Day 13 & 14: Kosovo

07.09.2019, Dobërdol We woke up late, still having to process that gigantic dinner we had the day before, just to be greeted by a massive breakfast. Petulla, peperoni, sausages, bread, salad, tea. Abe’s food (my aunt) just kept coming. After that we slowly made our way to the capital, Prishtinë. I never new much about […]

Day 10, 11 & 12: The Dog

This is a special one. Read the whole thing! On day 10 we decided we wanted to drive up to the (formerly thought to be the) highest mountain of Montenegro. Just the drive there was already breathtaking. Beautiful green hills in the shadows of tall, sunlit mountains with clouds flowing above and across them. We […]

Day 8 & 9: Mostar, Dubrovnik, Kotor

02.09.2019, Mostar Short stop in Mostar before driving to Dubrovnik after having decided to skip Sarajevo. Famous for its old bridge with the tradition of young men jumping from 26m into the river in june. We saw someone stepping onto it, preparing to jump, but they didn’t in the end, which was kind of disappointing. […]

Day 6 & 7: Una National Park , Train stations and mines

31.08.2019, Una National Park We crossed the border to Bosnia for the first time legally and where immediately confronted with the fact that Bosnia & Herzegovina is not part of the EU. Everything is poorer, dirtier, untidier. In a nutshell: It feels way more like the Balkans I know than Croatia and Slovenia. We drove […]

Day 4 & 5: first beach and Plitvice National Lakes

29.08.19, Senj Our first day in Croatia wasn’t very spectacular. We entered Croatia, drove along its coast and went swimming at a small public beach in Senj after buying loads of food in a supermarket. We found out that finding a nice, quiet spot at the coast is quite hard, since almost everything is private […]

Day 2 & 3: Slovenia!

27.08.19, nördlich vom Triglav Nationalpark Nach einer bequemen Nacht auf diesem sehr billigen, grossartigen Campingplatz, machten wir uns auf den Weg nach Villach, wo wir in einem Shoppingcenter Halt machten. Es war Pascals Geburtstag, dementsprechend kauften wir ein wenig Alkohol und ein kleines Geschenk für ihn. Wir suchten nach der Grenze nach einem Stück schlechter […]

26.08.19 47.3221863, 11.6838523, Camping Plankenhof, Pill, Austria We’re on our way. Jason told us, they’d get up at 9 and be by my place around 11. So knowing him, I got up at like 10:30 and watched some episodes of 13 Reasons Why until 13:00 until I brought everything downstairs to the road. We then […]

Day 0: Preparations (25.08.19)

The time has come. We’re at it again. We’re embarking on a road trip. This summer, after having gone to Tomorrowland, Scandinavia, Australia and Morocco in the previous years, we’re going to the Balkans. And with that, I’m also heading towards my roots. This is actually kind of interesting to me, since it has now […]
