Balkans and Greece on the May 2012

Hello guys!



Since our last Trip to Italy we`ve planned our next moto trip and decided to visit this time : Balkans and Greece. [27 days]

Here is the map of our future trip:

For now Our route priorities are: Plitvice lakes in Croatia - Croatia and Montenegro coast line - Ionian Islands in Greece (Kefalonia, Zakynthos/Zante, etc) - Meteora....


Which special places (sights) in Balkans and Greece would you strongly recommend to visit and which beautiful roads to follow ? I need an advice about the most picturesque roads you`ve ever taken in Balkans and Greece: along the seacoast or across some greek islands.... etc.



What could you advice about the ferry among islands in Greece? Which campings in Balkans etc did you anjoy most?
AND ONE MORE THING: What was your experience like while crossing the border of Albabia, Bosnia and Herzegovina?


Hope to hear also from Greek and Balkan riders !


Thanks in advance

and see you on the road!

Hello Adv. traveler !!!
I was looking at your route when you enter Greece...
Let me tell you a few thinks for you to do research ....
When you enter Greece and you want to visit a BIG city , thessaloniki is fine !!!
If after that you want to see places DONT take EGNATIA ODOS . It is abig road that just takes you to places.
Use local roads. No problem with gas , gas stations everywhere !.
Go to google earth and type the following names of places and see if you find something that you like with panoramio fotos .
nimfeo ( small village great for staying and see places from there )
metsovo ( great big village , nice hotels , great lake near by .)
ioanina ( city , next to the lake , everything is there )
lefkada ( it is an island , but you go there by brige ! beaches, sand,night life, small boats to take you for a swim every day without yousing your moto !! DO IT ! they will take you to places that you can not find !!)
Then if you wand do the cirkle on the map and go to...
nafpaktos ( castle , night life , beaches... ) then head up....
karpenisi... ( demanding roads to go there ... small vilages and our best kept secret.....ssssssss...pantavrehi gorge...(always raining , the actual name ) dirt road to go there .. you need gas, only small roads go there... look at it first and then we talk about it... )

Glad that you like it !!!!
Here some more homework for you .......
After leaving Nafpactos head up for avillage called Platanos , then you find a small lake (evinos lake) and then go for Domnista then Krikelo all the way north...
Leaving krikelo keep going north and aim for another lake (Plastiras lake). Nice hotels all around the lake plus many very nice small hotels that you can walk in and ask for a room . So simple ....
Find pictures on panoramio !!!! when you deside the route ... let us know ... Many Greek riders know about those places.
