from Ljubljana to Tirana

balkan2010

A trip from Ljubljana to Tirana, through Bosnia, one of my greatest trips in summer. I’ve made a GPS track of it. I give some more info on that website. The trip ends in Albania, the country that I am in love with.

Balkan people are quite friendly, their food is good tasting and the scenery is sometimes stunning. It can be hot in summer.

    This area shows a lot of traces of the war in the nineties. The villagers highly appreciate getting visitors!
