In Austria I stayed in a camping in the Klagenfurt area (Maltschach). It was raining all the way from Heiligenkreuz to Maltschach, so no photos from this area.
Next day I made a trip to Slovenia to visit Skocjanske and Postojna caves, which are indeed really spectacular.
I chose the following route: Klagenfurt-Loiblpass-Ljubljana-Postojna-Skocjan (using A2 and A1 in Slovenia) and back on the route Skocjan-Postojna-A1-Ljubljana-A2-Jesenice-Kranjska Gora-Tarvisio-Villach-Maltschach

Thanks!Yes, Postojna is really fantastic. You should also visit Skocjan caves, you will be surely impressed, there is an underground canyon of 90m height inside the cave. You pass on a bridge over the river, that is 45m under you. It should also be noted that the slovenes knows how to make tourism.

Next day, we've visited Venice but unfortunately I have no photos, as I was the driver of the day. We travelled through austrian A2, italian A23 and A4, towards Venice. Back I used a different route, in order to clinch some mountain passes in The Dolomites. So we went back from Venice on the more spectacular route: Venice-A27-Longarone-Forno di Zoldo-passo Forcella-Staulanza-Passo Giau-Cortina d'Ampezzo-Misurina-Dobiacco-Lienz-Spittal an der Drau-Villach-Maltschach. This was a great day, with Venice and the mountains in schedule.

Then, on 28th of September, we left the camping in Maltschach for a gasthof in Eben in Pongau. The route was fantastic, we travelled via Grossglocknerstrasse.

Thank you

I was impressed that at Skocjan and Postojna they gave us papers and informations about many other interesting tourist spots in the area. It seems to me like an integrated way of doing tourism, which is very good. However I was dissapointed when somebody told me there is no permanent guide at Divaca cave, which I heard it's also pretty impressive. You have to call someone to guide you if you want to see that cave.
