Austria: Morning Hike to Rjavca

In the morning Rok and me decided to have another morning hike. For our destination we chose a mountain Rjavca, that lies just across the border in Austria. We drove to Žabnica (Bodental) and from there we hiked over many small saddles to the 1789 m high summit. From the top we had a nice view to nearby 2000 meter high mountains like Vrtača, Zelenjak, Palec, Stol, Svačica, Ovčji vrh and some more.

Slovenia: GeoCaching in Gorenjska

The weather was stable only before noon, so with Nada we decided to pick up a few Geocaches in the vicinity. We took a nice trail in Kropa and visited three churches and a newly restored farmhouse.

Saint Mary's Church stands on a slope east of the historic Kropa town center.

The Church of St. Primus and St. Felician near Jamnik (831m) is one of the most photographed churches in Slovenia.

Slovenia: Little Bit of Cycling and Hiking - Mangrt

On today's vacation day I decided to cross off one line on my bucket list and that was to conquer Mangrt mountain, starting from home and using only bicycle and my legs.

I started a little past 5 a.m. and with my road bike Metliška Črnina we rode to Kranjska Gora, from where we started to ascent towards the first pass, Vršič, 1611 m. From there I descended almost to Bovec and from there the longest ascent began, destination Mangrt Saddle. The Mangart Road is with its elevation of 2055 meters the highest lying road in Slovenia.

At the saddle I left the bike and hiked to the top of the third highest mountain in Slovenia via ferrata called the Slovenian way. The mountain has two names, people say both names are correct so Mangart or Mangrt was soon conquered. Nearby thunder sounds and my schedule didn't allow me to rest so I returned back to the saddle via easier Italian way.

I was back in the saddle moving towards the Predel Pass, 1156 m, where I entered Italy for a while. After around 20 kilometers I returned back to Slovenia and it started to rain, so I decided to eat something warm and veal stew renew me. The rain stopped and I moved on and a little past 9 p.m. I arrived to Bistrica pri Tržiču and the day was officially over.

Austria: Belo jezero / Weißensee

With Nada we decided to spend the day mountain biking, geocaching and exploring new places. For our destination we chose the lake in CarinthiaWeißensee is the highest situated Carinthian bathing lake on 930 mAA and in summer the lake surface can reach 24 degrees Celsius.

Time for Geocaching


The water itself is clean enough to drink 

Time to rest

Hiking trail, where it is forbidden to cycle. We had a special permit.

About two thirds of the lake's surface are part of a protected area.

With a visibility range of up to 20 metres, the lake is among the most stunning diving destinations in the Alps.

Nice track and plenty of wild mushrooms

Everywhere astonishing view

On our way back we took the upper road, approved for mountain biking

Slovenia: Company Picnic in Koroška

Our company had its annual summer picnic and today they took us to Koroška (Carinthia), a traditional region in northern Slovenia. Since the event was only 100 kilometers from my home, I decided to get there with my road bike, Metliška Črnina.

We started riding at 5:00 a.m. and over Ljubelj Pass we entered Austria, where we rode by the river Drava all the way back to Slovenia and our destination, Muta and there I waited for the bus and my other co-workers.

Together we had a late typical Carinthian breakfast, followed by some games, where we had to show our special skills. After the hard part we took a ride with raft, or as locals say, with flos. After the meal and some shows we returned back to our place, where we continued with volleyball and picnic.

Carinthian breakfast - it was delicious


Games began. First we had to mark a rectangle 4 m x 2.5 m without any meters. In a second game, we had to walk on wooden sticks (hodulje in Slovene).

Riding the bike with an extra load was the third game and rope dragging fourth.

Slow driving was our last game and we almost destroyed the oldtimer - Zastava 750

Sketches with history lessons


Short plays and traditional music on the raft

Picnic and volleyball for the finish
