After the cave visit we head west. We are going to ride over to the Italian border and the Soca Valley, looking for accommodation as we go.
We soon find it in the little village of Ciginj near Tolmin. The Blue House is a lovely pension run by Valentin. We are soon made comfortable and after supper at the pizza house across the road we turn in after a tiring but interesting day.
