Day 7 - Cycle Postojna to Ljubljana, Slovenia - Short and Sweet

Reaping the rewards of yesterday's uphill into the wind punishment we were surprised by a lovely 55 km downhill with a gentle tailwind. We arrived in Ljubljana in time for an early lunch. Reuben took the early check in as an opportunity for a nana nap while Anne-Marie got busy booking some entertainment.

A food and wine walking tour of the picturesque city centre with a crash course in Slovenian and Ljubljanan food, wine, history and politics was a delight. We followed this up with an escape room adventure, an hour racing the clock trying to solve challenging puzzles to break out of a series of rooms. Then on to Metelkova, the heart of Ljubliana's night club district, sort of an over the top punk, grunge Cats-the-musical set. It was a late night, and we'd kind of fallen in love with the city a little bit.
