A trip from Ljubljana to Tirana, through Bosnia, one of my greatest trips in summer. I’ve made a GPS track of it. I give some more info on that website. The trip ends in Albania, the country that I am in love with.
Balkan people are quite friendly, their food is good tasting and the scenery is sometimes stunning. It can be hot in summer.

I avoided the busy coast road
Sava river (here in Slovenia), which I would follow until Bosnia.
The other side of the river is Bosnia.
A fisher beach like this should be without land mines.
This area shows a lot of traces of the war in the nineties. The villagers highly appreciate getting visitors!
Ramsko Jezero, a touristy lake, but no non-Bosnian tourists to be seen.
Lunch with hospitable family, who spoke German very well.
the uncle, who lost his mind in the war
Yes, hairpin bends in a tunnel!
The Durmitor mountains in the north of Monte Negro, one of the highlights of the trip.
The pas road, Sedlo, 1900 meters. I slept there, my highest night in a tent.
Biogradska Gora national park
that night in their garden
the morning after

Edi Rama, the mayor of Tirana is an artist and had the city painted colourfully.
