Slovenia: Hike to Korošica

If you don't know what to do in the morning, a quick hike is always a good idea, therefore me and Nada decided to go to Korošica, 1554 m. We chose a little longer track, that took us to Koča na Ljubelju mountain hut, 1370 m, and then we followed the path on a border between Austria and Slovenia to our destination.

In the morning Nada, Borut and me decided to go hiking. Our destination was a nearby mountain, Vrtača.

Slovenia: Cycling from Work to home

It is not easy to cycle from work to home, especially not on Friday, but I managed with the help of my friends.

My last escort was Nada and it was already late

Slovenia: Cycling (Rašica) - Work - Cycling (Kamniška Bistrica)

Today I cycled to work again, this time a bit differently. From home to Kokrica my route was the same as usual, but from there we had different plans. Rok, Grega and me decided to avoid sealed roads as much as possible and on the way we wanted to conquer a local hill, Rašica (Vrh Staneta Kosca), 641 m. We all enjoyed riding through fields, forests and on muddy roads.

Almost four hours instead of two

After work I had another bicycle trip on my schedule. Nada and me did a round-trip to Kamniška Bistrica, where we also found some GeoCaches.

First we stopped in the Gorge of Veliki and Mali Predaselj, that represent the narrowest parts of Kamniška Bistrica riverbed. They form a 100m long gorge, in which the river streams between vertical walls of very hard, dark-grey limestone. Gorge reaches the depth of 30 meters and in some parts it is hardly a meter wide.

Our 2nd GeoCache was located near the Plečnik mansion. The plans for the hunting lodge which was built in the reign of King Alexander and also for him were drawn up by Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, whose aim was to incorporate the mansion’s exterior into natural environment on the one hand and on the other hand provide luxury in the interior of the building.

The next GeoCache was next to a very cold Kamniška Bistrica spring

2nd trip with my Snow White

GeoCaches found:
- Predaselj, GC1ZTYG
- Plecnik XXII – Dvorec / Manor, GC3DYRD
- Izvir Kamniške Bistrice, GC1ZDXP
- Dolina Korošica / Korošica valley, GC4T8BT
- en' kup zdravja, GC3XX3M

At this point I have another happy news. My Snow White and me achieved an important yearly milestone. We said we will do 3000 kilometres together and today that number was reached. Our first ride was on 27.4.2014, so we needed 4 months.

Slovenia: Weekly Hike: Mojstrana - Jerebikovec - Mali vrh - Mojstrana

Our sport and cultural society ŠKD Indijanci went on a forty-first morning hike (52nd overall). We started with the hike from Mojstrana straight to our main peak, Jerebikovec, 1593 m. On the windy top we quickly located a GeoCache and after a log we started with our return. Since it was still early we did a quick detour to nearby Mali vrh, 1389 m, but even that didn't help, so we had enough time for two more geocaches before we went to work.

A year ago I was on this top with my schoolmate Janez and we came with bicycles

Slovenia/Austria/Italy: Cycling in 3 countries

The weather forecast told us, that the rain will hold till 14:00, so Nada and me packed our bicycles into a car and drove to Gozd Martuljek, where we parked and started riding. Plan for today was to do riding in Slovenia, Austria and Italy, which is a nice circle loop. Threatening cloudy weather was with us from the beginning, and just after we crossed the first border, it started to rain a little bit, so we stopped for a while in Peče (Pöckau). After half an hour we were able to continue and the sun started to shine. A very nice cycling path led us over another border to Trbiž, from where we continued towards two lakes, Belopeška jezera in Slovene or in Italian "Laghi di Fusine". The lakes are fed by artesian springs on the north face of the 2,677 m high Mangart peak. It started to rain again so we stopped for a beer and magically it stopped again. So we decided to move on, back to our starting point. This time we were unlucky, it started to rain again and for the last 20 kilometres we rode in very wet conditions.

Will it hold, or it will not, that was the question.

Slovenia: Dinner with Kralj family

After the bachelor party we woke up in a hut Dom na Gospincu, 1491 m, where we had breakfast and then I descended with my Snow White to the valley. While I was riding down to Dvorje, rain started to pour and soon I was totally wet. In Dvorje I waited for Nada and together we went rain-riding to Kokrica, where we had a car.

Breakfast: Eggs with Green Tea

Morning rain-ride from Pirgo's bachelor party on Dom na Gospincu to Kokrica

Since I lost a bet against Nada some time ago, my job was to organize a dinner on raclette grill for Kralj family and us. For the drinks we had a bottle of Pimm's, brought from London two weeks ago.


Pimm's was first produced in 1823 by James Pimm

Slovenia: Cycling to Pirgo's Bachelor Party

My friend with many names, Pirgo, Primož, Muha, ... had a stag night today. He chose a nice location, Dom na Gospincu, 1491 m, in Slovenian Mountains for it. I decided to join the guys with my own transportation, bicycle.

Rok and Grega escorted me to 1/3 way up

On 2/3  of the way up I received a quick EPO shot. Thanks Primož and Primož

The uphill cycling dehydrated me, so I immediately needed a liquid in a green bottle called Laško beer. The party began, we were there, but for those who weren't, 3 pictures for you. Cheers!

Long weekend in Brno and on Masaryk Circuit was behind us, therefore it was time to go home. We squeezed our asses in a van and left towards Gostilna Ankele, where we usually stop after this event. After the lunch we all went separate ways.
