We like muddy and dusty roads, but this time we took it all the way. Passing through Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro and finishing in Croatia. People are great, but the dogs are not.


The old man tells us we should reach Ooty before dark because a week ago a tiger attacked couple of villagers. We are pedaling through Western Ghats where we finally see a wild Gaur. From Bangalore by bicycles through Mysore, Ooty, Munnar, Thekkady, Alleppey and then by train back to Mangalore and Mumbai.


In Macedonia, we are scraping through the fence on a highway, riding to the Northern Greece for a drink with Konstantinos and then heading toward “Cursed Mountains” and National Park Thethi in Albania. At the end of our journey, while we are washing our clothes, we meet our friends Monika and Vanja.


In the company of Anne and Flo we are cruising toward Durmitor mountains on a trekking race. On the way we are eating light so Uglješa is taking us on a burek and krempita cake. While gesticulates with his hands, Eko is all excited about great cycling routes to Žabljak.
