TripAdvisor Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Continental Udine
Travel Blogs from Udine
Today we picked up a rental car and headed for the mountains! As with many rentals, we got something bigger than we reserved because that was what they had...it's not too big though, and so far it has treated us well. Grant is getting back into the hang of driving a stick shift and Bonnie is navigating us through the mountain roads. The scenery today was just beautiful. So much green! We saw tons of paragliders and a few hang gliders ...
... icy waters and plant my buttocks onto the white stone beach. Triglav Nestled amongst the summer flowers and bumble bees with their cosy fur coats, I lay on a bed of greenery. Sounds of water in the distant, birds creating a mountain song and countless Motorcyclists racing as if in the Grand Prix.

Group dinner in Kobarid. Trout, pasta, ice cream w/pumpkin seed oil. Buddy talks.

Boat just becoming ship shape on Friday and everything tucked away when final checks on instruments made us realise there was no speedo. A quick check identified we had to run a new cable - easier said than done!!! 4 hours later we had removed every panel, cushion and floor ...
