Hiking: Pristovški Storžič / Kaerntner Storschitz – Austria

Today, we went for another hike. 🙂 The path starts just a minute away from Slovenian – Austria border (crossing Jezersko).

The path is really beautiful. I would say it has 3 parts – the first one is calm, not very steep. The path is leading true the forest, with the great smell, the birds singing and so on. 🙂 The second part is the part with a constant great view, because you’re walking on the edge of the forest – so there are breathtaking mountains all around you and the sun was shining all the way.

Than, it comes my favourite – third part with rocks, steep terrain and wire rope to hold on. This part is short, just for the taste of a real mountain, so it’s really not hard to get to the top. And then? The view is amazing, the sun was warm and our souls in peace. ❤ Lovely!

We went down on the other side of the mountain – this path was still very snowy at the top so we were laughing and smiling all the way down because there was always someone on their ass, there was funny noises and screams when your leg just fell into the deep snow … But it wasn’t dangerous because it’s not so stiff and there are no cliffs around. The path is longer than the first one so we were hungry and thirsty in the end. We went for lunch across the border to Slovenia … more in next post. 🙂

Mount St. Ursula (Slovenia) – Uršlja gora

2017-04-01-UrsljaGora_fotoSiNi_012_fhdr

Yesterday morning we went for a hike, here in Slovenia. 🙂 Mount St. Ursula or in Slovene: Uršlja gora.  The mountain is 1699 meters high and there are several paths that leads to the top, to the gothic church called St. Ursula (the highest laying curch in Slovenia).  The mountain lies between the towns of Slovenj Gradec and Črna na Koroškem.

The trail is not hard to walk – you have harder and easier ones. We went up from “Naravske ledine” this time and it is an hour and a half to the top if you walk slowly. We were on top in 55 minutes. 🙂

The view is amazing, the weather was fantastic and the smell of spring in the air! I love hikers, they are all so friendly, optimistic, nice and they always wear a smile! 😉

Short trip to Zbilje lake (Slovenia)

After a long day at work, we went to Zbilje lake for some vitamin D. Love the spring sunshine!🌅

You can rent a boat there, go for a walk, have a picnic, drink your coffe, have lunch or amazing fruit desserts. 😊 

This is house salad with veggies, grilled chicken and tatar souce. Mmm😊

On the way back home we stopped to take a photo of this great view of a small Saint Jakobs curch bellow Kamnik – Savinja Alps (in the village names Hraše). And that is it for today! Can’t wait for the weekend to explore some more. 😊

2. Hochosterwitz castle /grad Ojstrovica

Heading back home to Slovenia, we found this amazing castle. It looks great – I could see the stories going on there decades ago. I felt magical! You can read more about it HERE

Spring walk on a cloudy day (Slovenia – Podpeško lake/jezero)

Sunday is perfect day to get some fresh air outside. Today, we went to Podpesko lake under the mountain Krim. We were here for the first time, even it’s just half an hour drive from our home. 🙂 The view is nice.

There are also a lot of spring flowers. Probably it’s amazing here in the sunshine. Definetly we will go to mountain Krim one day. 🙂 It was one nice afternoon. 🙂
