finally we decided to stay a bit longer in slovenia, gregor the truck driver who helped us to cross the border was totally right, slovenian speciality is not food or anything else, this is the human warm!
people do everything they can to help us, we took the bus only one time because it was 11pm, but others we just show a thumb and some second later someone stopped!
im thinking between others about matthei, who made yesterday a longest trip of more than 40 km to avoid us an hard walk! he was going to check the pool in a new hostel, and told everybody in slovenian that he was with 2 frenchies on the phone and they would have to wait! he pointed out on our map the most beautiful sites to see in slovenia and in croatia as well! he climbed at the top of all moutains around, he told us that from the top of triglav mountain we can see the whole croatia and even the see!
i would have to come back to reach the summit!
landscapes in slovenia cannot be described by words thats why i added pictures, yesterday morning we walked til vintgar gorges, a torrent of transparent water digged a huge canyon in the mountain. We walked in the bottom, in holy fresh air, that we couldnt enjoy otherwise cause its almost 30 degres out of the canyon!
just some sunny rays are filtered between the trees meters and meters above us, whole different kinds of green are here. amazing!
we arrived then in triglav national parc, the most famous in slovenia, mountains are circling a huge lake, we climbed one of thoses to see the savinca waterfall, absolutely wonderful, and had a huge panorama on the valley.
while we walked around the lake, after a 2 hours walk, (im well surpised i support really well the backpack now), a storm felt on us, in 2 second we were all wet, a slovenian women offered us a tea waiting for the sun back, and totally exhausted after our first walk day and 35 km, we planted the tent with 5 french girl very "roots" with locks and piercings, living in a truck, with 6 dogs, an accordion, beers and vodka. they were really kind, but we had to move cause they were not allowed to stay here, so we decided to sleep under the stars, 2 meters from the lake.
we left this morning to have a big walk in the parc, said goodbye to the girls, and after a small break we will go to lubliana today and remain there for the night or near to the caves, tomorrow we should be in croatia!!!
we are definitly so lucky til today! im amazed by people kindness
