers. Last time we tackled the Croatia […]

Through The Woods To Hungary

1721 km so far. This morning we said goodbye to the family Guilloteau, who, it turns out, met up with David and Collette back in Postojna (touring cyclists of the world unite!) and we headed out of Ptuj, towards Hungary. Just outside Ptuj, Pocket Earth was telling us to go one way, and the road […]

Hot Tubbing And People Watching

1646 km so far. It rained all night last night, and it was still coming down when we woke up this morning, so that made our should-we-stay-or-should-we-go decision much easier. There’s nothing better than a thermal spa to take the rainy day blues away. Before we could relax though, we spent a few hours at […]

Heaps Good Day

1640 km so far. When we toured Human Fish Brewing a few days ago, brewmaster Matt suggested we go visit his expat friend and wine-maker Nick, who has a winery just off our route east through Slovenia. I emailed Nick and arranged to meet up and have a look around his winery, Heaps Good Wine […]

Youth Art And The Young At Heart

1575 km so far. We had a slow morning this morning, visiting Ljubljana’s daily market for some fresh fruit and vegetables and fresh pasta, and snapping a few more photos of the plentiful graffiti in Ljubljana. We also made a quick coffee stop at Cacao. We had the most delicious pistachio cake there last night […]

Day Tripper

1500 km so far. We are loving Ljubljana so much, we decided to spend one more night; we are not yet tired of great beer and great food. We don’t really go in for churches and museums, however, so we decided to take a day trip to Velika Planina, a plateau-ish area 1600 m up […]

Beer, Yoga, Namaste: What A Great Day

1435 km so far. We have discovered that hardly anybody we know knows anything about Ljubljana. We love this city! It’s the first place we’ve felt we could stay for a while; our first impressions have been great. For a start, there is great coffee at Cafetino, great beer by Human Fish Brewery, and great […]

Human Fish Saves The Day

1435 km so far. I am sick of lager. And pilsner. I knew when we headed out on this trip I would end up drinking a lot of light (in colour and taste) beer, because we are in the land of light beer. While living in England for almost a decade I fell in love […]

Going Underground

1380 km so far. Cave Life We are camping outside Postojna for two nights, which means we don’t have break camp this morning, and it means we get to ride our bikes without all our panniers today. This makes everything a bit easier. To make things harder, the forest our campground is in is snowing […]
