Finaly on two wheels! Well, almost.

Standard

It’s been so great to take a few days off from permanently moving around. After leaving the hotel in Romania Will and I headed further west toward Hungary and finaly Slovenia. Shortly after crossing the border we entered a really prettly little town called Mako. There we found a very beautiful, shady camping site. There was a big river that ran next to it, a very friendly black dog named Negro, two goats and two sheep. The place was covered in white fluffs of cotten from the Cotten Woods and when the wind blowed it looked like snow. There we met two Brits doing a similar trip as us on two 125cc’s. It was nice to hear their stories.
The next day we realised we only had enough money for either petrol to the border or 1 night’s stay. So in order not to have to draw money again we opted to drive to Slovenia where we could get Euros. The next day we drove our last leg in Horny to Koper. It was really great to see Niko again. We got to hear about Jasa and his trip from Turkey through Serbia and Croatia back home. We had some amazing pizza for dinner then went to an open air concert. They were a great local band with a humorous twist to their music and lyrics. The next day we just relaxed around the house and watched tv. We went for ice-cream in the afternoon and a walk along the marina. We then went to a wine and olive festival. This was great fun and for only 3euros we got to taste wine and olive oil the entire night. There were brass bands and a great vibe as you walked through the narow streets from wine stall to wine stall. Needless to say we got home pretty late.
We’ve been taking it pretty easy here, getting paper work ready and trying to find cheap new tires for the bike. Will was very excited, by the way, to get back on his baby so as soon as we landed in Koper we had to go for a nice ride along the coast and through the Slovenian country side. It was really great to be back on the bike and I got even more excited for the rest of our trip. My but did get pretty sore even after only about an hours ride. Hopefully i’ll just get used to it. We paln to leave for Italy by about Wednesday. I’m very excited to see my favourite bella Italia again, not to mention my family. I just hope my but will make it all the way there!
