Balkans 2016 – Day 39 : Ulcinj to Budva, Montenegro

Today my plan is to hug the coast of Adriatic ocean all the way to Budva. After having a quick coffee and light breakfast, I started my journey. The weather was great again and looks like sunshine all the way. The temperature is getting colder though at around 17c up till 1 pm where it will heat up slightly. Actually a perfect temperature for riding.

The headwind was massive today. At some point I was finding it very difficult to ride especially uphill. The hill climbs were manageable but tough when the headwind strikes.

Headwind aside the ride was fantastic and very enjoyable. It seemed that every corner come out of presents you with a scenery more beautiful than the last. Wow! The Montenegro coast is absolutely stunning.

Mid way I stopped for a hearty lunch before pushing on.

The stunning views continued all the way to Budva. I arrived at the hostel at around 430pm and around 15 minutes I was surprised with the arrival of the crazy Japanese rider Fumi. It seems he rode from Shkoder which must me at least 110km away. Fuyoh indeed.

I decided to go check out the city and have a quick look at the old town and the fortress before buying a light dinner and going back to the hostel.

Fumi as usually cooked up a huge dinner for himself. We chatted awhile before we turned in for the night.
