    Next Adventure !

    Hello folks,

    I'm in the very early stages of planning my next adventure, and my thoughts are currently along the lines of riding across Europe to the Adriatic coast of Croatia (Gospic or Zadar sort of area). That's about as much detail as I've got, and would welcome any suggestions for specific routes across Europe (or parts thereof).

    Any ideas considered !

    Thanks in advance.

    Bye for now.

    Wack

    Hello Wack,

    Going down that way begining of June for a couple of weeks...have some specific! :008:

    Ferry Newcastle to Holland, belt down the autobahn to eastern Germany at the Czech border (1st of the good roads)then meander south through Austria, Slovenia then around Zadar for a few days.

    Stuff wot I have found and want to do:

    Austria: Lake Attersee, Nockalmstrasse, Wurzen Pass into Slovenia.

    Slovenia: Vrsic and Predel Pass and Mangart road. Lake Bled & Bohinjska. Caves at Postojnska.

    Croatia: Route 8 coast road, Pag & Zadar. Plitvicka Lakes and Zeljava Air Base

    This is good:

    https://finestayslovenia.com/whattodo/motorcycling/

    Itchy Boots is worth a watch on You Tube for her bit in Croatia (well her whole thing is superb TBH!) and The Missinden Flyer has some Slovenia vlogs at the moment which will at least give you a gee'up for the environs.

    Some good trip reports/planning on advrider and ukgser.

    Only other thing I would want to say is do the Grossglockner if you have not been. Its pay to play but its astounding, scenery and roads. Just get up there as early as you can as it can get busy. (We stayed here http://www.landhaus-gitti.at/EN/Home.aspx )

    Hello andyrob,

    Thanks for that. I'll get to investigating that in the next few days.

    Max2007,

    Split may become part of the trip, as I'm considering riding down through Croatia, then hopping across to Italy on the Split - Ancona ferry, and back up through Italy (decisions, decisions) ?

    Thanks again.

    Wack
