Driving with passion…

As we are waiting for our ferry in Banatska Palanka to bring us to Ram where we will stay for the night, we thought it is a good idea to give you the heads up given the fact that we biked 480 km over the past three days.

Within a blink of an eye we left Croatia and entered our third country in the Balkan, namely Serbia.

Here we were confronted with a combination of bad roads and reckless drivers (they call it driving with passion…). In other words, the perfect cocktail for interesting situations. For example, we witnessed how one car passing us hit the mirror of an oncoming car. We’re using our own “language” to warn each other for these kind of situations: Kuil! (For a big hole in the road), Tegen! (For oncoming traffic) and Auto! (For overtaking traffic).

Nonetheless, Serbia has made a positive impact on us thus far. The people are extremely interested and graceful. After the second time of buying a pack of yeast (yeah.. Not smart) instead of butter we thought it was a good idea to give it to a person rather than a bin. The women who received the little package of yeast was so happy that she bought us a box of “spekulaas” which are cookies. Not a bad deal at all!!!

After leaving the busy city of Belgrade this morning we soon found ourselves on the Donau route and had a fantastic ride across the beautiful landscape of Serbia.

Tomorrow we will take a day off to do some maintenance on our bikes, do the laundry and hopefully make use of our swim wear.

  1. May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who genuinely
    knows what they are talking about on the web. You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More and more people must check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you aren’t more popular since
    you surely possess the gift.

    1. Hey ultrasn0w unlock,

      Thank you very much for your reply. It is incredible how much you get to know about a country and its culture when your cycling.
      People are genuinely interested and therefore share there stories and vice versa.
      We often had the impression that people would share their opinions in the hope we would share them too.

      With kind regards,
      Ronald and Maurice

  2. I do consider all of the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very brief for novices. May you please lengthen them a
    bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
