London -> Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary...

Hi,

I'm off in about 2 weeks time (dates are not set in stone), approx April 24, from London, through France (La Rochelle, Angouleme), Andorra, Spain (Barcelona, Tarragona), Italy (Milan, Rome), Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany... finishing back in the UK after about 6 weeks or so.

Is anyone interesting in meeting up along the way, or riding as a group for a stretch? I'm on a KLR650, so I'll be on national routes rather than motorways, and will be camping where possible. I speak English, a little French, and ok Spanish, but don't have any Greek, Bulgarian, Romanian, Hungarian, or Russian, and very little German and Italian.

Thanks!

Colm

Hi Phoenix,
Bit early for us, but the timing is close and some of the route is the same!

We weren't planning at this late stage to return from Turkey via Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary. Our plan was to ride back from Turkey's west coast across the top of Greece (910 km) and catch the ferry to Venice from Igoumenitsa (962 km).

Will send a P.M.
Cheers
John

You never know?

Hi Phoenix,
I will start from Spain inside the next week and will be going to same countries as You. The exact route I don·t know, but if we are in the same place at a certain moment, it would be great to have some chat and drink together!
Cheers.... Dan

Dan,

Sounds good.. I don't really have an exact itinerary yet, but if we keep each other updated, we should be able to organise to meet up somewhere along the way!

Hi there easyroller.

Given that I'm leaving about 2 weeks before you, but heading via Spain, then back up through France and Italy to Greece, then Bulgaria, etc, our trajectories could definitely coincide at some point alright.. keep your eyes open for a green / purple Kawasaki KLR with a black tank bag, smoked Givi screen, ally boxes, and a Givi back box.

A camping and buddy is always welcome along the way. It's always easier (and safer) to do free camping when there is a group!

Where do you plan on camping, by the way? I hadn't really thought too much about that just yet.

Hi guys, I'll set off tomorrow, heading from south Germany to Romania in a few days. There I want to stay maybe a week or two. Then carrying on towards Turkey. I might be too early though...

If not, email me: anaum[at]gmx[dot]de

Sounds like you'll be moving at least a week ahead of me alright, but maybe one of the others will be in the vicinity. Send us an update in a few days to let us know where you are, and what your rough plans are.
