I was wondering how close Bacon was to a world record but it seems he's still a long way off.

Even though they cheated by using airplanes

Quick update, Bacon and I have made it through France, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia and a very short detour through Austria to Croatia. He wants to let you know he's quite at ease in my tank bag and prefers this over the alternate method of transportation (details later when I post his report, I have only this pic on my phone)

I was accompanying LethPhaos for few days during his travel trough Bosnia and Montenegro. Bacon is in good hands and will see some amazing places



PJ and Bacon at Trebevic mountain, overlooking Sarajevo; capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina.




Hiding in a cloud, ex military installation close to the summit of Bjelasnica mountain.


More to follow in next few days as I process the photos :)
