    Guys, need some help! Right now we are in Kotor. Plan to stay tomorrow in Montenegro, to go to Sveti Stefan etc. But the day after tomorrow(11th-) we are headed to the border with Albania. Could u plz advice us which road is it better to take from Montenegro to Albanian border, and which road to follow in Albania while going to Ioannina / zagoria(Greece). We are out of current info about state of roads in Albania or scenic roads with special nature views there. Thanks in advance!!! Hope to hear from u . PsUpdate Thanks to Billy boy now we have got a ruote plan for Albania. ;)

    As of last October, the road from Han i Hotit to Shkoder was not completed and had many miles of unsurfaced or rough-surfaced road.

    Can't help you after that as I came in from Kosovo, not Greece.

    Good luck.

    If you make it to Athens before Monday evening, the beer's on me!

    Edit: Scrub that; just realised you're not coming to Athens. Bon voyage all the same!

    Zagoria's serpentine roads are veryscenic! Vikos gorge is unbelievable... Tomorrow we plan to stay in camp of Lefkada and then spend a week on the ionian islands! Stay tuned;)

    Hey! Right now we are in camp near olympos mount! Everythin is allright, today had some trouble but fixed it quickly in auto repair service... One of the metal holder of our coffre *near sub-frame had a crack in it, and finally got broken because of holes on the roads we had got into previously) We repaired it somewhere near Olympos mount(Leptokarya)... on the highway road. Kostas - a repair master did everything very good and quickly!! Thanks to him we were on the road again in a hour! Tomorrow we plan to be in Halkidiki! And spend 1-2days there! P
