Slovenia, Italy, Austria: Motorcycling to Grossglockner High Alpine Road

Sunny Sunday was just perfect for some riding. We decided to visit 2 neighbouring countries, pass a couple of high alpine passes with a goal to ride on Grossglockner High Alpine Road.

Our first bigger pass was Passo di Pramollo/Naßfeld Pass at the altitude of 1552 meters and from there we went straight towards our the high alpine road, where we stopped at Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe  @ 2369 m. We continued through tunnel at Hochtorl Pass (2504 m) and Fuscher Törl (2428 m) to Edelweißspitze viewpoint (2572 m), which was the highest point today. We descended to state of Salzburg and returned back home over Radstädter Tauern Pass (1738 m), Turracher Höhe Pass (1795 m) and nearby Ljubelj (1069 m).

Austria: Cycling and Hiking in Bärental

The weather forecast promised a beautiful day, so we decided to do some cycling in Carinthia. We started cycling from Borovlje by the river Drava to Bistrica v Rožu and then the steep part began. Our destination was Klagenfurter Hutte/Celovška koča, 1664 m. From there we continued on foot to Ovčji vrh (Kozjak), 2024 m and from there back to the valley.

Slovenia: GeoCaching on the way home

Nada and me decided to do some GeoCaching after work. We didn't find a lot of them, still we set the record in finding most cache types in a day. We found a Traditional Geocache, Letterbox Hybrid, Mystery Cache and EarthCache.

View to Grmada and Šmarna gora

Shit happens.

The Dovžan Gorge is situated a few kilometres northern from the Tržič settlement  in the heart of the Karawanks. Wild streams of the Tržiška Bistrica river have been excavating a deep gorge for centuries uncovering stones, that bear witness to a long and interesting geological history.

An hour of hiking at the beginning
