Glasgow to Bulgaria 09

Hey there peeps, just thought i'de put the feelers out to see if anyone wanted to join myself and my brother-in-law on a trip to Sunny Beach in Bulgaria in mid June 2009. We plan on travelling through Germany into the Czeck Republic into Slovakia down into Hungary through Romania and finally into Bulgaria. We plan to do the entire trip in 18 days, camping most/some of the time with a few B&B's in between. This is our 1st trip abroad but not our 1st road trip. Plan to enter Europe via the Eurtunnel. Donnie

Glasgow to Bulgaria

Hi Donnie
I had planned to take a similar route to Romania last June, thought there might be two of us going but it turned out I was on my own. Hey Ho. June came n went so........ Sounds like a good idea to me.
I work offshore so am limited to when I could go.

I'll probably be in the same general area (Romania and Bulgaria) around that same time.

My plan is to first do the enduromania (I'll try to hitch a ride with a trailer/bus for me and the bike to get there), then cruise down to Bulgaria, hang out at the beach and maybe have my girlfriend meet me there.

After I'll probably go to Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia and then back home (Germany).

So far it's just a vague plan, only thing fairly certain is the Enduromania...
