Best, today, to keep the write-up short and enjoy a whiskey – tea – port – whiskey. .. repeat.
Intended to stop over in Slovenia at the huge national park at Kranjska Gora, enjoy the park & lakes, and continue our new-found interest in caves.
Not to be. Snow simply got heavier, with the Wurzen Pass, our intended route, closed (no warning until arriving at the pass). Nice guy at the garage pointed out that when they have 5cm of snow the pass has 10 x more. So, 40km detour to bring us around on the other side … snow getting heavier, road getting narrower, 9km of climb still to go, van starting to slide as the snow compacted and began to freeze, and with the forecast predicting -9° overnight, we bailed, almost getting stuck, and headed down to Trieste.
Currently staying in the most expensive camping park we’ve yet had. €18 overnight, €4 electricity, €12 for toilets … and it’s just a carpark. Welcome to Italy.
Sigh – some days are just like that 🙂
The slide show below is from Niki’s view of the day – enjoy.
