Today was a rest day before Jo and Steve’s arrival tomorrow. AirB&B was a great way to arrange great accomodation by the way!

Dubrovick certainly lives up to its reputation of being the amazing Dalmation town it is. I managed to walk the old city walls which gives a great view of the scale of the fortification (up to 6m thick walls).

There has also been significant work to bring the city back to its former glory following the recent war with Serbia.

I also took some time to work on the bike as the support for one of the pannier boxes was looking worse for ware. Due to the age and heavy load the rubber was starting to split. I managed to find a broken skate board that I robbed a wheel from to repair the bike which worked a treat as you can see from the photo’s. Necessity is the mother of invention after all.

Notice the black round rubber
Notice the black round rubber “thing” is spitting. Not good and time to change.

Job done. The skateboard wheel fits just right.

Steve and Jo are making their way down the coast, with Jo arriving last thing today and Steve will arrive tomorrow.

  1. Wow – stunning views and David – you are a clever chap aren’t you – just ignore the cries of 7 year old Marko who is wondering where his prized skateboard has gone !!
    Must be great to be reunited with Mrs Mad – enjoy.
