Cross-country flight: Notranjska
( Ljubljana Brnik - Bled - Bohinj - Idrija - Logatec - Grosuplje - Ljubljana - Ljubljana Brnik )
July 26th, 2006

Leaving in the morning, it was rather hazy that day, visibility wasn't the greatest, but otherwise weather was perfect for flying, and wind was completely calm. A short flight took us over one of the most notorious tourist points of Bled and Bohinj, down south to our hometown of Logatec, and over the capital Ljubljana for some city landscape on the return to Brnik airport.
