Buz gave us asphalt again and from here we cycled down to Tepelene and up to Permet through the Vjosa valley, before taking the exit to Leskovik we took another gravel side road with nice views of the river. Then the road went up and up to Leskovik after which we stayed at Farma Sotira.
From the border it was only a short cycle through Struga to Ohrid, here we celebrated Martin's birthday and we did some sightseeing. The weather was the best it has been in days and Ohrid is nice and relaxed.
From Ohrid we cycled over the pass to lake Prespa and from there over old roads to Bitola, which felt as a relaxed city. We also visited a quiet Roman historic city. From there we crossed over to Greece.
