    If I keep going backwards I’m not going to hit Turkey very soon...

    Lunch break on the side of the road - cheese, stale bread and an apple - happiness.

    I love clouds - can you tell?

    Yes, the gates are down. No, no one seems to care much about it :-)

    Views from the south shore of Lake Skadar.

    It was a very narrow road in poor condition with pavement all along but very bumpy and patched all over - and with great views of the lake! That day I only rode 180 km and felt just as tired as on a 400 km day with faster sections. Amazingly TomTom Go is always very good at predicting the time it will take to get to my destination, I wonder how their algorithm works - distance between turns or historical data of people riding that section?

    Kids! Lunch time!

    First time I ate young goat (“kid” is the term??). A bit strong, it reminded me of lamb.

    The ruins of Stari Bar (Old Bar), actually a few km away and inland from Bar that is on the coast.
