Floods in Kostanjevica / Slovenia

with 2 comments

With huge delay I’m publishing pictures from floods that were happening last weekend in Kostanjevica, Slovenia. Also our Toyota 4×4 stuck in the water. This Toyota is actually a heavy duty proper terrain machine. It’s engine is waterproof, air is sucked from the pipe on the roof level and the engine was keep on going even if water was at window level. We had to stop because exhaustion gases were starting to get into the cabin. We were dragging a canoe behind us, so we rescued ourselves. Toyota is owned by Mladina weekly. They loved the pictures I brought back, so no harm done!

PS: Mladina has an old Fiat Punto and although I just persuaded them to buy me a Toyota 4×4, this pictures did ruin photographer’s “wet dream”. Marjan Jerele is the owner of the Toyota and is also a pilot of a hot air baloon. Actually he owns them few. If you need a great gift for your loved ones, call him. Half of my relatives already flew with him and all of them loved it totally. http://www.balonarstvo.net/
