    Hi,
    last year i bought a Honda Wave 110i, but the trip from germany to south-croatia is to far (about 1200km oneway) for this small motobike. So i put it in my car and make daytrips.

    My first stop was on the grossglockner pass (austria) for one night (cars 34,50 EUR). The weather was famous on 2500m and i look around. The stepy streets are a hard work for the small Honda Wave.

    On the next day i look the glacier and saw many climbers walk to the top of the Grossglockner 3798m

    I took the easy way and walk up to 3000m for lunch. On the way many marmots and ibex, they
    are not to scary

    At least write the price in Croatian Kunas or Euros! I bet you did not pay in Thai currency.
    Nice pics! Need to visit Panos, never been there although I ride around there a lot.
