Taking a break on Day 21 at PP Telašćica
After taking a break on Day 21 and 22, Day 23 continued from Zrmanja Vrelo to Lovinac on foot and bike.
55 kilometres for the day: And really, just 55 km on foot and by bicycle from Zrmanja Vrelo to Lovinac to begin forming the ‘C’ in ‘Welcome’.
After two days off, the journey continued at the spring of the Zrmanja river.
The Zrmanja river is located in Lika-Senj County and is 69 km long.
Lacko jumping across.
A quick break for a snack…
And a view.
Lacko pedaling on the old Terezijana road.
And on the way to Glogovo.
The ruins of a church in Deringaj.
And finally, onto Lovinac.
And the old mill in Lovinac.
A key part of the project was promoting tourism, and the official website has details of the key places visited during the day. On Day 23, however, Lacko and his crew did not cross any major landmarks.
You can see the entire project on the Welcome website, as well as much more of Luka Tambaca’s stunning photography on the Welcome Facebook page.
Tune in tomorrow for Day 24, as Lacko moves from Lovinac to Vaganski vrh.
