This morning before the lady who was supposed to prepare me breakfast arrived, I am repairing my inner tube from yesterday.
There was a tiny hole. Then I dismantle the wheel, determined to find the object that causes this small hole. I take the tire out of the rim and inspect it from every angle... I can’t find anything. I look at the tube I just dismantled, I have a little more trouble finding it, but there is an equally tiny hole positioned in the same way. I spend 15 minutes looking at the tire again... nothing. So I go back up and tell myself that at worst I’ll re-inflate every 10 km :/
In the series maintenance I recover olive oil from the lady in order to put it on my chain ! It was squeaking really loud last night and since I don’t see any bike garages (or any garages at all) I tell myself that cooking oil will be better than nothing.
After two hours of driving I still didn’t need to refill the tire. A little surprised : I don’t really believe in spontaneous repairs ^^ I think maybe the object fell or came out when I shredded the tire in all directions ?
After the 10% slope, at the top of the hill, I re-inflate as a precaution. Obviously I haven’t lost any pressure : the repair is working. What could it be ? What could it be ? A splinter of wood or iron recovered from the ferry ? I can only see that, the condition of the boat makes the hypothesis possible...
I was told that my journey of the day was the most beautiful part of the Danube. I like to think so and I can only imagine what it would have been like with a clear sky ! These gorges are beautiful.
On the way I only see a few great tourist restaurants so in Tekija I do some shopping that I nibble in a shelter a little further away.
The arrival in Kladovo.... But why do people leave false GPS coordinates for their rentals ? I arrive very close to the house, but it’s not that and I don’t see street names anywhere... So I look at the picture of a plan that the guy sent me there are coordinates I put them in my smartphone and I leave on the other side of town ! Well, these coordinates had nothing to do with the address.... I talk to the guy on WhatsApp and get closer to their house and his mother finally picks me up on a nearby street ^^
