While we were still in Žuljana on summer vacation, near Potomje I decided to visit sv. Juraj trail, which I heard about from Dalibor.  But before hiking on st. Juraj trail I took a XC ride that starts in Potomje, goes under the tunnel which leads to the west side of Pelješac. From there I followed unpaved road which has a nice look on the sea and local vineyards.

Descent from st. Ilija, which I rode for the first time in 2017. with Dalibor, is one of mine favorite rides, but this time I wanted to try another trail that goes from peak st. Ilija to Ruskovići along Kabal peak (this is the reason why this trail is called Kabal trail). I was surprised when Dalibor told me that this trail is going to be even harder than the first descent. I thought that he is exaggerating, but after ride I realized it was the truth.

Korčula is Croatian island in Adriatic sea. It is almost 50 km long, and in average 8 km wide and it is the most populous Croatian island not connected to the mainland by brige. Main settlements on the island are towns Korčula, Vela Luka and Blato. This summer I spent part of my vaccation in Vela Luka, so I decided to visit hill above this town.  At the highest point there are the ruins of a fortress, which was built during the reign of Austria-Hungary in the 19th century and is now only preserved in fragments. As we were camping in campsite Mindel , which is aproximately 5 km from Vela Luka, I started from there. From there I immediately connected on gravel road that goes along the coast on eastern part of Korčula and leads to Vela Luka town. From there i followed path that leads to peak Hum.
