We had set alarm to wake us up at 06:00, had a slow breakfast and then packed rest of the stuff.

Went to load bike with some packages already and found this on the way:

Turned out that this man came from a 4-day wedding and had slept there whole night… and slept until just before we left…

Woke up early and while waiting for breakfast to be served at 07:00 checked how fast the internet connection was here in hotel Komovi. Quite good result for a hotel!

Restaurant was totally empty when I got down, needed to wait a bit and search after someone from the reception.

Next part of the journey started early. Could not really sleep so I woke up at 06:00 and started packing again.

By 07:00 I took some of the stuff into bike and Ivan – the owner of  Apartmani Mare - came down as well.

Once I had finished packing we had an coffee together with his mom and also a group photo was in place.

I almost put rain suite on as well, but decided to see how it goes as I needed to take first break pretty soon to get more fuel.

Just before Split I took a break for fuel and see how weather is progressing. All around Split...

Got small breakfast from the hotel, nothing fancy but enough to get me started for the day.

During the morning next route had been drafted and theme – again – would be small and even smaller roads.

By 09:30 I was ready to leave after packing all the stuff. Bike was resting in direct sunlight when I got out, had to move that to a shade to pack the bike.

After getting out from the city I got into smaller roads and rest of the Croatian side was this type of roads:

Day started with a small breakfast gathering, there were two groups with bicycles having breakfast at the same. One group was from Germany and other was from Denmark.

After having breakfast quick packing and driving started again.

Shortly after I had left I noticed that route on my navigator was not exactly the one I had planned. It was trying to take me through highways which I try to void, but after manually navigating to smaller roads again I managed to pass those big ones.

Navigator is still a big new to me and it somehow looks like it is still trying to route me through for example toll roads which I have set not to go there. Need to investigate this a bit further on better time.

These small roads took me through lots of villages, forests and other country side, really excellent route again.

Managed to take one break to drink after driving 200 km. Water consumption is getting higher and higher, temperature was now around 34 degrees and I was sweating a lot. It will take few more days to get used to this type of weather.
