Conza della Campania to Avellino (58)
Bikes in front of the wonderful view close to Montemarano.

On our rest day at Conza della Campania we wanted to visit the “Parco Storico e Archeologico di Conza” which was just a few hundred meters away. So we could walk to the park which was located on a mountain. This sight consists of the remains of the town Conza. On 23th November in 1980 a massive earthquake occurred in…

Rapolla to Conza della Campania (57)
Next problem - unsafe bridges...should we take the road?

Our rest day in Rapolla started with breakfast at another apartment of our host. It was just a 15 minutes walk and a bit outside of the Rapolla on a hill. But the breakfast was really good with fresh figs from their own trees. When we returned to our room we relaxed for some time and did some stuff at…

Stunning landscape seen from Montemilone.

On the rest day we started with breakfast on our veranda. It was a nice morning in the area close to the nature reserve Alta Murgia and it was not too hot. Afterwards we cycled into the city center of Corato which was around 8km far. We bought vine and olive oil in Croatia which we were not allowed to…

Bari to Corato (55)
Accurate planted olive trees - looks so nice.

On our last day in Dubrovnik we basically just waited for the ferry to Bari. We could stay in the apartment a bit longer but the next guests where coming on that day. Good for us that we could leave the bicycles there and pick them up later. We walked into the harbor and sat into a cafe for some…

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…

Trpanj to Slano (53)
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.

In this evil heat it was like always, we had to get up very early. The sun didn’t raise yet and we were sitting outside the tent and ate breakfast in the semi-darkness.

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…

Ripci to Tomislavgrad (50)
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…
