Sorry I didn't manage to get in for WOYWW but it looks like a great time was had by all who managed to get to the CROP.
Having trouble getting internet connection here in Germany but at last I'm in yet another bar catching up for a wee while and having a snifter or two... well, I'm on me jollies for goodness sake!
Here's the last leg of Flat Susan's adventures in Italy and Slovenia which I had prepped before I came here.
Italy....Abana Terme Market
We loved this old Italian sports bar and the coffee was GREAT!
Moving on from Italy to the Postojnska Caves. What an experience!
We rode into the caves for15 min on a fast, very rickety open train with strict instructions not to stand up as, at times, the cave tunnels were only a few inches away from our heads. Scary!
It was an amazing labyrinth of huge passages, and when we arrived at the heart of the caves we walked the guided route for about an hour. Water dripped on our heads here and there but it all added to the atmosphere of this fantastic experience. The stalagmites took the forms of hobbits, trees, folds of fabric, Moomins and my imagination ran riot.
I could not cope with the vastness of time and size when it took 100 years for just 1 cm of a stalagtite to form.
Through all this Flat Susan was very brave and quite amazed at the whole experience... as were we!
I wasn't supposed to take pics but didn't I do well? Amazing what no flash and a bit of editing can do!
See the little bridge, middle left, I remember whizzing over there with eyes shut with Donna last year!!
I still have a few pics to share, of Flat Susan's adventures with us, taken in Germany before she winged off airmail to Elizabeth. It may take a while as I don't know when we will have access to the net.
I really do have to have a think when I wake each morning to decide what day it is and where I am. Alzheimers coming on? No just the results of a whirlwind few weeks of travel.
Watch this space but thanks for all your comments to all of you who are following me and Flat Susan!
