So we are about a week into this epic journey to Bosphorus and back so now is the perfect time to get up early, spring clean the vehicles and do an inventory of what supplies we have and what needs replenishing.
With 8 men spread across 3 touring homes, two tow cars and a support van you'd think that there would be a lot more cleaning needed. Despite how nice and neat we kept our leisure homes we still gave them a complete top to bottom spring clean. All the cupboards were emptied and wiped down, the carpets got a good seeing to due to the mud we gathered in Italy and Bled.
Once we got through our strikt cleaning regime we went on to do the stock take. No surprise really that we managed to eat almost every scrap of food and use up all the team bags. So as soon as we get to Dubrovnik we are going to need to do some serious shopping, cant have the guys running on zero tea intake.
Today was supposed to be a light driving day with only a 125 mile to get through. Once the day was said and done it took 7 hours instead of the expected 3-4. The large delay was not due to my questionable driving skills or the roads around the mountains. What caused it was the content stopping to take in all the scenery Croatia has to offer. You simply cannot get enough of it as it is no mind blowing. We were about 200 meters above the sea yet you could see right to the bottom, gin clear and stunning.
So what was a supposed to be a light day turned into a long drive through Croatia taking in all the scenery, and then there was our detour to Bosnia. There is not too much to report on this little detour as it was extremely brief. To get to Dubrovnik from Split you have to cross the Bosnia border for around 20 minutes and then back.
We finally got to our site in Dubrovnik and were met by a new addition to the team, who you will meet on our Facebook Live broadcast later on. So be sure to keep checking Facebook as well as Bailey's.
