Slovenia: GeoCaching in Črnuče, Ihan and Smlednik

Another day, where Nada and me were in a mood for GeoCaching. In the morning we picked up some in Črnuče and Ihan area, while after work we visited some places around Smlednik.

Klevar'ca - place with strange name

Galanthus nivalis - common snowdrop

The Old Castle is the central sight of the Smlednik area. The strategic location of the hill overlooking a crossing of the Sava River was appreciated by the first lords of the region, the Counts of Weimar Orlamunde, who built a defence tower on the hilltop in the 11th century. Read more - click.

Climbing trees is a big part of GeoCaching

Italy / Slovenia: Climbing in Glinščica Valley (Val Rosandra), 11th International Mountain Film Festival

In the morning our local mountaineering section AO Tržič decided to go climbing in Glinščica Valley (Val Rosandra) and with Nada we joined them. A good hour of driving and we smelled the sea and the sunbeams warmed us and the rocks.

Katja, Nada and me decided to climb in sector L - Bianca / Bela stena, where we climbed the routes La Bianca, Bianca del buso and Bianca dei due, with grades 5a to 5c.

In the afternoon Nada and me attended the grand finale of the 11th International Mountain Film Festival, where we saw the movie Sherpa in Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana.

Slovenia: Backcountry Skiing, Hike to Kofce

In the morning I decided to conquer Vrh Ljubeljščice with my skis and to ski on fresh snow on my way down. Unfortunately half way up my ski skins malfunctioned so I had to turn back - track. Better luck next time.

Still a bit disappointed Nada and me soon decided to go hiking and we chose Dom na Kofcah mountain hut, 1488 m, for our destination. Nice weather, fresh snow and a beer with schnapps at top immediately set things right.

Slovenia: Yearly Formula 1 bet with Dejan

I lost another yearly Formula 1 bet against Dejan, so today I paid my debts. Rules of the yearly bet are: "The one who loses the bet has to take the winner to dinner in the restaurant picked by the winner. The loser has to drive and pay for everything." Last season, Sergio Perez was better than Nico Hülkenberg by 29 points. Overall Dejan is leading now 9:6 and he chose Gostilna Rekar for dinner.

Sergio Perez was better than Nico Hülkenberg. They were both racing in Force India VJM09 racing car with  Mercedes PU106C Hybrid power unit.

Slovenia: Steak Time

Recently Nada became an Application Consultant for SAP TM, and since we had a little bet between us and she lost, she had to take me to dinner, but that happened after a short hike to  Koča na Ljubelju mountain hut, 1370 m.

As Nada said: "All you need is love. But a little steak now and then doesn't hurt."

Slovenia: GeoCaching Around Trzin

After work, Nada and me picked up a couple of GeoCaches around Trzin, all very interesting ones with a lot of unrevealed and known history.

Mysterious grave

"Čuvajte Jugoslavijo" (Protect Yugoslavia) were presumably the last words of Aleksandar I Karađorđević, the king of Yugoslavia and the last European monarch to be assassinated. 

Castle "Grad Jablje" or "Grad Jable" is an ongoing debate. The original castle was first mentioned in 1268, while the current structure was built by the noble house of Lamberg around 1530.

GeoCaches found:
- Kamnit spomin, GC4YY09, where I left trackable item "Kyuuban", TB42DME
- Čuvajte Jugoslavijo, GC4WX0A
- Zaklad grajskega miška, Mystery, GC5JJ2C

Slovenia: Morning GeoCaching and Afternoon Hike & Fly

In the morning, Nada and me picked up another 3 GeoCaches on our way to work. The most interesting one was, when we had to explore the remains of Yugoslav National Army bunkers in Hraše, that were used for Anti aircraft defence.

In the afternoon Rok picked me up on a train station Lesce-Bled and we drove to Brezje pri Tržiču, from where we started with another hike & fly expedition. This time we decided to fly from Dobrča take-off site. Hike was easier than we thought, my new set is really much lighter and the flight was also very great.
