I'm stuck in the Balkans. Albania, Croatia, Macedonia, and Serbia. There are a lot of people from these nations in Australia, but it seems to me that not many people know about the Balkans. Even less visit it. So, I can tell you that the people are friendly, the food is great, and it's the cheapest area of Europe. It's not far off South East Asia prices. If more people knew what this place had to offer, it would be swarming with tourists.

European winter can be harsh. I haven't seen more than 10 degrees for almost six months. Often, it's minus - day and night. The cities are alive. People are friendly, mostly. I'm travelling behind the Iron Curtain, meandering my way through Eastern Europe. Just to show I'm still alive, and that this blog hasn't been forgotten about, here's some photos from the last few weeks.
As you can see, in more ways than one, I'm a long way from Perth.
I've now been on the road for 228 days.

Update. I'm currently in the heart of Western Europe, in the country of The Netherlands. It's cold, it's dark, and as a result, fireworks and weed are readily available. However, I now find myself constantly dreaming of warmer destinations. Of all the tropical paradises I have spent my days in, there's only one that is planted firmly at the top of my thoughts. Thailand. It's a magical place. A very special place. A warm and soft place known for far more, than just ping pong balls.
