A month ago three friends & I returned from an amazing trip. Over the next few weeks, still sorting photos! Before our memories fade, we will be posting pictures and tales of our trip through Greece, Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia & Italy. Here are a few pictures to get things started . Greece Albania Kosovo Montenegro Bosnia Croatia Our trip started in Venice, I had transported the bikes in the van from the UK, my three riding companions flew in Our group name was KTM made me do it!, this first came about on our Pyrenees trip in 2011, and continued on our Morocco trip in 2012 . From left to right Berin (Martin) KTM690, Louis HP2, Welshbird (Nicky), Dr JM (Janemarie), KTM 690s We all met up at the hotel Antica Fenice where wed arranged to leave the van, spent the evening wandering around Venice. Coming into land A spot of sightseeing The next morning we were all up bright and early, to ride 4 miles to the port to catch the ferry to Igoumenitsa, Greece. We collected our tickets, the ferry was loaded efficiently, but they pack em in tight! Met on deck for beers We were then treated to excellent views of Venice as we sailed along the Grand Canal.. We then had 27 hours to kill on the boat, which was really comfortable, good food & drinks at decent prices, plenty to see Teased by the view of the Albanian trails passing us by Albania on our left and Corfu to the right Keeping track of our progress.. Little did we know that this was the start of things to come, Dr JM changed, packed & ready for the off first! Only managed to beat her once (by dishonest means!) full story to follow. Headed into port, where we could see the hotel we had planned to stay in that night. By the time we unloaded the bikes, found our hotel, we were loosing the light . Shared our tea with these two lovely creatures The next day was to be the first proper riding day, where we were heading up to the Greece-Albanian boarder. To be continued .
