Cao Bosnia, Zdravo Croatia

Continuing down the gorge from Montenegro, we found ourselves in similar towns and villages to when we crossed the north of Croatia all those months ago. Lots of abandoned houses, pockmarked with bullet holes, and red signs warning of the… Continue Reading →

Cold and Wet

Albania had some incredible mountain roads, but unfortunately we had such terrible, cold and wet weather that we couldn’t enjoy the climbs or descents. I resorted to wearing my waterproof trousers and still got soaked, while James ‘I wear shorts… Continue Reading →

Goodbye Albania, hello Montenegro.

Albania will probably go down as one of our least favourite countries. The roads were bad, the weather was bad, the people weren’t as friendly as their Balkan neighbours, and the kids all wanted money (not an isolated issue, but… Continue Reading →

Goodbye Macedonia, hello Albania.

Macedonia marks the start of our forray into the Balkans, and also the return of countries lasting less than a week. After seeing quite a bit of “Macedonia=Greek” graffiti, as well as the recent name change from F.Y.R.O.M to North… Continue Reading →

Gule Gule Turkey, geia sas Greece

Turkey was short but sweet. Just 4 and a half days riding. But we felt so welcomed by everyone. Even before we swung a leg over the bikes, someone had come to invite us to eat at the friends restaurant…. Continue Reading →

One year on tour!

After a great breakfast and waiting for a bike shop to open (it didn’t), we left Edrine behind us and headed south. We had a day of fairly flat farm roads through the countryside, a fantastic donnar kebab at lunch,… Continue Reading →

The last leg

We started the week in Taiwan, and ended it in Turkey. One final night with our first Taiwanese W.S hosts, Julia and Yoshi, and then our last two flights, Taipei – Dubai – Istanbul. The flights were fairly uneventful, and… Continue Reading →
