It was the last ride with Leo and we managed to knock it out very quickly. The road was perfectly smooth and there was a mild tailwind to help is along too.
After lunch and some ice cream, we parted ways and it didn’t seem real. A month had gone by and it was so casual to just say “cya later”, but we knew our time was short and we each had really exciting stuff to do.
I ended up doing some chores, like laundry and cleaning my bike, just catching up on some normal things to slow myself down a bit. The city had plenty of beautiful buildings and loads of restaurants and cafés to choose from. I eventually picked a place and tried honey rakija too, it was really smooth and a little bit addictive. Then of course I went for more ice cream and called it a night.
The next morning I slept in and eventually made it to Petrovaradan Fortress, which is well known as the location for EXIT festival, an annual summer music festival. It’s huge and there’s a lovely view of the city and river.
For dinner I treated myself to a mushroom steak and some rice, I’ve been missing rice a bit too much lately. Of course I had to prepare myself for a 112km ride tomorrow, which is going to be a 35 degree day. It looks like this sweet break ended too quickly.
