Thanks buddy. Much appreciated! what route are you heading up north? I have overlanded in the region you are going through now. try to visit lake plitvice in Croatia if you can. Also, Croatia is super beautiful. are you taking ferry across Adriatic sea or drive to north Italy? (if you drive, you will have to by pass southern Italy..) I don't know the situation in Kosavo now, but it wasn't possible when I was there a few years ago, but Bosnia was possible and it is beautiful! (I should add, my car was broken into and everything, that I left in the car, was stolen in Sarajevo. But I don't hold them accountable. Could've happened in any other 15 or so countries I visited during that trip.) wonderful trip! Good luck.
