    Bucht von Kotor/Montenenegro

    May 7 in Montenegro

    Heute morgen klingelte der Wecker um 6.00 Uhr morgens, zwei Stunden früher als geplant. 😴 Jede Stunde Schlaf mehr auf dem Schiff ist wie Wochenende!

    Doch der wenige Schlaf hat sich mehr als gelohnt. Der Anblick war traumhaft die Sonne hat geschien und der Blick war dadurch traumhaft ☀️😍

    Als wir in die Bucht einfuhren, kam von der kleinen Burg Delfine auf uns zu geschwommen, dass Empfangskommite 😅😊Read more

  • Day401

    ... zwei Tage zuvor hieß es 1.000 Stufen musst du gehen. Heute waren es dann mal 1.400 Steile Stufen oder wahlweise Geröll😓 8€ mussten wir für die Plackerei auch noch zahlen.

    Doch es hat sich gelohnt, schon der Aufstieg mit den atemberaubenden Ausblicken, waren unbezahlbar. Es waren zwar gefühlt 30 Grad und Sonne pur und wirklich Schweißreibend aber besser als Regen 😉

    Als wir nach 40 Minuten oben ankamen, trafen wir Julian der schon das 8 mal dort oben war und daher alle geheimen Wege kannte. Doch dieser war wirklich suspekt, wie sind durch ein Fenster der alten Stadtmauer gestiegen um eine steile Felsenwand runter klettern um zu einer kleinen Kapelle zu gegangen, in dem ein Esel wohnte - verrückt. Auf dem Weg hab es noch lauter Ziegen und Katzen. So schön😍

    Doch das beste kam noch. Wir sind noch ein Stück weiter hoch um in einer kleinen Hütte Essen zu gehen. Frischer Ziegenkäse stand auf dem kleinen Holzschild. Als wir dort ankamen, stolperte uns schon ein betrunkener Wirt entgegen, mit schlechtem Englisch. Doch Gastfreundlich war er wirklich. Es gab frischen Ziegenkäse, einen Schnaps und trocken Brot. Es ähnelte 'Dinner for One" herrlich dieser Typ

    Cat and Mouse Game

    October 12, 2016 in Montenegro

    Deutsche Version auf: www.cyclingfornepal.com

    My anticipation was great. Finally I went to a country which I had not visited yet... Montenegro. After I had passed the border without problems, the road led directly to the city Herceg-Novi at the sea. Instead of talking the busy coastal road, I cycled up a lonely mountain road, whereupon a descent to the sea followed. The detour was really worth it. A great view and a fun descent. After coming down, I was completely exhausted. Luckily there was a campsite where I pitched my tent.

    After a two day break I took a ferry to the other side of the river. I came into conversation with a travel group from Scotland and made advertising for the donation project.

    Then I went some kilometers along the coast, past hotels and tourist places. In the afternoon I made a swivel in the direction of Lake Jezero. But I should not be able to see them until the next day, because there were almost 800 m of climbing before me. Just in time for the dusk, I arrived at the pass and found a plateau 100 meters further, which was perfect to spend the night. The place was very special. I had a great 360 degree view of the mountains and the sea.

    In the meantime, it is getting dark very early. But I am usually so K.O., which I immediately fall asleep as soon as I lie down. After the meal I shoot a few photos and then go to sleep. So also this evening. After a short time, however, I heard sounds as if something were sneaking around my tent. I figured it was a Capricorn, and I was talking wildly to scare the animal. But the sounds did not stop. Armed with my torch, I crawled out of the tent and peered a fox. But he did not let himself be distracted by my lighthouse and looked at me in amazement. To scare him, I threw a stone next to him (not at him). A little later, however, he reappeared. The cat and mouse game had begun. But unfortunately I was in the case the cat. I threw at least 5-6 stones, but the fox always appeared again. Then he even tried to steal my sweaty bikeshorts. At the last moment I threw a stone and he let off the pant. Tormented, I grabbed all my stuff into the tent and went to sleep, with the hope that the next day air will be still in the tires.

