DickWent down through Hungary, Serbia and Macedonia before Christmas. What do you want to known? BTW when you get to Greece don't call it Macedonia, its FYROM! The Former Yugoslavian Republic Of Macedonia!!!
As has been said apart from the route via Bulgaria or Italy you will need green card cover, some insurers will issue some won't especially for Albania. You can buy 3rd party insurance at the border. I have been through Albania as well. If you are transiting this countries only it is pretty straightforward. If you want to go off piste let me know which route you choose and I'll tell you my experienceThanks Dick. I suppose we would like some pointers on routes, 'must see', places not to go. Any security issues. Availability of LPG. What to take. Anything anyone thinks important.
Did this on our first trip to Morocco and learnt a lot before we went. Returned many times.
Agreed, they are particularly incensed at the Macedonian appropriation of Alexander and Philip too Geoff. I noticed in Skopje that their is a lot of new statues of them both! I was surprised though to see that it is referred to as FYROM on the international insurers green card.Dick
I have been laughing at the Greeks for years over this dispute over the name. Also the Greek Officials who have been earning off the dispute must have been 'laughing al the way to the [Swiss] bank'
The irony is that the word 'Macedonia' is still in the name.
Can you imagine the uproar in Greece if it were referred to as the 'Former Province of the Ottoman Empire'? Or the outcry from other countries if the Greeks insited that parts of the Middle East were referred to as 'Former parts of the 'Empire' of Phillip of Macedonia'?
Where I live in southern Poland was once part of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and names reflect it. People have got over it, but some Greeks can be childish.
