In the night there is a thunderstorm. Above the karst the lightning flashes and thunder comes from Portoroz – about 120 per second. Luckily I am an experienced Ohropax sleeper by now! 🙂 After a few kilometres along the sea I am at the border. But what is that? Border controls! Both when leaving Slovenia . . .
Actually it is not far anymore. I probably overestimated the rest of the way and my plane doesn’t leave Pula until Thursday. So I still have a lot of time. And I take it in the morning so that the sun has a chance to take the wet night from the tent before I pack . . .

Different from what I thought yesterday, the high mountains, above all the Boč with its striking pyramid shape and the unmissable transmission mast on its summit not to the right but to the left of me. That means I have to go through somewhere. But fortunately the landscape widens the closer I get to the . . .
Why did I want to go to Mureck yesterday? There is another ship mill here. Or better said: again. It was built in 1997, true to the original and functional.
