29.09.2019 Trip's end.  No, we are not proud of this flight back home, as we know about its negative ecological impact. We are willing to avoid travelling by plane where possible, but with two bikes there was no reasonable alternative and our time schedule for October and some signs of fatigue on the part of our bikes do not allow for any detours right now. Our final stop on the island of Pag was Povljana, where we visited Durda. She is 77 years old and a long-time friend of Addy's mum and the entire family. She lives on Pag during the summer and will soon go to Zagreb for the winter – and she is an excellent host and cook. We have been to this place before – in Addy's case, many times. His family has come to the town on summer trips for more than 30 years, and they have witnessed Povljana's evolution from a tiny coastal village into a tourist destination which is much more confusing, commercial and anonymous today, but still very laid-back and charming. Two days ago we crossed the bridge that connects Pag to the mainland and cycled on to Zadar, our final destination. Apart from (re-)discovering this town so rich in history and architecture and enjoying our final meal, final drinks and final ice cream, we had one very important job to do: Disassembling and packing up our bikes for their journey home. Tonight, we are goingt to fly back to Germany. After 2100 kilometres, our trip ends here and today, but our updates will not. There will be more stories to share in October, and in a few weeks time we will set out on a new adventure. Thank you to all those people who have become part of this one, who have hosted or assisted us along the way or followed us from home or somewhere else out there. #scoutbound #croatia #hrvatska #adriaticcoast #adriaticsea #pag #zadar #islandhopping #warmshowers #couchsurfing #europe #europeanunion #tour #balkan #scouts #dpsg #cycling #bike #velo #camping #biketouring #cyclinglife #cyclinglover #touringlife #adventure #lessborderslessvisa
