Rome

junij 18th, 2006 Comments off


Rim… no, pravijo da vse poti v Rim. Zato je bilo treba končno tudi obiskati večno mesto… Mesto zanimivo, malce kaotično, tipično italijansko in seveda zato tudi privlačno. Hrana odlična, seveda glavna dieta je bila pizza, običajno tudi kakšni špageti. Pravzaprav me je mesto presenetilo, poleg tega je ravno prav veliko tako da se da veliko kar prehoditi… Kaj pa je negativno? Definitivno cene prenočišč… za manj kot 100EUR na noč je praktično nemogoče kaj dobiti, razen če se ne spi nekaj kilometrov iz centra (kar pa je škoda)…

Eternal city of Rome. Actually, one of the few famous european capitals that still (until last weekend) avoided me. Yes, it was so close, yet too close to visit… 🙂

Its nice, worth a visit for more than a weekend. City is a bit chaotic, but thats Italy. Food is excellent, so is wine. Probably the only drawback are the prices of accomodation, as it is difficult or even impossible to get anything under 100EUR. But still… this city got to be on the intinerary of every traveller in Europe…

Jalovcev ozebnik couloar – winter

april 4th, 2005 Comments off

When you arrive to Tamar valley, at the end Jalovec is boasting, and almost resembles to famous Matterhorn. http://www.summitpost.org/show/mountain_link.pl/mountain_id/1285 At the first April saturday, on a beautful day, i decided to go skiing with Rado to Kotovo sedlo pass. Kotovo sedlo pass ranges up to around 2300m above sea level, and has great conditions for spring skiing, even in late june.

Despite high temperatures, there is enough snow on road in Tamar valley, so it very difficult to drive in. Before getting to the hut at the end of the valley, you first need around one hour of walking (though my father fortunately shortened us this walk, with driving us quite far in the valley in the morning with his 4×4). Another hour walking from the hut, steep slopes, great for skiing, start showing their teeth (well, at least those slopes tested our stamina). At the entry to the Jalovcev ozebnik couloar we decided not to got to Kotovo sedlo pass, and rather go to “short” but steep couloar, as the conditions for skiing were great! At the top of couloar, the sun was waiting for us. Excellent. And the conditions for the descent were even better, as there was some powder snow and no ice. Still, on parts couloar is quite steep and narrow. But this day, it was in perfect shape.

This descent is marked III-, S3+, 400 m. And the ascent from the starting point took almost five hours (around 1400m height difference… Eh, we need to get fit 🙂 And we could ski almost to our starting point. Unbelievable…

Dovska baba – winter ascent

marec 7th, 2005 Comments off

Dovska baba (1890m above sea level) – well, difficult to translate, old ugly lady from Dovje. Anyway, i’m not sure about the name, but its a great hill to ascent, no matter the season. I went up there twice in the past two months. The photos are from the first ascent, in february, when the snow level was really bad – actually, only on the top – i enjoyed snowboarding down to about 1100m above sea level. Its one of those technically not difficult ascents (and almost no danger of avalanches) with nice and long downhill.

A few weeks later and after a hefty to the hill, and the conditions were just perfect – lots of snow, and i was able to snowboard down to the valley, to my house at 700m above sea level. As my start and finish points were at my house, it took me 4 hours 45 minutes to walk up and snowboard down… Oh yes, did i mention that there was fresh snowfall?

London calling…

november 18th, 1998 Comments off

MEMORABLOG: 18.11.1998

Its was a cold November morning. My alarm started ringing at 4:30 am with the song »L’ombelico del mondo« – the belly of the world – loudly. Anyway, it was a short night, as packing was done into long night hours. So, i picked up Adi some 30 minutes later, just as he was just getting his hair cut (at 5am in the morning hehe)… actually, he didn’t even go to sleep, funny (straight from work, but hey, he was seriously tired afterwards in the day)… My dad then drove us to the airport, and i got seriously annoyed by his slow driving… But OK, better safe than sorry, as our trip was just starting 😉

So, our first stop was London, an overnight stop and British Airways arranged us a nice, but overpriced hotel (arguably, it was payed by BA, so i didn’t care – but the breakfast was really miserable – so, i really would recommend Russel Square hotel). Actually, we were quite surprised, how London is expensive… i had some 30 pounds, and Adi had some pounds less… so we had to survive 3 full days (2 going there, and 1 back) in London with that… impossible… We were actually typical tourists, just without any aid. No maps, no money, nothing. But we managed to get a right in a double decker, we saw Trafalgar Square, Buckingham palace, Big Ben and eventually we got lost in Soho… Food was miserable… all that we could afford was fast-food… When traveling from the airport Adi had a misfortune and his backpack got torn THE FIRST DAY of our trip, so… But I liked London. I liked the buzz around London, and surely i will come back some other day…

Some adrenaline rush was made by our visit to Victoria Coach Station, as we almost missed the bus… Well, not almost missed, but we were some 15 minutes early… and the bus was just leaving… damn, isn’t that a bit early? Not really, that bus is 1,5 hours late, so the next bus, due to go in 15 minutes, will be canceled… that would also mean missing the plane… but OK… it was the cheapest and apparently also the slowest transport to Gatwick…
