Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Home. After a mad dash across Italy and France, I can finally stop and draw breath. The problem was that, as ever, there was not enough time. There never is. Every place we travelled through, we went slower, stayed longer than we had time for. And it still wasn’t slow...

Montenegro and Albania

Montenegro and Albania

Montenegro was a bit disappointing and sad, we kept waiting for it to get better but in never did. Same old broken down feel and we only have Albania to look forward to tonight! Cross the border with no issues and late at night we have no prospect of a camp site but...
