Plitvicer Waterfalls

It was wonderfull to ride the bikes without lugage. We made day trips and had a look at many different countrysides. Croatia is great for bikeriding. The streets up in the hills are very good, with lots of grip. They also have thousands of gravel roads and dirttracks....

Very pretty are the Plitvicer Waterfalls. They are famous and lots of tourists are arround. But that didn't matter to us. Again we noticed how friendly the people were. We did not have to pay for parking the bikes, they stored our helmets and stuff for free and we stayed 4 houres instead of 1 to have a look at the nature. Those coulors were amazing!!

On our way back to the basecamp - Hans-Dieter was riding in front - in one of the many switchbacks a car came frontal on Hans-Dieters lane.
That car crashed into him head-on. Hans-Dieter managed to lay the bike on the side and kind of jumped away.

So at least only the bike crashed with te car and Hans-Dieter could glide over the tarmac....
