Day 5 – Kotor to Mostar to Split – 225 miles
Great view, great weather, incredible ride from Kotor into Bosnia. Average food. Still a whole day to enjoy the coast road back in Croatia and on to Split.
Early start leads to stunning views, stunning roads, and not a car in sight
The new “old” bridge in Mostar
Full English breakfast, Bosnian style, in the old town alleyways near the bridge
This was just after entering Bosnia, where the customs officer at the border said, “British? Ha ha! Breexeet! Big mistake ha ha ha! Have nice day”….
The sensational Croatian coast road heading north towards Dubrovnik and Split – flat-out biking heaven
Day 6 – Split to Lake Bled – 325 miles
Not much of a ride, but an incredible view from the hotel room, and afternoon enjoying the lake, and dinner on the balcony as the sun sets.
View from hotel room at Lake Bled, Slovenia
Dinner on the balcony at sunset
Day 7 – Bled to Davos via the Grossglockner and the Stelvio – 400 miles
Can’t beat an early morning ride to get somewhere interesting for breakfast. Such as the Grossglockner pass, currently empty apart from me and some furry little gofers that seem intent on running under my wheels.
Apfel strudel and coffee for breakfast at the Grossglockner
Sunrise at Lake Bled. Apfelstrudel at the Grossglockner pass. Bratwurst at the Giovo pass. “Warme kuche” at the Stelvio pass. Schnitzel at the Davos Hilton. Got to love Slovenian lakes, Austrian mountains, Italian hairpin bends, German food, Swiss hotels, and of course, German motorcycles.
