After our nice evening yesterday we got together for our last briefing and head out early to avoid a little the heat. In the morning the road toke us through the backcountry of Bosnia. At the coffee stop it was time to spent our last konvertible Marks. After a ride over some farmers roads we crossed back into Croatia for a big and cheap lunch stop. Some of us have to work out hard after this trip. After crossing the mountains back to the coast it was just a short ride back to Split.

Riding Day 4, traveling to Mostar in Bosnia
This day takes us to Mostar located in Bosnia, where we will spent a night! In the morning we started riding down the Jadrinska Magistrale. We had to earn our coffee today and climbed up the 3rd highest mountain in Croatia, but no worries we could use the bikes. After that we headed further south along the coast and went for lunch and a cool swim in Gradac. After that we crossed the boarder to Bosnia and a whole different country welcomed us. In Mostar we went for a city walk to the old town and everybody got a impression what happened in the city during the war. We were also able to watch the divers jumping from the Stari Most.
Terri found a new pet, maybe Chuck is bringing it home?

Riding Day 2, beautiful island Brac
Today we started a little earlier to catch the ferry to Brac. After the relaxing ferry ride we started our loop around Brac and had a nice coffee break in a lonely bay. Shortly before our lunch break we climbed up to the Vidova Gora which is the highest peak in the Adriatic sea. We spent our lunch break directly at the Zlatni Rat which is supposed to be the most beautiful beach in Croatia. Our couples from Dallas tried the water which was a little cold for them.
In the afternoon we road back on the east side of the island to the ferry.
