Oops, WWII has broken out!

Not sure where I mentioned 'we' Jan but absolutely not!!

As my husband used to say (as a joke - I think!!) if God forgives me this time I'll never do it again!

Yes, as Ray says, much more likely to be my Hymer and me.

And Ray, I also like horseradish - just not the amount I had on my fork!!

I moved on from Voitsberg to Graz where I spent a very pleasant couple of days with my nephew and his family, then came down to this parking at Gabersdorf. I wondered how it was going to take me 1hr25 to do 50km but the traffic in Graz was dreadful - and it did.

It's lovely here - small, well-stocked lake (or 1 fish very determined to end it all) and a restaurant with nice food (and hot coffee!) There's also wine tasting less than 10mins away. But best of all, the sunshine is back! There is free electricity but it's too far away without parking on the grass. There is a toilet dump, and water available but again, over the grass which is a bit wet still.

There's a guy on his own in a massive Carthago but we haven't said more than hello, goodbye.... I do miss being able to converse in the language. I don't know how I'll get on in Croatia!

Gamlitz was next - parking in an adventure area with lots for the family to get involved in; not really for me but my Graz family were coming down to take me for a meal at their favourite restaurant and a wine tasting at their favourite winery.

Today I had a really lovely drive thru the valleys and hills, crossing the border (which does have a 'post' but it was closed) to reach Zalec. I was struck how green the landscape was, and the masses of dandelions looked amazing.

There's a beer fountain in Zalec. You buy a special mug for €8 with a microchip in the base. Then you can can have 6x100ml of beer from the 6 different ones on offer. There were no seats available and even if there were they weren't comfy looking so I passed on that. The lady in the info bureau was lovely and helped me with a few Slovenian words like hallo (it sounds like zdravo). Unfortunately when I used it in the bread shop she hadn't a clue what I was saying! It's nice parking here, at the beginning of a walking area - round the lake, up the hills. It's very popular with the locals - and I discovered there's a cafι when I went up to the lake this evening. I'm heading for Ljubljana tomorrow so I'll be there for Easter morning.

3. Sun going down over the lake
4. I think this lady has mastitis

Very good Jan!

Now in Ljubljana - another lovely drive (all non-motorway). Lovely houses, alpine style. No sign of poverty, even coming into the city. Most of the roads were good surfaces, some bits seeking out all the shakes n rattles of the Hymer.

I'm parked in the Tivoli gardens and of course, being Easter Saturday, it's bunged. But I discovered what looks like the dedicated MH area, up a hill facing you as you go in.

I shall investigate the tourist information shortly.
