Eurotrashed 2007: Eastern Europe part 2
My Eastern Europe trip just got extended because I had the wrong return date in my head!
I got an early start from the hostel and walked down to the train station. My first stop would be Vienna just an hour away in Austria. At 10:57 my train to Slovenia pulled away from Wien (Vienna) Südbahnhof. It is a 6½ hour trip to Ljubljana with one change of train. It was a very beautiful ride. From Ljubljana I went to Bled, a well known mountain town. I can play tourist in the city anytime but I'd better get to the mountains as soon as possible.
Bled: 7 - 11 October
This town lives up to its reputation. Look for yourself: Beautiful Bled. Vintgar Gorge was a special treat. Traveller's Haven hostel has some really nice mountain bikes to loan people staying here and I borrowed one to bike over to the gorge. I had heard that it was good but didn't realize just how good. Wow. The pictures do not do it justice.
As of this moment I'm not sure if I will be climbing Triglav or not. About two weeks ago they had some bad weather and there may be a bit too much snow for what I am equipped to handle and I can't rent everything I'd like to have. Hmmm.
