Back from the Balkans

The Ljubljanica river in late afternoon, looking resplendent in Spring guise.

So, three weeks, five countries, eleven towns and cities, three languages, four currencies, many different dialects and a whole host of beers later, and my epic trek around the Balkans is at an end.

I feel particularly lucky to have been able to traverse this region of Europe, with its incredible diversity, welcoming nature, spectacular scenery and enthralling history, in the company of a great friend and for less than a grand. There is far too much to say here so all I’ll add is, keep an eye on This Chemical World for a full write up of my adventures, with many a terrible pun, historical observation and classic quote in toe. For now, hurry up 8.30 train, I’d like to get home.
