Krapje to Slavonski Brod (45)
Unicycle in Novska on our way to Slavonski Brod.

Our alarm clock ringed at 4:30 pretty early in the morning. We did need a few more minutes but then we stood up. Our host left us some breakfast in front of our room door because we told him the day before we wanted to leave pretty early and before breakfast time. This was very kind. After breakfast we packed…

A stork ready to fly :)

When we woke up in our apartment in Sisak we started our routine. Breakfast, packing bags and making the bicycles ready. Everything worked fine and we could start our stage quite early. We wanted to continue cycling along the river Sava on minor streets. We planned to have another stop before we will come to Slavonski Brod where we wanted…

Zagreb to Sisak (43)
The mountain of trash - not possible to push the bike over it alone.

In Zagreb we planned to have two rest days. So on our first day it was time for some bicycle care. So we cleaned chain, cassette, gears and breaks. Alex got a new bottle holder and replaced the rear brake pads. Alina replaced the chain at her bike and all brake pads. We were in a private apartment and the…

Vinica to Zagreb (42)

We didn’t sleep that well the night before the stage, so we started the day a little later. Today’s goal was the capital of Croatia – Zagreb. To get there we followed a bicycle route called "nationalna ruta 2". The last five kilometers on the previous stage we already followed this route and from that we knew there are no…

Maribor to Vinica (41)

Maribor will be our only stop in Slovenia, so of course we had to make a rest day and explore the city. But first thing first. The camping ground was well equipped so we used the washing machine to clean our clothes. Meanwhile we ate our breakfast. When we were ready we bought some bus tickets to get to our…

Bad Radkersburg to Maribor (40)
Exhausted after the tough climbing after the border.

After so many nights at hotels and apartments we did not sleep that well in our tent the night before this stage. But this is nothing a good breakfast can’t cure. So when we finished eating we got our things together and were ready to roll. The “Thermenradweg” came to end at Bad Radkersburg and so the local name of…

Hello Mr. Ostrich?

After the two tough stages in a row on the days before we used our apartment in Fürstenfeld just for relaxing and regained some energy. We only left to go to the supermarket and get some supplies for the stay and also for the next stage. Also we used the time to do some stuff at our notebooks. Before we…

The Bad Bumau wheel of life.

In the morning our legs and body hurt after this challenging stage the day before. We needed time to regain energy so we had our breakfast at 9. After this we got the bikes ready. We also had a friendly chat with our host who was born in Poland. So of course we talked about our beautiful stages in Poland…

Wien to Mönichkirchen (37)
Alex fighting the last meters to a farm, where we ask for water.

We planned to stay three nights at our hotel in Wien. And of course, the first day we needed for recovering from the heat stage on the day before. We slept long and relaxed a lot. We only left the hotel for lunch at some vegan/vegetarian restaurant and went to the supermarket. On the second day our energy was refilled,…

Valtice to Wien (36)
Nicest field of sunflowers :)

At night before the stage a thunderstorm occurred. We woke up from heavy rain and bright lightnings. But after some time it ended and we could sleep a bit more. After standing up in the morning everything was wet. So we started with breakfast in the kitchen of the creepy hostel. The sun was shining when we started to pack…
