Where: Pula to Cres
Distance 1,900 km
The first day cycling on my own started off early. I headed into the town centre of Pula to check out the Roman arena and book my ferry across to a near by island. My plan was to ferry hop my way down to Split.
I had heard near by to Pula there was a place for rock diving and jumping so I headed off after breakfast to check it out and hopefully go for a jump myself.
It was a 10 km slow bumpy dirt track into a place called the safari bar.
After having lunch under some grass huts I went for a swim and gave the rock jumping a go. The water felt amazing after being out in the sun for so long.
Later that day on a ferry to the Island of Cres I met a fellow Italian cyclists Luka who was an expert on the Istria region. It was great to have a cycle companion for the rest of the afternoon.
