Balkans on the Cruiser 16 countries 13 days 6 riders 6100 km
 
Hi,

A few days ago I finished my third trip. It this year me and my five friends travelled 6100 km through 16 countries on Balkans. We had only 13 days to do it. I've got a lot of photos and I would like to share an adventure with you.

In foreword..
We are guys which don't need BMW GS or similar kind of tourist motorcycles...
We travel on the coursier, custom etc. me on Suzuki M109R.


Our journal we started from Poland through Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

This is the map with GPS track which did recorded via android application "My Tracks" from Google.

Granted, but I spy with my little eye a Honda XL1000V Varadero in the pack. That is one brilliant touring machine!

There, at the bottom is Mostar - informal capital of Herzegovina. The town situated only 60 meters above sea level, There, in May of 1992 took place in internecine fighting Bosniaks and Croats against the Serbs. From May 1993 they beat already Croats from Bosnian. It was not until 25 February 1994 a ceasefire was signed between Croats and Bosniaks. Currently, the city is divided into two hostile parts throughout - Bosnian (Muslim) and Croatian. Even five years after the war, the city was not safe. Still skirmishes occurred between the people of both parts. Now the situation has stabilized, although people still hard to forget the crimes and cruelty of those days. (coordinate)

During my trip I saw a lot of "tracks of wartime" (I'm not sure it's correctly in English) Those photos I make at Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina:

There is an information about war and story of this city: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mostar
