No nature left in Europe? You need to get out more often. North East Poland, sometimes thought of as the “forgotten” Poland, is natural and wild. NE Poland borders Lithuania, Belarus & Ukraine.Continue reading
Finally found a window of free-time😃. I haven’t bike toured since Czech, last year! I wanted to ride Budapest to Belgrade, but the weather was too hot for me. So I chose Climate friendly Poland with average summer temperatures of 20-25.
I grabbed the train in Ljubljana to Vienna, arriving at 22, I stayed the night in Vienna.
I’ve been to Vienna a couple times, so I tried to catch the early train to Gdańsk the next morning. Booked!, so I booked an evening Flix bus & 50€ cheaper!Continue reading
My good friend David (aka Chops) visited for 3 weeks from America. We rented a car, loaded up the bikes and explored the hidden Gems of Slovenia, while visiting friends.
We started in Tolmin and stayed at Camp Vili, Little did I know this would turn into the Ping Pong Tour Championship of Slovenia.
I was bike touring around Slovenia, with Stanley from France, a few years ago. We stumbled into Kamniks Festival-KamFest. They filled the old town with high quality crafts, chopper bicycle show, food, music and “FREE BEER” from Mali Grad Brewery. I biked back last week, to re-live this great event.
Someone told me about the FLOATING CASTLE FESTIVAL when I was at the Kranj Fest last week. I was on the fence about going, but on Friday I packed up and took the bus to Sneznik Castle. Camping for only 5 euro + 20 euro for a 2 day all events pass. It’s a weekend of music, puppet shows, comedy juggling, and yep Slovenian Crafted beer. Watch out Portland & Oregon, we’re taking over.
I’ve been settling in my new apartment in Ljubljana (Slovenia). All the paintings are hung, got health insurance, extended my stay so I celebrated by jumping on the train with my bike.
