Scott Anderson commented on Thursday 5th September 73 Kms Lukov to Mikulov. Through the National Park Forest and Along the Military Patrol Path.

So that’s what Mikulov looks like! It was overcast when we arrived there, and pouring the next morning.

I don't think the German officer declined the kiwis help. Far from it. From what Dad said the Germans were very keen to surrender to the Kiwis but the Yugoslavs would not let them. The NZ commander decided they weren't going to fight over it and marched the troops out again. Dad said the one thing he felt bad about was there were German women in uniform there and he thought they would have had a bad time once they surrendered.

One thing I forgot to say Ann is that Komoot uses a lot of battery from your phone so if you are using it a lot you need a power bank you can hook into if your battery gets too low

Would love to meet up with you in the summer
As far as Komoot is concerned it works extremely well most of the time. Like you we only us a phone. I have found the key to this is to have a handlebar mount for it (before we had this and Ihad it in my handlebar bag I found it impossible). Make sure you have it set on cycle touring - occasionally if it will give you an impossible route, if it does this change the setting to road cycling. I actually do have a GPS but find the phone more satisfactory
Like you I have been really enjoying reliving previous trips through yours
If all else fails the cycle route given on google maps can be helpful.
They dont exist in all countries - I dont know about Slovenia but they dont in Italy
Keep safe

Thanks Tricia, it was a big day but wonderful as well. ( like childbirth- all is well at the end! and the tough bits forgotten).
We are keeping up with you and recalling the route that we enjoyed. It’s good to have a prompt to do that.
I note you use Komoot. Have planned our next section with them. We don’t have a GPS apart from phone., and no bike guides from now on.
Go safely. Would love to meet up in summer. We are in Auckland. Ann

I am so enjoying your journey though the thought of todays climb made me want to lie down! We are close to reaching the end of our trip with only about 10 days of cycling left before we reach my niece in Paris
Keep safe
