20.07.2009 - 20.07.2009 30 °C
11th day 20.7.2009
My knees didnt get better so I decided to slovely stop cycling.I was maybe able to cycle few more days but in this case I would probably be risking serious injuries and that is why I set last goal. The goal was ferry port Vela Luka 45 km away on other sie of the island Korčula. I got an advice previous night from local guy, to choose secondary road at crosspoint 10 km outside town. Because I have listen to him, I have saved a lot of uphills which were killing my knees so badly. Korčula is beautyfull island and I firgott abozut time. Camed to goal in about 3 hours and cycled 45 km.
In Vela Luka there was ferry already waiting for me. Last destination was Split where I was meeting good friend Marko from Slovenia. Because I arrrived earlier than him I went for some time to beautyfull park Marjan which is located on west side of the town. I always visit this park when I am in split and I also recomend to everyone. It is possible to only walk, but there is also botanical garden, ZOO park and many more.
After park I have meet with marko and we went with his car outside of town again in direction south from where I just camed. We moved to 60 km southern to town Makraska where we overnighted in camp.
