Cycling in Split, Croatia.

Croatian coast

Still in Croatia, we enjoy the quiet life on the islands. There are many islands in Croatia, unfortunately we will not be able to do all of them. The tourists on site are only Germans or Austrians and the Croats speak to us only in German.

51st Day, Wednesday 11 October, departure from Valun Bay (on the island of Cres) for the island of Lošinj,(accessible by road): 50 km travelled.
