Your timing is impeccable. I'll just leave this here. Taken this morning...

Ah, excellent! Looks like Dubai, if I'm not mistaken?*
Looking forward to resumption of the Youtube videos - one of the (very) few vlogs I've enjoyed watching.


*Ok, may have sneaked a look at the GPS tag

So. Federal Iraq, Basra and Baghdad is utterly insane.

Got stranded for a while because of some shit fuel.

Bulgaria or greece next, but it should be easy from here.

Let's hear your suggestions of what to check out between here and Calais

Get yourself to Dubrovnik - definitely worth a look if it's not too busy - and then ride up the coast road all along the Adriatic. One of my all-time favourites.

When is the next vlog episode coming out, then? Can only take so much sanding...

That looks pretty worthwhile. I'll have a look on the way to zeljava airfield

Bulgaria is weird...

As far as suggestions go. Good effort. What a weird little town

Next stop, zeljava, then the Nurburgring. Any other minor detour spots would be grand Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Bosnia is worth a look, notably for the contrast with EU-rich Croatia. You find yourself riding through loads of completely deserted, destroyed villages, 30-odd years after the end of the Balkan War. Very poignant. Even the cities like Mostar (famous for it's medieval bridge which was destroyed and later rebuilt) still has very many bomb sites and obvious war damage.

Wouldn't be detouring at the expense of the coast road though! (We rode outwards via Bosnia and inbound up the coast). Safe riding

I camped in Bosnia last night actually. Great place. I followed the river all the way down from Serbia before crossing towards the coast
