Cycling across borders – Slovenia, Austria, Italy

Just back from a week on holiday in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. A little hiking but mainly cycling. Kranjska Gora is in the north-west of the country, close to the borders with Italy and Austria. I’ve crossed borders within the Schengen area before, of course, but never with the frequency I did on this trip – a couple of routes went through all three countries. There was a lot of climbing in the Julian Alps, including the Vršič Pass (also known as the Russian road), with 50 hairpins up and down, and the highest at 1611 metres, and the Wurzen Pass between Slovenia and Austria both ways. The Wurzen Pass from Austria to Slovenia was the hardest climb, with some long stretches of tough gradient, though doing that in a thunderstorm didn’t help.

With the Canguilhem book wrapped up just before I left, I’m now dealing with some small things and then, finally, back to the work on The Early Foucault.
