Balkan Rest Day in Pula

Sep 11, 2022

Today was a super relaxing rest day in Pula, Croatia. It started with some excitement at about 5am with a thunderstorm, some wind and a fair amount of rain. When I finally got up around 6:30 the clouds had cleared and the full moon was out. I went to the ATM to get some kuna – Croatia seems to accept euro everywhere but I figured it’s nice to have some real money. Then I bought some supplies for breakfast and lunch.

I did some bike love, then laundry, then rode a couple of km into town to a larger market to buy some clothes pins. I realized while riding I didn’t really need the rest day which was great. I spent some time reading, some time coding on my nstrava app to make it work with Slovenia and Croatia locations better. After lunch I laid down in my tent for a minute and woke up an hour later, sure that it was morning and time to go riding!

In the late afternoon, several of us headed over to the bar for more rounds of IPA and some food – really fun.

Here’s to a nice sleep and a relatively easy ride tomorrow, at least on paper.
