My last weekend in Skofji Loka was booked solid; antique and crafts markets, biking, shopping, washing windows, dinner. I started with the antique market at 8am.
IT´S ALSO A RELIGIOUS PILGRIMAGE ROUTE, LITTLE TRIBUTES TO JESUS ALL ALONG THE WAY.
We visit this large church and decide to just lay there in the tall grass and listen to the wind. I feel so lucky to have found my freedom and someone that is willing to share it with me.
THIS LITTLE RABBIT WAS SITTING ON THE TABLE, FRONT ROW SEAT!
We stop at the store and buy supplies for Grandmas birthday. We spend an hour trying to save $1. I explain that I would rather spend the euro and have more time together; message received. Our 1 hour bike tour is now on hour 4, I´m starving. We head to the crafts market (again), this time for some vegetarian sandwiches.
HOTTEST COLD SANDWICHES IN SLOVENIA!
I´m cooking blueberry pancakes (go figure), bacon and “birds in a nest” for Grandpa (doesn´t like sweets for breakfast) (bird in a nest is bread with a hole for the egg, salsa, tomatoes, cheese)
NICE SMILE SARA :()
Natasa and I agree this is the BEST weekend ever. I tell her I want to go on the walk that we did the first day I arrived. I want to go to her favorite spot, where the 2 rivers meet.
Carolyn and Tyler of TWO WHEEL TRAVEL BLOGcalled and said they were heading to Croatia, me too. So I suggested they come to Skofji Loka and we leave from here, OK. That makes several people happy, I´m staying one more day!
A GOOD PLACE FOR SOME MINOR BIKE WORK
Were riding, again Carolyn´s routing is great, no rain until we reach the campground, 80 km. I´m dead, I haven´t ridden in a month. It´s thunder and hard rain, ALL night. The next day is the most serious rain I´ve ever ridden in.
I THINK I´M READY I’M READY FOR THE RAIN, BUT NO!
It´s raining hard we hide under a shelter for a few minutes.There´s talk of taking the train. We decide to keep riding. They ride faster than me, I pull up and their in a bus shelter making coffee.
IT´S POURING HARD!
Tyler and Carolyn are great tourer´s, I haven´t ridden with anyone in 5 months, so this was a new thing for me. They insist the extra 7km toHOSTAL ALIETI IZOLA is worth it. I stop and take this photo while riding along the shoreline bike path.
SAME PHOTO WITH PEOPLE
The next night we go for dinner. They´re vegetarian and I want some seafood. So I scope out a $8 pasta and squid dinner, too late. They just closed as we walked up, because of no customers. WTF? So Carolyn remembers the name of a highly recommended seafood place.
THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN BEFORE THEY GOT THE BILL, HAPPIER TIMES
The bill comes to $125 for 3, were all in sticker shock, All I I’wanted was my $8 pasta, what happened?
I did take this funny photo of a lemonade stand today too.
TYLER IS JUST KICKING IT
Carolyn and Tyler want to leave in the morning, I´ve got so much to do, blog, treat clothes, dry my tent and misc. stuff. I tell them I´ll catch up.
I call Natasa and suggest she come visit, score, that was easy. We get a dorm room for 6, to ourselves.
NEXT? Where did on sleep last night? the real story and all the Slovenian photos.
