Cres - Mali Lošinj

Reported by Dipavajan Renner 70.0 km

Welcome to Croatia! We started our day in a lovely place near the ferry terminal to Cres.

The sun was rising at 5 a.m.

Thank you for the hospitality!

...the ferry to the island of Cres...

...here we go!

Cres is a beautiful place with many hills, covered with trees, flowers and a gorgeous view!

...reaching the town of Cres...

...we went to the (only) school on the island. The mayor of Cres greeted us and the school gave us an enthusiastic welcome!

...the kids sang for us...

...we passed the torch to the city of Cres. The mayor spoke kind words...

...time for the kids to hold the torch...

...a group picture with the teachers...

...the mayor and the teachers were running a symbolic lap around the children...

...school stampede...

Thank you Cres for the heartfelt welcome!

...before we continued our Run there was time for a football game...

Our next meeting brought us to the Franciscan monastery on Cres.

The priest welcomed us...

...a tour through the garden...

...it's 258km to Assisi...

Thank you for the nice welcome!

...stones everywhere...

..and long, lonely roads, too. The temperature was climbing...

...at the gasoline station you likely meet also ships...

...we can see the mountains at the main land of Croatia...

As we reached Mali Lošinj, a group of runners awaited us...

..running to the main square...

...a city festival was in process...

...we went on stage...

...and after a short presentation we passed the torch to the mayor...

...the mayor went for the "big tour": he gave the torch to everyone!

Thank you Mali Lošinj for the kind meeting! We really enjoyed our stay!
