And day 9 when we didn’t ride at all. After breakfast we took a walk to the local cross-hill. It was about 2 kilometers walk to this place and the air was already very hot! After few hundred meters I fell… Just took a wrong step and I was on my knees in the pavement. Luckily I was able to take the hit to the pavement mostly with my hands but I got this anyway to my knee:
Here’s the cross that we saw on the hill. It’s about 10-12 meters high!
We planned to visit one cave but there was a risk of thunder… So we went only to the beach to enjoy the clear water of Adriatic sea!
Day 10 we started the ride back home (kind of)…
First we took the curvy road up to the mountains and closer to Slovenia. This road has long history as the Lousiana -one of the most significant roads in Austria-Hungary already back in 19th century. The highest point was near Mrzle Vodice village at 928 meters.
Then we were in Slovenia! The temperature was much cooler since we were quite high -maybe about 500 meters above sea level. The road was quite nice ride until we rode under the Highway that goes southwest from Ljublana. After that the road was totally amazing!! Our route reached the road 102 and after Godovič there was totally crazy part where the road was following the canyon river and the walls were climbing high on both sides.
Under this Viaduct we took few pictures but mostly we were totally amazed by the views (and didn’t take any pictures!)
Then our route turned to the northeast and we were following the Soca river until we turned to Mangart.
After this rainy experience we’re again in Italy and we stayed in skiresort hotel in Sella Nevea village. The views were totally amazing and luckily we just took a short walk after the dinner before it started raining.
The 290km’s route for this day:
