Leaving Slovenia

We left Slovenia on Tuesday after visiting the Karst caves at Postojne. We reached the main chamber on a little train that travelled about 2 kms into the mountain through a series of halls filled with stalactites, stalagmites and grand columns. We spent about 90 minutes wandering through the cave system on firm concreted walkways. This is apparently Slovenia’s top tourist attraction.


We had lunch at the restaurant belonging to the stud which bred Lipica horses. These are bred for dressage competitions and although born dark grey, they soon become white (or a light grey colour).


The rest of our day was spent travelling. When we reached Venice, our bags were loaded into a ‘bag boat’ and we travelled on a series of motor launches to our hotel, the ‘Gritti Palace’. This was in a superb location – just 200 metres from St Mark’s Square. Before dinner, we wandered into the square and around some of the little local streets.
