Slovenia, spas & saunas

Monday morning - time to head over the border to a Slovenian spa.  30 mins later, we were in Catez, trying to work out which hotel or thermal riviera we should spend the day at.  Third try lucky, we found a spa which had indoor/outdoor pools, saunas and where you could get a massage - all for the grand price of £40.

Despite being in a hotel, there was none of the fluffy robes and slippers.  Instead, the saunas sported signs indicating one was not to wear pants so Vicki & I, definant in our swim suits, spent our sauna time dodging the decidedly overweight, elderly gentleman with spots on his bottom!  The outdoor pool was heaven with its hot thermal water while we were surrounded by snow.  I was even brave enough to go from sauna to outdoor plunge pool to sauna.  I think most people probably heard me when I entered that plunge pool - after being misled by Miss Bates that it really wasn't that bad, I had the shock of my life when I jumped in to find it was absolutely 100% freezing!!!

After a final night out - the one night I managed to stay awake past 10 pm, we woke early so I could make it back to the cathedral and the best cafe in the world, Amilie.  Despite just having finished breakfast, I indulged in yet another piece of cake and left armed with a box of macaroons to take back home, just to keep the memory alive a little bit longer!!!
