    Hi,
    this year i bought a Honda Wave 110i, but the trip from germany to south-croatia is
    to far (about 1200km oneway) for this small motobike. So i put it in my car and make daytrips.

    My first stop was on the grossglockner pass (austria) for one night
    (cars 34,50 EUR). The weather was famous on 2500m and i look around. The stepy
    streets are a hard work for the small Honda Wave.

    I took the easy way and walk up to 3000m for lunch. On the way many marmots and ibex, they are not to scary
