Slovenia 6 June: Ljubljana - Maribor

the countryside of Slovenia

We left Ljubljana and made our way through the hills of Slovenia.

...a highly welcome second breakfast along the road...

At noon we reached Celje. Runners fom the II Osnovna - school Celje met us on our way to their school.

The kids lined up for an enthusiastic welcome.

The II Osnovna - school Celje is already a bank on our runs through Slovenia. Many kids remember the Peace Run and participated in former years...

Thank you for the friendship and hospitality!

We are looking forward to return as soon as possible. Thanks for the fun!

...animal time...

The I Osnovna - school Celje school was next.

We met the kids on the sport field....

...poems...

...to find a school representative for the certificate can be sometimes a real challenge...

Thanks for the nice meeting!

...the flame burns quite strong. Its not so easy to blow it out...

After a nice rain-shower we reached Slovenske Konjice. It's a really lovely city...

...a city representative welcomed us....

..despite the heavy rain that made all people on the main square disappear, the girls performed for us very well. Thanks for the effort!

...we left a souvenir in the city...

In the evening we reached Maribor. We visited an old friend of the Run. Thank you Villa Rustica for hosting the team!
