    Arrived in Croatia at the Adriatic Sea

    September 24, 2016 in Croatia

    Deutsche Version auf www.cyclingfornepal.com

    Six days ago, I started my journey alone again. My next big goal was Trieste/Italy on the Mediterranean Sea. First I wanted to make a few kilometers and had decided on a route with less uphills. So it took me about 600 km and 4000 meters of climbing to get to Rijeka/Croatia. My path went to Switzerland, back to Austria and several days through Italy. During my trip through Italy I cracked the 1000 km mark since my start in Munich. Yeah!

    At the Italian city of Trieste, which lies on the border to Slovenia, I visited a campground for the first time. There were also two cyclists from England and Lukas from Germany, who has hiked in 1.5 months the Alp Adria Trail. After the days where I was traveling alone, talking to somebody felt pretty good.

    When I camped in the outback, I found super nice places and it was no problem at all. Only in one night I had lain down without my sleeping bag in a park. Half asleep, I heard the collar of a dog strum. I straightened up and a Husky was 10 meters away from me. At first, we both did not know who was afraid of whom. But the Husky turned out to be very peaceful.

    Yesterday I set out in the pouring rain in Trieste/ Italy. Before me were laying 60 km through Slovenia and remaining 20 km to the Mediterranean in Croatia. My mood was good until I changed money at the Croatian border and the total mishap happened. I had forgotten to close my handlebar bag with all my electronics and after a short storm, the bag was completely under water. Fortunately, everything is still working.

     Now I am at a campsite right by the sea. Unfortunately the weather is rainy and the prognosis is not better.

    Today, I will only take a short stage and again consult a campsite to plan my further directions.

    So far, my trip is great fun and it runs just as I imagine it. Only the feeling not seeing my family and friends, is still in my mind.

     Cheers Janosch

    1. Segeltag nach Cres

    May 29, 2017 in Croatia

    Heute ging es los mit Segeln. Um ca. 11 haben wir die Marina verlassen mit gutem Wind und 7 Knoten. Aber bereits nach ca. 1h verebbte der Wind und wir mussten weitestgehend mit Motor ans Ziel fahren. Dafür war Zeit zum Baden im Meer, mit lustigen Sprungposen ^^

    Tag 2: Insel Lošinj

    May 30, 2017 in Croatia

    Die Sonne brezelt und Wind gibt es keinen. Daher sind wir heute mit Schnorchelstop in der "Blauen Grotte" zur Insel Lošinj in eine Bucht gefahren, eigentlich ausschließlich unter Motor.

    Die Nacht verbrachten wir in einer kleinen Bucht, kochten und erkundeten die anliegende Küste.

  • Day9

    Tag 4: Krk

    June 1, 2017 in Croatia

    Die Hoffnung auf Wind haben wir verloren, daher konzentrieren wir uns heute aufs Angeln. Wir fischen ein paar Sardinen und machen diese im Backofen mit Gemüserisotto.

    Die Nacht verbringen wir in einer verlassenen Bucht der Insel Krk.

    Tag 3: Ab nach Rab

    May 31, 2017 in Croatia

    Heute war wieder so gut wie kein Wind und gefühlt noch mehr Sonne ☀️

    Mit dem Motor fuhren wir durch einen kleine Enge in Mali Lošinj auf geradem Wege in die ACI Marina Rab auf Rab.

    Auch fischen wir täglich, aber es scheint nicht sonderlich viele Fische zu geben. Hochsee Angeltouren von den Häfen aus, fehlen ebenfalls.

    Ljubljana

    May 6 in Croatia

    Not entirely sure how I feel about this city, it is certainly the smallest capital I have ever been to. Today is flea market day along the side of the river Ljubljanka. There are plenty of statues of Christ on the cross, just in case you are down to your last one, and a great collection of up to date vinyl LP records, mostly British bands and artists but everything from Metallica to Samantha Fox. It is a real cafe society here and all the streets along the river are full of people having breakfast, coffee and cigarettes. The city itself has its moments in a kind of shabby chic sort of way, there are certainly plenty of photographers here who think so. I stop at a roadside cafe, as it is the only place not full of smokers, and order a local style meal of beef sausages and pancakes, a couple of beers help it go along. A tour guide with her pack of tourists pull up along side and the guide starts explaining the menu to them and gesturing to me by way of example, she is talking in Slovenian and I think roughly what she is saying is "look at stupid British tourist eating sausages made from dog food" or thereabouts.Everone laughs and moves on(they don't order any food).
    I don't want to put in too many gripes in the blog, but this is the most I have had to pay for a Vignette, a local road toll, 30 euro for seven days, and because of its location I may have to cross Slovenia more than twice, oh and 2.50 euro per person per night tourist tax, do they not realise that tourists are visiting of their own free will to spend money in their shabby chic city.

    Selce, Croatia

    May 10 in Croatia

    GPS threw a wobbly on me whilst trying to find a site in Crikvenica, and as I was struggling to find a place to stop and reset, I kept going along the coast as I recognised another name on the street signs. These coastal towns, be they Italy France Spain etc all seem to have at one time to have slid down their respective hills untill they are all bunched up beside the sea, along with their roads that get squished into single lane one way streets. Europeans are of course masters in the use of the hazard warning light which overrides all rules of the road and indeed common sense, as used by the driver in front of me who uses it at a junction on a pedestrian crossing on a one way street, classic.I'll just wait till you get your messages shall I? Already witnessed a classic piece of Croatian driving today when an impatient driver overtook me on a winding mountain road only to immediately indicate he is turning once in front of me, but the trump card(s) go to the two motorcycles overtaking him as he overtook me. My stomach is already in my mouth looking down at the sheer drop to the sea. Still all is forgiven arriving at the camp, it lived up to it's reputation, it is beautiful.Read more

    Selce day 2 by

    May 11 in Croatia

    Didn't see a lot of this town, I was asked to lend a hand (or battery in this case) to a fellow driver in need, we had a couple of beers during the course of the attempted repair (professional required), however this turned into drinks, then dinner which turned into 2am. Next day Stephen and Beth and neighbours showed me a bit of the town, including a large house, once planned to be a restaurant before the unpleasantness between Serbians, Bosnians etc(sorry but don't understand what really happened or how it came about) anyway this neighbour returned after things began to return to normal, to find their property had been occupied and trashed.The husband was heartbroken, fell into a depression and subsequently died, and the wife has neither energy nor money to rebuild, and so this house remains a lingering derelict and sad reminder of terrible times. In the spirit of Irony Stephen shows me a run down property near to the main Street, which just happens to be the former headquarters of the Communist party when they were having a go at Croatia, or whatever they called it. If ever there was a time for a coffee break this is it.Read more

    Nach guten drei Wochen 🚐💨 on the road und jeder Menge Blütenstaub 🌼🌸🌺 muss unser kleiner Dreckspatz endlich mal ein Schaumbad 🛁 nehmen.

    Kurze Recherche im Netz, wo es die nächste Waschbox gibt und los gedüst. Wir haben in Rijeka eine Waschstraße inklusive Self-Washing Boxen gefunden und so stehen wir jetzt in so einer Box und Finn 🚐 erhält eine Dusche 🚿 ... über vorwäsche, einschäumen und späteren trocken föhnen ist alles dabei!

    Nach seinem kurzen Ausflug in den Wellnessbereich glänzt Finn 🚐 wieder wie neu! 😍
