Along the wire.

by

A very special memorial walkway around Ljubljana gets crowded each year in the begining of May, as a remembrance of the city liberation on 9th May, 1945. Marked by signposts, information boards and metal markers on the ground, it follows once wired route that limited Ljubljana during World War 2. The Trail along the wire – also called The Trail of Remembrance and Comradeship – is almost 33 km long path, leading all around the city, past Koseze and across the Golovec Hill, offering a great way to spend a sunny Saturday.

Almost 8 hours of walking, sun, icecream, great company and a memorial medal for Oto.

After some hesitating – after all, this is a long walk and our vizsla boy is still a puppy, learning to walk properly on leash – we took the plunge and started our walk in Koseze at 8am. This was our first time taking the Trail along the wire and we sure made the right decision. Special thanks to my girlfriends who encouraged and invited us to come along! We took it easy and had a lot of fun. We picked up coffee-to-go for a good start, enjoyed the sun (but honestly, chilly shadows even more), took few breaks and treated ourselves to some icecream on the way. Oto was such a good boy, I couldn’t be more proud. At the end we received memorial medals for walking the entire distance and collecting stamps at all eight checkpoints. Even a few days later, Oto still wears his own and is proudly showing it off.

    Čestitke za vaš pohod, še posebno Otkotu za njegovo potrpežljivost in vztrajnost – si res zasluži medaljo:)

      Res je! :) Zelo priden je bil, čeprav smo šli po njegovem verjetno malo prepočasi … 😉
