A happy bike-free time in Dubrovnik

A happy bike-free time in Dubrovnik
The entrance area - and all the greeting staff.

Because of the heat during the last stages we decided to stay ten days in Dubrovnik to regain energy. Also the motivation dropped a bit, so we thought a break might be usefull. Alina brought the bicycle to the repair shop due to the issue with the free hub. The part was broken and had be replaced. The problem was…

Slano to Dubrovnik (54)

We stayed just one night in Slano and stood up again pretty early because another hot day was waiting for us. The stage on the day before costed a lot of energy and we still felt the struggle in our bones and body (and mind...). But we already had booked an apartment for ten days in Dubrovnik because of the…

And further on - crazy views over the sea included :)

In Trpanj we spent three wonderful days without any cycling. Our camping ground was located next to the Adriatic sea, so Alina walked every morning from our tent into the sea (100 meter🤩) for a swim in the quietness of the early hours. Meanwhile Alex took the time for more sleeping. Later in the mornings we sat at the campsites…

Bikes in the morning - in front of the adriatic sea.

Tomislavgrad to Makarska (51)
Last view over the area from the mountain peak.

Our room had no air condition so we slept with an open window. Part of the Motel was also a 24h gas station and some car wash. From time to time there was loud noise and we hadn’t a good sleep. However, to avoid the heat in the afternoon we stood up early and had breakfast at our room. Afterwards…

Bikes with view on lake Ramsko jezero at Ripci.

On our rest day in Ripci at lake Ramsko jezero we needed still time to recover from the stage on the day before. So we started slowly into the day. Also there was a lot of rain and very strong winds (nice for photos😁, and quite cozy in our apartment). However, unfortunately the conditions were not suitable to take a…

Due to the expected heat during the day we again stood up pretty early. After breakfast in our bed and getting everything ready we started our stage around 6:30.

Lužani Bosanski to Žepče (47)
Looks beautiful - but it is the wrong way... we will know some minutes later.

As planned we stood up very early and got everything ready for the stage. We found a bicycle route online which should led us through Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Adriatic Sea. But first we needed to cycle onto this route. We followed the main street and after some kilometers our navigation showed us to turn into a gravel road,…

Slavonski Brod to Lužani Bosanski (46)
Terrace - parking spot for the bikes.

On our rest day in Slavonski Brod we first had to check when and where we could make a Covid test. We found out that there was a hospital just a few hundret meters away, where you could perform a test. The instructions for paying were not clear for us on the website, so we went there to clarify. And…
