My wife and I are hoping to travel from Turkey up to England in April next year, via Greece and the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. i.e. through Macedonoa, Albania, Croatia etc.
As we will be travelling on 2 bikes and possibly me towing a camper trailer I can't imagine we will want to travel more than 250kms per day, but of course the distance travelled each day is less important than what we see and do on our journey.
We've allowed 3/4 weeks from Izmir to Calais or Hook of Holland, but our interest is the Turkey, Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia Croatia areas. We will take our time for this part of the journey (probably meaning less than 200kms per day and even staying a night or two somewhere) and make slightly more haste through the top of Italy and Germany etc.
I will be keeping a close eye on this thread for ideas, although there is plenty of info on this area available in various threads in this wonderful forum.
