We started in Tolmin and stayed at Camp Vili,  Little did I know this would turn into the Ping Pong Tour Championship of Slovenia.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BIKE & CAMPOUT IS HERE.

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 had a super time here in America.  The bicycle tour from Portland to Death Valley was my super dream bicycle tour.  I heard “your living the dream” multiple times from the people I met.  I feel lucky, at 62 that I’m healthy and have the motivation to continually seek adventure.  I also did the bike tour to reaffirm my choice to move to the EU.  No question about it, the EU’s social & economic values are more representative of my values.

EATING, DRINKING AND BIKING, my last month in SKOFJA LOKA

​There’s maybe 5 restaurants around Skofja Loka, and I plan to eat a last supper at all of them. Earlier I explained to Natasa that I liked to go out to eat.  She said she’s willing to go out once a month.  That’s 12 times a year, there’s over 1,000 meals a year. I explained the main reason I wanted to go out was to just be together and talk.  Not jump up and check the pasta or do the dishes, just hang out together.  After explaining it to her 5 or 6 times, I gave up, she just didn’t get it.    Now I can go out anytime I want and that’s what I plan to do.
