We leave Turkey via the main Highway into Bulgaria where we spend the first night at the Sakar Hill Camping Ground in Biser just inside the border.
Martin Sherley and Matt welcome us with a cold Beer, Olives and Cheese. We all sit around and have a good chat, exchanging travel stories and getting tips on where to go and what to see. Then a few more Aussies pull up in a camper van and some more members of Martins family and friends join us for a BBQ and a good time.
What a great welcome to Bulgaria.
Our next stop is Sofia where we happen to cross ways again with Pascal and Aria.
From here we head straight up to Croatia. We visited the Plitvice National Park with its amazing Limestone Lakes and waterfalls.
We then followed the mountains down to Split and along the coast back up Zadar, Rijeka and into Slovenia.
We spent a few nights at Lake Bohiniska and then went on to Ljubljana the capitol from where we went east to Maribor and up to Graz in Austria. Vienna was also on our list with all the Castles and Museums.
We head west along the Donau valley to Wachau, Strasbourg and then the ultimate Austrian road, the Gross Glockner a mountain pass over 3000m with roads that are spotless.
Next was the Dolomites in Italy and then back into Austria and finnaly on the 25th of August we entered Switzerland.
So after 8 1/2 months and 37000 km 3 sets of tyers, 2 flats, 1 battery, 6 oil changes, a never ending sore butt, many smiles and a few tears,countless potholes and close to 6000 photos our journey has come to a end. We are not sure if we should be happy or sad.
WE'VE MADE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
