Chillout after Worlds

It was very hard job to keep train for Worlds. We were on the water every day almost 365 days a year! We were really looking forward to have it over. It is not easy to go for holiday for us because we just can’t lie on the beach. So we decided to go to Soča. We took our “long” boats instead freestyle kayaks. Soča is beautiful place and well know in between kayakers. We spent there few day and had a beautiful weather. Did some sections like Srpenica, Slalom course, Otona and even we went hiking to Kanin. We took a lift up there. The view there is awesome and you have a few options where you can go. We choose to look for Oko, which looks like window in the rock. I think it is about 2000meter so it was quite cold there. I guess it was just about 12 degrees and down in the valley it was about 25! Big difference :) Peter, like the most skilled one, took our non kayaker friend to Topo Duo kayak. It was a big fun! The only difficult think was to portage it down to the river. It was very heavy and long. Last day we went for quick run but it took for us more than we expected. We went just with one car so Peter drove it down and tried to hitch-hike. We were waiting in the put-in. I was worried because it took him quite long and after half and hour, when he showed up, I couldn’t believe that nobody took him. He run 12 km just in flip-flops and people, most of them were kayakers, ignored him! After his run he sprint down to gorge to river with kayak on the shoulder. I don’t know how he did this but me and our friend Capko, we barely walk (after the day before) and next day we had the biggest soreness ever...except Peter :)
