We camped at Lake Bohinj for a couple of days and enjoyed a lovely canoe trip on the lake and home cooked 'camping' meals beside the river on the stove. We left Lake Bohinj travelling past Lake Bled and north, but to where? There was a famous mountain pass we hadn't seen and decided to detour west and
then back south over this to camp somewhere on the far side. It was getting late but the pass was good fun with many corners named and numbered although many were cobble stones - not so fun but at least it was dry. We then found our best campsite of the trip in the Soca valley near the river gorge, with lovely walks and a large under cover fire area for the evenings. We woke on our last day to hammering rain but at least had the fire area to organise our things in the dry before loading the bike and riding off via another pass out of Slovenia into Italy. It rained all the way to Munich (my wife was frozen) but then dried out by the time we reached Ingolstadt where we camped for the night. The next day we had an enjoyable walk around the town before heading for our regular stop off campsite at Wertheim, beside a river, where we can easily reach the ferry the next day and home, until the next time...
