streets in Croatia

it is not easy to cycle on the streets . most of the time they are only
in an acceptable condition for
cars but not for bikes. you have to be careful all the time especially if other trucks or cars overtake you. the rights side of the street is in a really bad condition. good to have a mirror on the bar ends.

arrival in Turanj

private room after 97 km

arrival in Zadok

guest at the fire department . unbelievable how friendly they are.

arrival in Kalsdorf south of Graz

it was partly dangerous to cycle on the B54. many trucks overtook me and it was not funny. Behind Gleisdorf it was much easier to cycle. more possibilities to watch the beautiful landscape of the Steiermark.

Arrival in Krems an der Donau

now, after 415km within four and a half day I arrived in Krems. I stay here at Susanne. I know her from my visit in Australia in 2007 and she is very lovely. She inspired me to live my dream. She is a Yoga-teacher and NUAD practitioner and she will help me to relax. until today it was a great trip. It is unbelievable, how friendly people are.  As a cyclist you always have an excellent possibility to contact other people and they are very interested in my story. Especially elder people are a little bit jealous of my decision to start a new life.
