UK to Greece (through central Balkans and Turkey) mid August-end October

Hello cyclists,

I am 28 years old guy from Greece with some experience to bicycle touring. 19th of August 2018 I will start my 2-3 months trip from London to Greece through central Balkans.(the route will be possible from London->Calais->Brussels->Luxembourg->Zurich->Milan->Venice->Ljubljana->Zagreb->Graz->Vienna->Bratislava->Budapest->Belgrade->Sofia->Izmir->Bodrum->Athens) I like cycling average 60-100km per day, depending on the weather, the difficulty, the beauty of the land, the cultural events found on the road and of course the feeling!!! I prefer sleeping in the nature (wild camping) and every 3-4 days in campsites, warmshowers, couchserfers.

I would be happy to spend a part of the trip with warmshowers if it is possible.

It would be great to find someone interested in considering doing this trip together even partly. Moreover, if someone wants to follow but has some different preferences I am open to discuss.

Cheers,
Marios

Γειά σου Μάριε,

Γειά σου Μάριε,

Αν περάσεις από εδώ (Mannheim, Γερμανία) ευχαρίστως θα σε φιλοξενήσουμε και αν επιτρέπουν οι ημέρες μπορεί να σε συνοδεύσουμε για λίγο! Εμείς μόλις γυρίσαμε από ποδήλατο μηνών στη Νότια Αμερική:) Εκεί γνώρισα (Χρύσα) και έναν Βουλγαρο από τη Σόφια που διέσχισε Αλάσκα - Ushuaia και μου είπε ότι φιλοξενει ποδηλάτες στο σπίτι του. Μπορείς να τον βρεις στα κοινωνικά δικτυα ως cycle4recycle. Καλό ταξίδι! Ειδικά στα Βαλκάνια θα είναι πολύ ωραία πιστεύω!

Καλημέρα Χρύσα,

Καλημέρα Χρύσα,

Θα προσπαθήσω να περάσω γιατί θέλω πολύ να ακούσω τις ιστορίες σου από Παταγονία. Σας παρακολουθούσα και ζηλεύω απίστευτα. Θα σας στείλω για σίγουρα εκείνο τον καιρό και θα σας πω πιο συγκεκριμένα ημερομηνία κλπ ώστε να ακολουθήσετε αν θέλετε. Ευχαριστώ απίστευτα πολύ!!!

Μάριος

Hey Marios,

Hey Marios,

I'm doing a very similar trip, but am leaving from the south of Belgium on the 8th of July. I am planning to be in Athens by the 18th of August.

Good luck on your trip. Let me know, if I could give you some tips when I've finished my trip.

Hi Ruth,

Hi Ruth,

You will go from the cities that I have mensioned or from the road close to the adriatic sea? Because last summer I did the trip from Venice to Athens but passing from the road close to Adriatic sea. Maybe I can give you also some details for your trip. Moreover, when you will be finishing your trip I will be in Greece so we can meet there.

Cheers,

Marios
