Salerno and Pompei

ITALY | Friday, 8 Dec 2006 | Views [1728]

It was another hour of driving around to find the car hire company and then get myself a train.  I knew i was going to Paulo and from there to Palermo in Sicily.  I know this as i had decided it 3 nights before.  Upon arriving at Paulo i discover that ... Read more >

Cosenza and Cotronei

ITALY | Thursday, 7 Dec 2006 | Views [1527]

When i finally arrive i realise i was right in that i picked a large town (i was hoping for a car hire company).  This place is huge! and dark and deserted and seemingly in the middle of no-where.  i do get a taxi driver who rips me off (the second one ... Read more >


Ferry to Igoumenitsa and then Bari, Bari to Cosenza

ITALY | Wednesday, 6 Dec 2006 | Views [2301]

Its a fairly quick and easy journey to Igoumenitsa on the Greek mainland, but the info i have been given is false again :(  The only ferry tonight is it Bari in Italy, leaving about midnight and arriving at 09.30.  So i take the ferry classed as a student ... Read more >


Corfu

GREECE | Tuesday, 5 Dec 2006 | Views [951]

So it's only on the morning i take the ferry to Corfu that i FINALLY decide I'm not going to Greece and the islands, i just can't do them justice in the 3 weeks before Xmas and the weather isn't what I'd like.  Instead I'm going to try and get to Spain ... Read more >

Saranda

ALBANIA | Sunday, 3 Dec 2006 | Views [1797]

Saranda The bus left at 8am, but it was not a great journey.  We passed an accident on the way, a lorry full of wood had gone off the side of the road, and we got their just in time to see all the blood and gore.  The drivers here aren't great - cracked ... Read more >

Berat

ALBANIA | Saturday, 2 Dec 2006 | Views [1156]

Berat is described in my guide book as the most beautiful city in Albania...hmmm. The view from the castle above the town is spectacular and from there it certainly could be :) I'm given a warm greeting in my little restaurant/hotel and i instantly ... Read more >


Tirana

ALBANIA | Friday, 1 Dec 2006 | Views [1145]

Hmmm - I'm now in Albania, what are my expectations?  The guide book suggests little men waving guns...i don't think so.  My first experience however is a very friendly welcome from the only hostel in Albania.  I've spent a few days by myself so I'm ... Read more >

Ohrid

MACEDONIA | Monday, 27 Nov 2006 | Views [911] | Comments [1]

The r is rolled so the place is pronounced more like Orrid - but orrid it isn't, it's lovely, although quite touristy.  Amazingly there is a tourist info at the bus station, although the girl is pretty useless and not pretty and she's wearing sunglasses ... Read more >

Skopje

MACEDONIA | Saturday, 25 Nov 2006 | Views [1088] | Comments [1]

It's what in reality is a nightmare of a journey via train from Kragujevac, taking nearly 11 hours, but strangely it doesn't phase me.  it's only my arrival that does that - i put it down to hunger and that I'm trying to recover from a cold. My first ... Read more >

SERBIA | Wednesday, 22 Nov 2006 | Views [1944]

My Aunties husbands fathers (Ted) wife (Ljiljana) is part Serbian and they live in a little town called Grocka about 30km south of Belgrade.  i had decided to take the overnight train to Belgrade - i didn't appreciate overnight didn't necessarily mean ... Read more >

BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA | Monday, 20 Nov 2006 | Views [885]

So it's not what i expect - it really is a little big town.  We take a tram ride pass the bridge where Arch Duke Francis Ferdinand was shot (ring a bell?) and find a room in a locals house - a local who we call Auntie from then on (she keeps lending ... Read more >
