Our plan was to have our holiday in BRITTANY AND NORMANDIE in the North West of France, but the weather here in The Netherlands had been so bad for weeks that I didn't want to risk another 4 weeks in a region well-known for it downpours and storms and quite low temps (although I have been there several time while the weather was great, extraordinarily!) so......we suddenly changed plans 1 1/2 day before setting out.
Changing plans is so easy for travellers-by-car with only a tent and no bookings or reservations...
It was going to be SLOVENIA......
For years already this was one of my wishes and I had already gathered brochures and folders and had leaved through the books on Slovenia which our Library has plenty of!
No, we were well-prepared, I even had maps...
We travelled for 3 days (at ease...to enjoy every day!) through Belgium, Germany and Austria to reach Marko's place in DOVJE.
I had just been able to email 4 VT friends of mine in Slovenia, kept in touch with each other by (cell) phone and had 3 mini-meetings which were a real blessing!!
But I have to keep in pace with the photos: this is the view we had from our appartment we rented at Marko's place for 2 times 4 nights!
PHOTO: VIEW on the TRIGLAV Mountains, breathtaking, especially for us, coming from The flat and wet Netherlands, such a joy, it made me speechless and it was difficult to leave the balcony to go to bed......
But, who wants to walk and climb steep and rocky paths has to sleep well........
Marko received us so friendly that it felt as if we were swirling down into a well, a source, a source of quietness and peace........and dreams
If you wouldn't call this A ROOM WITH A VIEW I wouldn't know what view you would think better than this!!!
The sun, the real one, opened my eyes early next morning and I felt willing and capable of walking for hours, whatever the temperatures would be.
Marko observes his friends and guests and is able then of giving you the best advice and soon we were on our way.
A walk along the river BISTRICA up to the high WATERFALL at Pericnic.
Of course you need to have good walking shoes (no new ones!!) and 1 or 2 (special) sticks can be of help and can prevent a sprained ankle or broken leg (lolol!) the first day!
The water came rushing and jumping over pieces of rock down, sometimes covered in soft white froth, sometimes emerald green, but always moving and travelling on, never hesitating but tumbling further and further down as if determined to reach its next destination as soon as possible, curious and frolicking as mountain streams always seem to behave.....now you KNOW ABOUT MY MOTTO and how I feel.......
Good friends together.......
This is Marko, help and stay in every way, always ready to give advice and help and.........to talk with in the evenings, sitting downstairs on the thick wood benches at the still thicker tables.
Friends and guests come down from their appartments and join the club, candles are lighted when time flies on.....and dusk becomes the dark of night, when stars appear and sometimes sudden gushes of wind from the mountains, where we sat enjoying a little glass of wine, wine or lemonade and sometimes the enormous lightening from a thunderstorm in the next valley and then, almost unnoticed, in twos and threes, everyone went back to his own place in the large house to close eyes and dream on till morning.
Marko is always the last one after having inspected every door, walking noiselessly on his felt slippers..........
- Pros:A COUNTRY THAT HAS EVERYTHING THAT CAN MAKE YOU FEEL HAPPY....
- In a nutshell:SO RICH IN NATURAL, CULTURAL AND HUMAN TREASURES....
These stories are in Dovje near POTOKAR. In the evening children play there, youngsters are chatting and a black cat... more travel advice
make me envy nature.......my palette never has such wonderful nuances....... The sun added beauty by shining on us and... more travel advice
