EXPEDITIA BIKE EUROPA 2014 - EPISODUL 18 - THE AMAZING BOSNIA
This river is perfect for motorboats.
I keep on climbing till I get to a scenic lake.
Then I have to cope with some hairpins. But the view from the top is rewarding and enchanting.
I arrive at Makljen pass which is in BIG Challenge Club`s list.
Here I have wi-fi for free so I will stay at this chalet where I will indulge in good food.
Inside the chalet I notice interesting hunting` trophies.
The owner allows me to put up my tent on the enclosed space of the chalet on some great lawn.
The next day I have a long descent till Bugojno where I stop to eat and then I visit an interesting cemetery.
From here I carry on cycling on E661 enjoying lovely scenery.
Soon I get hungry and I stop at a restaurant where I fill my belly with a delicious roasted beef with fresh salad.
The next town I pass by is Jajce.
I will spend the night sleeping behind a motel on my sleeping bag near Vrbas River, but before I go to sleep I enjoy a nice evening together with some motorbikers from Czech Republic and I receive sour soup and beers for free from the very kind-hearted owner of the motel who is impressed by my cycling trip. Here I see some fish of great quality and size.
The next day I cycle along the Vrbas River.
This river is quite impressive, too.
All of a sudden I see a small hydropower station.
It's wonderful to cycle in such a beautiful place!
I Banja Luka I stop to visit the town. I see here some great churches and a good man gives me a small donation after hearing my story.
This is my lucky day, I find some nice people that give me good food and let me spend the night in front of their house in my sleeping bag.
The next day on my way to Gradiska I can see a spectacular tiny mosque.
After less then 2 hours of cycling I get to Croatia where I will stop in Daruvar to go to a thermal spa and after enjoyng myself a few hours in the hot water I go to the restaurant and order spaghetti carbonara.
