    Sarajevo- a place of contemporary history

    After the winding but also exhausting route we arrived in Sarajevo in the afternoon. Over the IOverländer App we had found a camping site above the city. Arrived there we could park with an unbelievable view over the city. After a little recovery time at the camp we wanted to explore the city. Already while driving through in the afternoon we had noticed the contrast between modernity and the traces of war that can still be found in many places. It is not yet a whole generation ago that 25 years ago the city of Sarajevo was besieged by, mainly Serbian, troops and during the battles for supremacy in the…

    Bosnia-Herzegovina – the land of waterfalls

    Let’s go to Bosnia. The joy was great and the travel fever had gripped us again. We were in Croatia for over a month. Driving through Bosnia seemed totally exciting, almost as if we had just started. A few kilometres behind the border the first sign already caught our attention. The waterfalls at Strbački buk in the Una National Park! Waterfalls! There was something. Hadn’t we just stood in front of the gates to the Plitvitcer National Park? It was worth a try. We drove behind the signs. What a good idea. The waterfalls and the road along Una were not only beautiful but also deserted. We had almost the…

    What takes a while will be good in the end

    After the super nice time with our friends in Croatia, we actually wanted to leave early to take advantage of the summer temperatures in Bosnia and Kosovo. As you know, we were still waiting for the (second) parcel with Sentas medicine, as the first one was confiscated by the Croatian police. We had an approximate idea when it would arrive, but only an approximate one. In the small village Obrš, above the holiday resort Mošćenička Draga, we found a nice parking place. We had a great panoramic view over the sea, all the way to Rijeka, no one from the locals disturbed our existence and we enjoyed the peace outside…

    Croatia in high season – never again…

    After our quiet week on the island of Pašman we had recharged our batteries. Our next destination, the Outlook Festival in Pula, in the north of Croatia, should be mentioned here only as a side note. It was a very interesting experience to take part in an English production (okay, the English have the best bass music in Europe, probably all over the world) abroad. But I’ve heard that if you can’t say anything good, you shouldn’t say anything at all. Now about 25.000 drunk Englishmen there is really not much more to say. The music was good and loud, the sound systems were awesome and our neighbours on the…

    Biogradska Gora

    Biogradska Gora: a national park where, with a bit of luck, you can park (or camp) directly on the water and wake up with a beautiful view of the glacier lake. We arrived late in the evening. During the day, some visitors came for hiking, but in the evening, one has one’s peace and quiet and if one uses the day for hiking in the beautiful surroundings, the tourists do not disturb one during the day. There are toilets and a restaurant. Senta could walk around freely. Many hiking trails leave directly from the parking lot and the peace and pleasant temperatures in the mountains made this beautiful place a…

    Croatia

    After we had brought Miri to the airport, the journey continued for us to Dubrovnik. The beautiful old town attracted us and since it was on our route anyway, we planned a stopover. But first we had to change to the hustle and bustle that was waiting for us. The city was crowded with tourists and also we pushed ourselves with the masses through the old lanes and walls. It’s nice there, but you can hardly really enjoy it. A walk on the famous city wall costs 25 Euro. Quite cheeky as we thought. We checked in at the only and therefore much too expensive (45 Euro per night) camping…

    Montenegro- the Mountains

    For the first day we chose an adventure: Rafting on the Tara River. From the campsite we were taken to the Tara Gorge and introduced to our boat captain. Goran – an older man who didn’t speak a word of English with a Schnapsfahne around 11 in the morning of her Gleichen searches! Well great! Our troop was in a good mood and when we had boarded the boat and were off paddled the mood really took off. Goran explained to us in broken German/English Mischmasch he was the Michael Schumacher among the rafting boat leaders and we, a boat full of Germans let us of course not lumpen the…

    Montenegro- the coast

    After we left our nightspot, a real secret spot for all Montenegro travellers, we drove in a good mood towards Podgorica to pick up my friend Miri, who wanted to accompany us on her summer vacation for a few days. Of course I was really happy about this visit from home! I was a bit excited then. Everything went well at the airport. We bagged Miri and went off to the water. It was ungracious 35 degrees and after the night in the fresh mountains we melted in all directions. Originally we wanted to stop at Lake Skadar and spend the first night there. The huge lake, half of which…

    Serbia as transit route

    On Friday we really had to get away, because we wanted to be in Montenegro on the 19th of Podgoridsa to pick up my girlfriend Miri. Now we had three days to drive through Serbia to the south. The departure from Hungary and the entry to Serbia were totally uncomplicated. We did not even have to open the roof box and were allowed to simply continue driving. In Serbia we looked for a place near Novi Sad in the nearby national park and spent the first night there. The next morning we woke up with a great view over the surrounding valleys. Since we had not found a gas station…

    Budapest

    The capital welcomed us even in the late evening with oven temperatures…Luckily the apartment was nice and cool. Unfortunately after the “effort” of the ride my flu came back a bit and I still felt tired and not cured. I spent the day writing a blog and in the evening I met Martin, who had been rolling through the city all day. The city scooters we indulged in are really worth their weight in gold in the city. You can get from A to B so fast and easy and since the heat has also subsided a bit, it’s really fun to explore the city on wheels. In the evening…
