Reward view - cows in front of the wide area.

After just one night in our very big apartment we had to say goodbye to the beautiful city of Luzern. So like usually we had breakfast in the apartment, brought our bags downstaris, and got the bicycles ready. The weather was not that nice and it was very cloudy but at least it didn’t rain. When we left the city…

Göschenen to Luzern (74)
Crazy colour of the Göscheneralpsee.

After we climbed the highest point of our tour, we thought it was time for relaxing and of course to enjoy the Alps. Therefore, we stayed four nights in a very cute and comfortable apartment in Göschenen. Unfortunately the weather forecast was not so good. Just on our first day it shouldn’t rain that much, so we decided to go…

Bellinzona to Airolo (72)
The mighty Gotthardpass is in sight.

In Bellinzona we stayed for one day. We were still tired from the previous stages and we knew that the next two stages would be pretty hard. Thus, we just relaxed in our fancy tent for most of the day. In addition, Alina had some pain in her left foot so we also had to take care for it. Bellinzona…

Como to Bellinzona (71)
Flowers in front of the mountain range.

On our rest day in Como the first action point was getting a Covid test around the corner in the pharmacy. This was quite easy. Afterwards we discovered the city starting with a walk to the Porta Torre which also is the entrance into the old town. There we walked through narrow streets till we came to the “Basilica di…

Agrate Brianza to Como (70)
Rainy days are coming back!

Due to the long stage on the day before we chose to start a bit later. The Motel we stayed at provided an Italian style breakfast which consisted of a coffee and a croissant. Como was not that far so we thought that this would be enough. After breakfast we got the bicycles ready and during this we heard some…

After a relaxing night we had breakfast in our big kitchen and packed everything together afterwards. We were at the fifth floor but good for us that there was an elevator to bring down our bags.

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…

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.

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…
