Day 58: Maribor to Poljana

Tuesday May 31, 2005, 84 km (52 miles) – Total so far: 3,613 km (2,245 miles)

We followed the River Drava west from Maribor taking the quiet route on the southern bank. Most of the roads here are unsurfaced and are certainly anything but flat, we must have spent half the day climbing.

We’re staying in a guesthouse called Gostišče Krivograd (fairly near the Austrian border) we just didn’t have the time or energy to make it to the campsite.

Another great gravel road, though not ideal for our 700 x 32 tyres
