The Alps...

The Alps...

Erzberg Rodeo is only something what we want to see quikly. The main point are the Alps. Not that fancy passes. We want to do some off road there.

It was four days of everything:

Beautiful scenery...

and not so beautiful,...

nice off road,...

and very nice road parts.

There was some crossing problems,...


There was also peace of Erzberg,...

some friends from Africa,...

night adventures,....

and something white.

This is our trip on the map:

- red: all the roads
- blue: all the off road
- black: sleeping points

So, lets start from begining...

Julian Alps - Day 1

Thursday, start at 5AM. Me and my friend Ivan. Tenere & XT. Off course, we start at 6. And a half.
Fast to Slovenia: Trogir - Sibenik - Benkovac - Maslenica - Rijeka - Rupe.
In Slovenia we put our friend Zumo to avoid everything except off road.
You can see whats hapened after that.

After half our of trying to find the exit we are on the road again. Lunch in small place called Zaga.

Meat for me...

and fish for Ivan.

It is time for mountains...

Nice weather on the top

This is what we try to find

Down on the south side

Lets go to Mangart. The most beautiful road in Slovenian Alps.

It will be better, maybe...

...but not this time. Waiting for better weather.

After half hour the rain stops. Lets go!

On the way to Mangart.

And than...

...problems again. Where is the tunel?

More bikes are coming.

What can you do? Go back, nothing else.

Over the Predil pass to Italy...

...and in Pontebba on new pass to Paularo.

Until we didnt come here.

After one hour fight with the mud and snow we are on the road again. Thanks to T63.

One and the only pansion in Paularo. Thats it for today.

Dinner, few beers and after that, baby sleeping. Italian part of the trip: Dolomites
