    Italy here we come and go.

    September 3 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Decided to take route to Austria via passo di predil and Traviso. Nice driving with a lot of motorbikers who enjoy the numerous curves and narrow bends.
    By accident we ended up at a guesthouse close to Hermagor.
    Sorted images and prepared them for printout.

  • Day11

    On country roads to lakes Plitvice

    September 1 in Bosnia and Herzegovina ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Mostar would require staying at least one more day. However we have to say goodbye and are back on the road again, heading direction Split.
    Finally we decided to take route to Bihac. Learned a lot about the terrible war from 91 - 95. Everywhere you find traces of it and people are still suffering from it.
    We ended up at a camping place near Plitvice lakes. Good place to cure my stomach problems I had suffering from the entire day.

    Cetinje - Kotor - Mostar

    August 31 in Montenegro ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Finished party at Rijeka Crnojevica without hangover and poor Sharan successfully managed escape from camping site up the hill.
    Today's task was touring on P1 - Kotor - Perast - P11. One of the most marvelous roads since TransAlpina. Unique views over the bay of Kotor and most of the time nicely paved roads - getting pretty narrow from Njegusi. A challenge when a bus with tourist came opposite. Several times we had to drive backwards several hundred meters to give way. Without doubts a must not miss tour when in this region.
    Joined M2 and crossed Kotor Bay North of Tivat by ferry.
    Took R11 direction Virus. Again road nicely paved and maintained. Easy driving and swinging through the curves.
    Lunch break at Stara Kuca restaurant. We did not go for Kuvana jagnjeca glava ( cooked lamp head).
    Great day so far.
    Finished our today's journey in Mostar. Joined a guided tour and learned a lot about the history of Mostar, the different ethnic groups living here and how people suffered through the war from 91 -94. Not so easy to understand how this could happen in the heart of Europe.

    Good bye Albania!

    August 30 in Albania ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    In the morning we visited Kept i Rodonit (Kap Rodon)
    Roads had been in bad conditions partially and we complained about it, not knowing what will be ahead of us.
    Cape of Rodon (in Albanian: Kepi i Rodonit), a rocky, 10 km long cape on the Adriatic Sea, north of Durres is a great place for camping with a beautiful beach. It offers awesome views, medieval cultural monuments, virgin sandy beaches and plenty of old bunkers from Enver Hoxha’s times.
    Driving back we decided to take a shortcut to the motorway. This decision lead us to an unforgettable off road experience which brought our VW Sharan to it's limits.
    Fulfilled mission, drive on country roads and visit of Stari Bar.
    Finally heading for party site.

    Im Land der Skipetaren

    August 29 in Albania ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    We said Good Bye to Ohrid lake and leave North Macedonia at Kafasan heading for the country of the "Skipetaren", the Albanian seaside. Won't stop at Tirana as it would be too time consuming going for a sightseeing tour there. Just a short stop over doesn't make sense. Today's final destination is a monastery at cape Radon.
    Made road task, changed device and washed car - no Mercedes, but a police car :-). You never know ....

    RIno 2 Camping Site

    August 28 in Macedonia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Arrived at Rino camping site, close to Ohrid lake and took a bath in the lake. Over the time the place has been filled with Balkan Express participants. Lively atmosphere here.
    Totally different to the place we spent last night.

  • Day6

    From Rila monastery to Albania

    August 27 in Bulgaria ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    After visiting fantastic Rila monastery we decided to stay at the nearby located camping site Bor. A cosy site with beautiful nature around, a wild river passing by. Perfect stay for the night. In the morning we decided not to go for the road mission and daily task, but drive to the Orith lake directly, as it's a long ride and we would like to experience swimming in the lake.
    A chilly morning in the mountains welcomed us and made it somewhat difficult to enjoy morning toilet.
    Entered North Macedonia without any problems. Nice guys from border police were highly interested in our rallye.
    Stop over in Stip, center of textile industry.
    We were told that today here is a bank holiday. No parking fees fortunately and no risk to find a wheel blocked when coming back from lunch.

    Arrived at Ohrid at 4pm. Lunchtime!

    Golden Bridges (not) waiting

    August 27 in Romania ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Coming from Craiova we plan to cross the border at Calafat.
    Had an awesome hotel in Craiova.
    Crossed border without any complications. Bought vignette and decided not to visit golden Bridges but Kloster Rila which is one of Bulgaria's most famous monasteries and the seven lakes close to it.
    Lunch break in Montana.Read more
