Three days ago I made nice winter ride. Around 200 km ( 120 miles) in with snow covered landscape in fully sunny weather at 5 C ( 23 F). The purpose of the ride was to get to our border and there welcome miss. Bernarda Pulko. She had returned home after 2000 days long ride on BMW 650 around the World.

I met Benka a few years back on her USA part of the trip. Amazing young lady. I'm happy she made it back after her adventure, safe and sound.

What a nice thing to do. Any word on what she will do now? It must be quite a shock to not ride further.

Her photos make me miss Slovenia.

After enduring the imaginable (and unimaginable) advertures and hardships of such an epic journey, it is amusing to note that the single complaint that kept coming up again and again in Ms Pulko's interviews was the bad service she got at U.S. BMW dealers.

For those that have not checked out her web site, this is an amazing journey by an amazing young woman. www.ardi.si/benka
