We passed through some great little towns and villages on our way back to Austria, Bled was particularly beautiful on the banks of an enormous lake. We spent a good portion of today on dirt tracks, riding through a National Park with some wonderful scenery. There are some very steep climbs in this region and the pass leading back to Austria was 18% in places.
Camping tonight is by Ossiacher See, which is a large lake to the east of Villach. I just snapped the middle of the three poles which hold our tent together, the tent did come with a spare section which we’ve fitted but if it happens again we’re in trouble.