    Fortunately, my bike remained undisturbed, so I started the next morning towards Jezero Lake. From there, a hilly road led along the lake to Albania. The lake with its many small islands is definitely a must-see, if one travels to Montenegro.

    In the late afternoon, I crossed the border to Albania and noticed after crossing, that some things are quite different here. But more to that in the next entry.

    Ride on.

    June 21, 2017 in Montenegro

    Eine Woche einfach relaxen wir hier mit meinem Cousin Emil, seinen Eltern und zum Teil auch mit Tante Rina und Onkel Pille.

    Kotor the cat capital

    April 28 in Montenegro

    Kotor is a town in Montenegro that reminds me of a Norwegian Fjord. We only had a half day here and there is not a great deal to see here as this port is a relatively new entry to the cruising calendar. Apparently Kotor is known for its cats, although i think I saw more in Dubrovnik.

    There was a fortress you could walk up to but at 1350 steps on an uneven path, I decided to let Brad have the privilege of doing the climb (charged him €8 too). He said it was fairly strenuous and at one point he was crawling up on his hands and knees ( so he says, although he didn't take a photo of that bit so he may be exaggerating???). I found myself a cafe with WiFi so i could send emails and my blog.

    Bought a couple of small souvenirs, wandered along the city walls (all these old European cities seem to have walls surrounding them), back on the ship and sailed out. Next port is Venice and as I am writing this we are just cruising into Venice and it looks amazing!!!

    Montenegro

    October 14, 2016 in Montenegro

    Stayed the night in Hercegnovi before heading on towards the bay of Kotor this morning. The road runs right around the edge where the steep mountains meet the sea. We could literally feel the hot winds meeting the cold wind as we cycled along towards Kotor and are now watching an incredible lightening storm from our bedroom window.
    Tasted some delicious weird pastry roll thing full of fruit and syrupy stuff en route this morning and just had an amazing sea food platter for din dins! Uh ohhhh. Diet starts tomorrow, obviously.Read more

    Tivat

    October 15, 2016 in Montenegro

    We continued our cycle round the bay of Kotor which was incredibly beautiful and ended in the The Monaco of the Adriatic, Tivat. This towns exclusive harbour and marina are very different to the surrounding area, as a few billionaires have invested heavily in the area. This is our last stop in Europe before we flying back for some R&R.

    Kotor, Montenegro

    August 13, 2017 in Montenegro

    Kotor could be the most beautiful location that we have ever visited. We went up to the very top of the mountain range over extremely narrow roads. We sampled local food at two different village restaurants and visited Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Camping an der Bucht von Kotor

    April 4 in Montenegro

    Nach 92km (dank des "Grenzumweges") und dem einen oder anderen Höhenmeter erreichen wir am Abend unseren angestrebten Zeltplatz. Zuvor hatten wir und gegen eine Abkürzung mit der Fähre und für die Umrundung der Kotorbucht entschieden. Eine gute Wahl! Auf dem Campingplatz zeltet noch ein weiteres Radel-Pärchen, die beiden sind allerdings schon seit drei Jahren unterwegs und haben bereits beeindruckend viel auf der Welt abgeradelt.Read more

    Zeltplatz mit Panoramablick

    April 6 in Montenegro

    Den Morgen haben wir mit den Zeltnachbarn "verquatscht", so kommen wir erst um 11 Uhr los. Nach 10km ebener Strecke beginnt dann unsere Tagesaufgabe, es soll bis auf 1400m den Berg hinauf gehen. In 32 Serpentinen schlängeln wir uns nach oben, hin und wieder fällt etwas Regen, aber die Aussicht ist fantastisch und wird mit zunehmender Höhe immer beeindruckender. Auf 1100m bietet sich ein wunderbarer Platz zum Zelten und und so beschließen wir, den Rest des Tages auf morgen zu vertagen.Read more
