A bay on the Croatian coast

More of the same today. More of the same amazing scenery.

A highlight for today was the 9kms or so of Bosina that I cycled through. This coastline is not all Croatian. There still remains a little sprout of Bosnia that you need to go through. There are border controls and everything. Unfortunately I didn’t get a stamp in mz passport. I forgot to ask for one. In general, this 9km stretch didn’ seem as developed as the rest of the Croatian coast. Many more buildings under construction.

It was a long day today. One of those days when I was thinking of the future. Too much of that carry on is bad for the mind, I decided. From mid afternoon onwards I listened to the radio on the small radio thing I got in Istanbul. That kept me going for the rest of the day.

I arrived in Gradac at dusk, and went for a wander along some of the walking tracks, looking for landmines to throw stones at, until I realised that I wouldn’t be able to see them. Probably more effective if I just rolled along the ground on my stomach lengthwise…

    Nice progress! I`ve heard there are some very nice camp sites around that lakes you`ve photographed.

    Coast road through Bosnia is really nothing special, but the city of Neum can be very interesting and alive, especially in summer months.
