Endlich wieder mal auf der smaragdenen Soca

Nach drei langen Jahren haben wir den Weg auf unsere geliebte smaragdfarbene Soca endlich wieder gefunden. Die Tage verflogen wie verrückt.

New toys at the Soca valley

Thanks to the public holiday we spent four magnificent days in the soca valley/Slovenia. Babsi had some testruns with her new paddle and the new, fantastic Canyon Nerve ES Mountain bike while I enjoyed my new kayak – the Wavesport Project 52.

OK, time for the photos from Christof and myself

Pfingsttrip to Slovenia & Croatia

Pfingsten arrived and Babsi and I had to go on another trip. Due to some articles & guidebooks we decided to explore the rivers of Slovenia and Croatia – except the well known Soca. We started in the region of Bled, continued on to the slovenian Krka and there we had an accident that changed the hole trip: someone broke into our car.

Due to that we drove all the way to the croatian island Cres (fighting hail & snow with the heather and an always open – non-existing – window). There we found some nice mountainbiking, a very refreshing sea and a campsite that was the perfect muni-trailparcour.

Enough of the introduction – photos are just one click away or if you want to know some details ….
