Warning sign
Watch out there’s mines in those fields

Tue 15. Mohacs to Novi Sad, Serbia. 104 miles. Cold start once again but at least it stays dry. Had to hand my passport over at the Croatian border first time I’ve had to do that on this trip. They obviously only let lorries through at a certain time as they were all queued up waiting to cross, passed through the Hungarian side and then proceeded the Croatian side who were also ok, I was having a conversation with a policeman I think (he wasn’t in a uniform but had a badge) whilst the border guards checked my passport, I think he was asking me where I was going, so I told him, not too sure what he thought about it but he shook his head a few times at certain countries. Pleasant ride through Croatia, nice and flat. I got to Osijek and continued to ride through and head in an easterly direction, (what other way would I be going on this trip?) I passed a couple of houses that looked as if they were riddled with bullet holes but thought not it must be something else. Then after about a kilometre when I was away from any houses and surrounded by fields I noticed there were some signs with skull and cross bones on them, after a closure look they were warning about mines! Perhaps they were bullet holes after all. Also glad I didn’t have to pop into the fields for a comfort break, that could have been painful! More border checks crossing into Serbia but again no problem.
