“Travels to a Different Time”: 8August1973: Zadar and Ljubljana, Yugoslavia : Spectacular 8 Hour Bus Ride: A Kitchen to Myself

Up at six in the morning and there was some moisture in the tent. Dew? Had leftover grapes for breakfast and had an ice-cold shower (no choice). I went to the campground store and bought some stale rusks for breakfast. I went into town and bought a bus ticket to Ljubljana. Loaded up on food for the 8-hour trip. What a spectacular trip up in the hills with deep gorges and gushing streams. We are taking a break up in these beautiful hills and I hear Neil Young singing about Northern Ontario. Surreal! We arrived in Ljubljana at 6 p.m. so it was too late to make it to Bled and the tourist office sent me to the University where I could stay in a residence. It is a huge residence with its own kitchens. Eggs and beans for a delicious dinner. Boy even loads of hot water. What a great hot shower. Off to bed. I must stay a day here.
