Croatian penisula Istria is not only sea
For autumn season last year we are planned a short trip to the old military roads on the border between Austria - Italy - Slovenia, but for unfavorable weather forecast I had to come one day before departure up with plan B.
The coast Croatian peninsula of Istria is known, but what it is in the inland of Istria?
We was six bikes and seven people.
