Unforgettable Days Cycling Europe, Part 1

Before we get started… Happy Birthday biggest big brother! We’re thinking about you today. Here’s wishing you all the best for the year to come. Today was a pretty insignificant day. We boxed some stuff for mailing, shopped for a few packing supplies, and walked around the neighbourhood. It got me to thinking how the […]

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

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 […]

Sometimes Things Just Work Out

1352 km so far. Not every day is full of surprises like yesterday was. Sometimes, things just go according to plan. This morning we got up bright and early and availed ourselves of the included breakfast at Hotel Kovac. It was a continental buffet, with tasty tiny turnovers, yogurt, fruit, good coffee, and even pancakes. […]

Life Is Not Always As You Expect

1282 km so far. Some days you just don’t know what is going to happen, and sometimes those turn out to be the best days. Despite a difficult start, today was one of those. We were expecting a nice lazy ride along the Kolpa river valley. The Kolpa river is 113 km long and forms […]
