After almost 10 months out of saddle (broken legg) finnaly we start to our longest adventure.13 000 km long trip from Zagreb-Croatia to North Cape-Norway and back!

ODO :)



First day we we made almost 1000 km and reach the Franfurt-Germany.Our friend gave us nice B&B and really nice small talk.He is also very good hobby mechanic so we changed the rear disc pads next morning.
STAU in Germany...


Last preparation...


Next day the finish line was in Schleswig-Germany.600km total.
Down town...






Third day.Plan was to buy ferry tickets at Hirtshals-Danmark to Kristiansand-Norway.So like we saw on internet there was no tickets for morning ferry,only available was night ferry.So we bought the night ferry tickets.

The port...


The beach...

Old lighthouse...

Ferry company...




It was 3pm , we had tickets...so we decited to make a small trip(70km) to Skagen.The most northern Danmark point.
And there we found...



Nice composition...

Local weekend houses...


WW2 ruins....

Turistic train...



And the ferry is close...

Where does Norway find its road engineers? Did no one tell them roads can't be works of art, never mind bridges.
