Hi, my name is Markus, i`m a 47 year old german and this is not a real ridereport, because the bike is riding on a trailer from Germany to Croatia.
this has two reasons. first, my bike is a 2003 MZ Baghira and second, my wife has a huge beautycase
So we run with our Volkswagen an the MZ on back to our first location, the island of Cres. A island with fantastic landscape a some unpaved roads in the north
Our first stop was Valun, a small Village, only one road from the hill to the harbour, no cars allowed, instead of suppliers.
view from the hill
the harbour, only 50 m long, four restaurants and one cafe
first time on the bike. view from Cres (near Beli) in the back is the island Krk
a short video, the street to beli. sorry my videos are without music, without sectacular stunts ....
in front the new road and the cobblestone old road with a wooden bridge in the back
the expression says "no, not really"
later on, crusing around, i found the old cobblestone road, maybe centuries-old
if you are riding on, this road goes direct to the village of beli, you will be arriving next to the restaurant. ... if looks could kill
about a third of the northern part from Cres is a fenced nature park. last breeding habitat of eurasian griffon.
the gate of the habitat was open, but for me, of course it was end of the road.
but ... there was along the outside a track. a real endurotrack, 2mls down the sea. and at the end of the track, there were to new houses, only accesible with boat or over the track i came.
the way back along the fence
this village, 4 houses, 10 mls apart from the next paved street is called Ivanje
another village, called Niska. i want to buy this house, but there was no one around to ask.....
nearby Filozici, an artist is working with wood. nice idea in the outback, far away from any road
somewhere in the forest.
later, on the street, a nice view to the capitol city, named like the island Cres
typical mediterranean harbour
fresh friuts for the tourists
and there is a unpaved track from Cres to Valun, were our B&B was. 10mls through oilve grove, not really ambitious but nice to ride, fantastic view
bay of valun
oh markus, open and close cattlegates, don`t overrun them... :-)
thanks for watching, more soon, if you want
