Hvala Slovenia, It’s Been Great!

May 9 - Maribor to Leibnitz How many songs have been written about rain I wonder?  Here comes the rain again, falling on my head like a memory… Raindrops keep falling on my head… It’s raining again… I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain… I can’t stand the rain, against my window… I’m siiiingin’ in...

A Slow Day

May 8 - Ptuj to Maribor We set off from Ptuj, through the cobbled streets as the town was waking up and people were beginning to go about their daily work and errands.

18% + 14% + 16% = Huffing Beautiful

May 7 - Celje to Ptuj We had some hills today…some big hills…some tough hills and we huffed and puffed our way to the top, but the top was worth the effort…beautiful scenery again!

What a Great Ride!

May 6 - Lukovica pri Domžalah to Celje The day dawned with mist over the hills and the clock bells tolling from 5:00am.

Three Countries in Three Days

April 30 - Portorož to Trieste Yes, we have crossed another border…just like that… all of a sudden…we’re in yet another country! We had no plans to return to Italy on this trip, but leaving Portorož, our route took us so close to the border that we thought we’d just pop across and investigate Trieste... Continue Reading →

Pausing in Portorož

April 29 - Portorož Y’know when you put a layer of clothes on and then it’s still cold so you add another layer and then another layer until you can’t bend your arms and you can only tilt them back and forth like a Lego person? Well that was me this morning. It was COLD! ... Continue Reading →
