travelling with car to Istra (Rijeka) and with train back to maribor
21.07.2009 - 22.07.2009 30 °C
We decided to move to Rijeka in Croatian Istra which is only 250km away from my home town. Because Marko insisted to take old "magistrala" road we spent almost whole day for travelling (465 km). When we arrived we found a cheap but nice hotel and eat dinner there. we were so tired from all car driving that we sleept like babies.
Bought a one way ticket to Maribor in the morning. Still had some time so we went to drink a coffe in swimming center. after that Marko drove me to train station where we say goodbay. I prepared my bike for transport and waited for train which brought me back home.
For sure the best holiday ever. Maybe I was overdoing it on very first trip of this kind, because I saw that it is not so simple to travel with fully loaded bike, althou I was well prepared. In the end I had 7 herpeses on my mouth which is total record. My knees got better after one week of resting. After that I was on bicycle again preparing for next tour to Slovakian Tatra mountains.
