    On the last pic you can see Livno city, mountain Tušnica on left, Biokovo in the middle and Kamešnica on right.

    As i get higher there is more and more snow, and very cold wind called "Bura".

    and go home.

    On the way back,resting Cetina river again (and one wrong way)

    Very easy, and very close, if you need any detail info please ask.
    Croatia&Bosnia are great offRoad destinations if you know where
    to go.

    Thank you all for reading, it is very nice to awake these memories.
    Continuing now.

    Wow, in only 1 year? :p

    Croatia seems pretty similar to germany from the landscape.. and then.. the next pic it is totally different.

    I like the picture of the reflection on your helmet the most.

    Is that an "universal mounting kit" for different types of tires on that LADA? Never seen such thing before...

    That's an old R4 isn't it. The Renault counterpart to the 2CV. That area is very beautiful. In the late 60's or early 70's I traveled to Zagreb and some coastal town. I vaguely remember a place called Biograd or similar sounding. The water was always crystal clear.

    Keep the pictures coming. Maybe one day I'll get to see it again.
