After 10 days of training camp in Slovenia (we mainly practiced plastering oversized grill plates 🥩🍗🍖🥘 and drinking delicious Slovenian 🍺) today, to acclimatise again, a lap towards Lenningen. My plan was actually to drive to Trailfingen by car. Then it would have been a comfortable 45 km. But if the woman thinks that we can do that from Hayingen, then there is no point in contradiction.

Today, after the short detour to Italy, back to Slovenia along the coast. We left our destination Strunjan on the left and first turned a lap towards Prian (beautiful harbor town). All of the cycle paths here are superbly developed and, as has been confirmed again today, the Slovenes are very considerate of cyclists. It's just fun to ride a bike here.

From Divača to Muggia it was the most scenic stretch of our tour so far. Mostly gravel, sometimes a bit rough and correspondingly bumpy to drive but through really beautiful landscape, away from roads. On the railway bike path towards Trieste with beautiful views again and again.
On the way we stopped at the Skocjanske Jame cave park. The two-hour stay was absolutely worth it. (Although the Swabian in me had already contacted me beforehand and asked whether, since we had already visited Postojna, it would be worth spending so much money on the entrance again. In retrospect - absolutely. If someone would ask me Skocjanske or Postojna , my clear recommendation would be Skocjanske. Although the caves are very different. Postojna very large, wonderful stalactites. Skocjanske - huge halls and a cave stream.

Today we went from Postojna to Divača. On the way extensive visit to the rock castle of Predjama. We had bought a combination ticket for the Postojna cave and the castle. A visit to the castle was definitely worth it. It wasn't particularly busy and so we were able to visit the castle and the cave (cave castle) behind it. From then on it was another 35 km through hilly karst landscape to our today's destination. The total distance is very moderate again today, but after all we are on vacation and not on the run.

After it began to pour out of buckets this afternoon, as soon as we had moved into our room, we did not set off until evening to explore the old town and the castle. But the weather was great again (unbelievable how quickly this can change).
I have to say, really nice city. Indeed a lot of green and calm and friendly people. Everything fits.
