during the rain storm I took my back pack and laid my head on it complete with helmet and took a little cat with the one piece rain suit I was dry and warm for the most part.

I heard that split in Croatia was cool so I asked for a ferry to split but the ferry would alternate between zadar and split and that night it was going to zadar so I really didn't care I could just drive to split. I got on the ferry bid fair well to Italy and went out. Same as the ferry to France it left at night and arrived 7 am the next morning. But this time I found a sofa in the lounge and slept there instead of the floor.

last look at Italy


sun coming up near Croatia

I would say I lucked out with the zadar ferry. He 2 your drive to split was along the coast. It was a nice drive.

once in split I decided I needed to have my rear tire taken care of so asked around in town and one person recommended I go here. They are the largest dealer in all Croatia and had two different tires that would fit my bike.

while in Croatia I decided to go south to dubvronick the go east into Bosnia towards Bulgaria. I was thinking i would have a great ride along the coast as I went south from split. That was a big mistake the ride was hot and it was tourist season so I got stuck behind rv's or caravans. I would be lucky if I ever hit 40 mph. Once I got to the Bosnia border the Croatian police wouldn't let me leave because I did not have proper insurance.

Here I am at the border trying to get into Bosnia. My motorcycle did not have the right insurance for Bosnia or Croatia so I had to buy new insurance on the spot.

Enjoying your report. Good to see you have a minimal approach to luggage.
Looking forward to the next addition.
