... option of cog train all the way down. There where two trains left for the day - 3:30pm or 4:30pm. Not wanting to hang around longer than needed, and being about 20 minutes away from the train station, we made a dash for it. And success! Made it.

And so welcoming too. Tomorrow we head into the (can it possibly be?) even more gorgeous Slovenia. Can't ...
