Already the last riding day of a fabulous tour, we‘re heading back to Austria to our starting location in Klagenfurt.
For the first time we would need to use our rain gear to leave the hotel.
After a shortcut on the highway to avoid the most raining area we arrived in Kranj for lunch.
Once back at the bikes the weather cleared up and we were blessed with best riding weather for the second half of the day, just a perfect way to end a perfect tour.
Today we leave Croatia again and riding back to Slovenia.
Our ride took us through a less frequented area where you think time stood still for the last
Today’s rest day, was all but not a rest like laying back and relaxing.
In fact we got up quite early to have breakfast while Bruce and Tom went to purchase the tickets for the entrance to the park.
After breakfast we all went for a hiking tour through one of the most beautiful national parks the planet has to offer.
After a few hours walking through this amazing nature reserve and having a quick lunch, the group was ready for a short ride out into the less frequently visited backcountryside.
Nice little and almost empty roads took us along some spectacular landscapes.
At some places reminders of the civil war where still visible.
Today we have another 300km ride ahead of us, we will head for the beautiful national park around the plitvicka lakes.
First we will have to cross the peninsula before we follw the coastline til Senj where we have dinner and maybe a refreshing dip into the adriatic sea.
After this we have to say goodbye to the seaside while heading into the mountains on more twisty and narrow roads to reach todays destination near the plitvicka lakes!
Rest day doesn‘t means leaning back and checking out the wellness area, at least not for this group.
Today we go out and explore the beautiful roads of the Istria peninsula...
Get lost they said and you might find a hidden treasure...
Two border crossings on todays shedule, that sounds a good plan for the first day.
We will leave austria and cross through slovenia to end up in croatia. Over 300km waiting for us.
Alot of twisties, hairpins, narrow and wide roadsare ahead of us, i think that might be right way to stat this adriatic rollercoaster tour!
See you later!
