2023 06 09 Adria Alpe trail 2. Day
Got up at 5.30 breakfast at 7. The horses had a field night and stayed within the fence with the battery off. We saddled up and where on the road at 8. Climbing up the mountain where during the 1. WW thousands of young people sacrificed their lives for as of today absolutely nothing. It's the walk if peace to see all the dugout and artillery bunkers where soldiers suffered. We led the horses down for about 8 km till we hit the village of Tolmin where we started riding up the Soci river. We are in Slovenia and Italian is replaced by English. We hit a bar and got a Radler cause the humidity is very high which makes the 25 c hard to bare. We trotted the next 20 km up the river and for the next 6 hours the trail is all ours. No restaurant no beer. We find water for the horses but it's 5 pm before we hit a hotel that is actually closed but I am still able to get a beer. At least my tong ist not permanently fused to my gums anymore and I can communicate again.
An hour walking time to the next village where we find a guesthouse with a free field next to it where we can set up the horses for the night. It was 48 km today covered in 9 hours of riding and walking at least 20 km. Happy to sit at the restaurant while Gee is taking a shower, which I will do as soon as she is done. The beer here i 2 euros for 05. Good Deal.
