Size matters

We may think little bikes, but these girls may not weight 100 lbs, you put a 6 foot 250 lb guy on it and there would be a difference. When they are by the bikes the bikes look big. I think they will be just fine. Also they do not ride 80 mph all day to get somewhere interesting to ride.

Hi Weronika,

I just read your reports on here and on Facebook - absolutely amazing!

You and Caroline have my greatest respect (shame that she had to turn back... ); I admire your courage to embark on such a big adventure on such a small bike.

You go, girl - looking forward to reading more about your experiences and seeing your fantastic pictures.

All the best, keep the rubber side down!

Ela

Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers..... The mind can never break off from the journey!

Seien sie gut und genießen Sie gemeinsame zeit!

09.09.2011 Bulgaria

On our Suzuki VanVan's we arrived today to Bulgaria. Initially we ride with the skeptical attitude to this country. In our plan it was the only pi-stop on the route Romania - Macedonia, but we must admit that was our fault, because this is beautiful country. Today, thanks to our GPS "stray" and we land into the canyon which was magnificent...it was a pity to turn back to find a right path. Local road sometimes surprise with number of pits, sand and gravel, but the landscape completely compensate surfaces. Drivers are only less predictable than in Romania...

And how are VanVan's? Well, dear skeptics who talk that this is not the bike for this type of expedition .. announce that oh YES! ... fuel consumption - a full loaded bike in the mountains 2.2 l/100km! A highway road's 2.5 l/100km and what you say? And to be honest the perspective of the world from such of a motorcycle looks divine, because, why the rush, if you can safely go ahead, enjoy the surroundings and enjoy every day.

Into Macedonia we pulled with small adventures .. Karolina's lack of a "green card" could prevent us to enter to this country, but a brief exchange of views supported by our smiles had wrought a miracle. Now we look forward to have two more... in Albania and Montenegro - keep your fingers crossed!

BTW Macedonia is beautiful, has very good roads and a full "corners" nice people live here. Yesterday evening we had a small walk through Ohrid and finally we felt like in the Balkans. Live folk music, full of people on the boardwalk, cafes, restaurants occupied by guests. Ohrid is a charming city.

Lovely trip... I love the flower boxes and the charming small cobblestone streets! I don't think I could go back to reality after that either....

Yes great words...My mom use to tell us that as kids and couldn't be more true!

Cheers to you! Be safe and enjoy!

Prost!

11.09.2011 Albania
The border of this country we were crossing with increased adrenaline .. we sent one thousand smiles toward the publican, hitting him with a hundreds of questions, just to distract his attention from our documents .. effect - zero questions about the "green card".
Albania greeted us with a view of hundreds of bunkers and the damn heat ... 40C - this is not the best temperature for the ride!

The country is hard for us to judge, because on the one hand we ride the route Elbasan - Tirane, which beats a head tour in Romania, but on the other .. people, the atmosphere .. we felt not well in this country... from everywhere we felt some threats... Once we pass the Montenegro border with breathe with relief.
