Novi Travnik to Ripci (49)
Bikes with huge mountains in the back at our stop after climbing in the heat.

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. We talked to our host the day before and he told us that there was a lot to see around Novi Travnik and in the south of Bosnia and Herzegovina in…

It was so nice to stay at you farm Dragan and Dragana - "Hvala"!

On our rest day at the "Eko agro Farma" we started slowly into the day. Our wonderful host prepared a breakfast for us with delicious self-made jam and ajvar🥰. Of course we also bought some of their products for our journey and got some Aronia juice as extra gift 👍. After breakfast we had to do some stuff on our…

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…

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.

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…
