TDST2017 – Day4: Ljubljana <3

An early start yet again. Today, instead of a clear and blue sky, we’re greeted by heavy humidity and 30m visibility. Packing our TWIKE, we shiver with 9°C and the fog getting everything humid within minutes.   Thankfully, the drive to the ferry is only 5 minutes – this doesn’t change the fact that we […]

TDST2017, TW560’s second pan-European trip in 2017

As you might already know, the Austrian part of my family meets up once a year in Styria for a few days of catching-up, eating good food and drinking Styria’s very drinkable white wine. We from Switzerland have been taking part for over a decade now and wouldn’t want to miss this event for nothing […]
