UK to Slovenia, Totally Unplanned

Bikes pretty much loaded, planning to set off whatever time i decide to get up in the morning.
Ferry at 1200 to Dunkerque, then a totally unplanned route down to Slovenia by the evening of the 2nd July, stay there 3 days then 2 1/2 days to get to Caen for the ferry back, again all totally unplanned.

A year ago my wife left me, while that sounds like a good thing it broke me apart. Tomorrow, (Monday) the divorce goes through and i have decided i dont want to be in the UK to celebrate it. So i decided to go away and to do it totally unplanned other than an end destination where i intend to relax, do the Julian Alps and enjoy myself.

I will be trying very hard to update this each day, sights i will see, places i will go, where i stop for picnics, snacks, coffee and hotels all booked last minute through or

First update from the boat tomorrow dinnertime.

Cheers all, see you out there.

Sounds like a variation on "Blue Highways" by William Least Heat-Moon.

Great book - I need to read it again.

Have a great ride.

So I'm here, currently in Krasny Gora (sp), after a couple of days riding down via Charleroi and Bavaria. Don't stay in Charleroi. It's crap!!!

Can't do a live report as I've realised my camera has an sd card which fits my laptop. Which is at home! I am a plonker.

Update with pics when I return.

Slovenia is utterly stunning. The scenery is fantastic, probably almost better than the Alps!

Stay safe
