Cycling from Ukraine to Lisbon. Day 13 - Maribor

Cycling from Ukraine to Lisbon. Day 13 - Maribor

December 2019 · 3 min read · Maribor

Day 13 was dedicated to fighting the hills. On 12% uphill I can cycle only stending and "dancing" on the pedals, with super slow speed.

Also, I'm spending a lot of time thinking about meaning of live, my place in the universe, finding the destiny and other "42" staff. So, when I stop to take a rest, I found myself sitting on that place for half an hour or even more. Sort of procrastination maybe.

In the early afternoon arrived to Murska Sobota, the town was small, I spent some time in the center and continued further.

Close to the evening reached Maribor.

Maribor is a pretty small town with historic centre , good for hanging out with people.

Shops sell marijuana with CBD. Found a strange place, maybe it's a squat. A lot of graffiti, and the monument to J.B. Tito - the leader of former Yugoslavia.

There was a music festival today. I arrived to the town but had no hosting opportunities. So, wild camped on the hill of the mountain outside Maribor. Official campside is more far from the centre - so, no reason to spend 12 euro.

Warmshowers works for me not so good in Slovenia - found no accomodation yet in any city. Same on couchsurfing - wrote requests to few people. they were online, but ignored me.

Ok, my wild overnight place was fantastic - really wild, with spring water not far, and almost no people to be worried about.

Загалом день 13 був присвячений боротьбі з пагорбами. Противні такі. На 12 градусів нахилу заїхати я можу лише стоячи на педалях і з швидкістю черепахи.

А ще, в мене знову загострився синдром пошуку сенсу життя, розмірковування про своє місце у всесвіті і чи існує якесь призначення, а якщо існує, то як його нарешті знайти.

Через це їду повільно, час від часу сідаю відпочити і хвилин на 30-годинку залипаю на місці.

Марібор - прикольне містечко з невеликим історичним центром. Тут, здається, люди приїжджають, щоб просто потусити.

В місті продають марихуану із CBD (канабідіолом). Сьогодні був якийсь фестиваль в центрі, грала гучна музика. Не знайшов варіантів вписки ( а відсутність соціальних навиків не дозволила піти в щось схоже на арт-сквот, на який натрапив випадково (із пам'ятником Тіто), блаблабла і домовився б. Але ні. Ночую на схилі гори за містом. Чудове місце, із джерелом води неподалік.

В Словенії Вормшаверс працює значно гірше. Поки що не знайшов жодної вписки у жодному із міст.

Couchsurfing - комерціалізована фігня із дивними юзерами (щоб не сказати гірше). Написав пару реквестів чувакам. Видно, що вони онлайн. А відповіді нема, навіть негативної.
