Mali Lošinj - Lubenice

Reported by Dipavajan Renner 21.0 km

We had a wonderful morning in Veli Lošinj.

...searching for breakfast...

Leaving Veli Lošinj behind, we went to Mali Lošinj for one of the few schools on the island...

...the greeting committee...

...we went into the gymhall, where the kids awaited us...

...lots of excellent performances...

...the older students watched from above...

...we went on the school yard for the passing of the torch...

...a Run once around the school...

...we were treated for apple pie!

Thank you Mali Lošinj for the enthusiastic meeting!

we visited the "Lošinj Marine Education Centre" in Veli Lošinj.

Sandro gave a nice presentation...

...we passed the torch to the manager of the centre...

...as well to a few visitors...

Thank you for the nice welcome!

...it was time to get back on the road...

...another stunning view from high above down to the Adriatic Sea!

...and nice uphills, too!

...new friends...

Toyesa is multi tasking....

...reaching Lubenice, a very old settlement. The locals told us the traces go back 4000 years...

...the last steps...

...a well deserved coffee...

...back at Sea level we went for a swim...

..the water was a bit chilly but great!

..our boys will not make it for the synchronised swimming at the next Olympics...

Thank you Cres and Lošinj for the hospitality and all the nice meetings!
