Insurance - Croatia is in the eu now, so covered anyway. As Louis said, Groupama covered all the rest for us except Kosovo, which is mostly still not recognised as a country. Hopefully it will be the same with Aegis. But we got insurance at the border for Kosovo with a nice certificate and a handbook which weighed about 3kg! Made us feel like we got value for money!

Montenegro and Serbia are EU candidate countries now, and Bosnia and Albania are potential candidates, so that might make life easier.

Last year, there were no ferries to or from Trieste to Igoumenitsa, only from Venice on Anek, but I think Minoan are sailing from Trieste again.The crossing will be a mill pond. Take your own tie down straps.

Have a great trip!

Right, the GPS is loaded with as many maps as I could fit into it, the Donkey Loop is stuffed with sleeping
bags and the tent I'm all packed and ready to go, !

The last time we rode outside the EU we got cover from GroupAMA through Carole Nash. A thread over
on the Other forum lists all the countries we'd need Green Card cover for:


I'll give them a call as soon as I can to confirm they can/will and how much.

All I need to do now is get out trailriding three or four times a week till May for practice, I don't want to be
slowing anyone down.

Hello Daithi,

Which gps maps do you take?
I am looking for them too.

For Albania I found the Geopolitical Basemap (free), which is very detailed.
I can look up the source if anyone is interested.

We used:

CityNavigator (latest version) - good coverage of roads and POI's in Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Greece, less good in Bosnia, Montenegro, not much good in Albania
AdriaRoute 4,1 - very good coverage, including tracks, patchy in Bosnia, Albania, good POI's (not Albania)
SCG route 2.8NT - good in Albania, including tracks
Albania Geopolitical basemap

Albania coverage is poor in the mountains and north east, better on the coast. There's lots of new road building going on, sometimes on the old route the trails took, sometimes a completely different route. As usual, if you ask people, they will always direct you on tarmac roads where possible so be prepard to ignore advice!

Paper maps:

Freytag and Berndt
Albania 1:400000
Montenegro 1:150000
Kroatien Nord 1:200000
Kroatien Kuste 1:200000
Bosnien Herzegowina 1:200000
Slowenien 1:200000

For an good overview of the whole region, Marco Polo Slovenja, Hvraska - includes Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro

Berin, your post prompted me to have a closer look at the AdriaXL vs City Navigator, I'd assumed because there was more detail in the Topo map that there would be more tracks, seems that's not necessarily the case.

I loaded the Topo and CN maps on the Montana, it looks like it would be great to see the terrain your tracklog leads you through while you're riding through it but if a track leads to a dead end you'd have to disable the Topo maps to see the trails that CN have and Topo doesn't. The Topo map seems to hide the CN detail.

Edit: On a totally different topic, I was considering mooses because of my misfortune in France with an incurable puncture last time, good idea or bad ???

When you get of the boat it might turn out that you have an almost blank map of some countries. Especially Albania. Who are you gonna blame then? Muddymatt?

Daithi.
Yep, I've often found that - topo maps are good for walkers/hikers, but often don't show all the raods and tracks. But good for seeing detail - though in anger it can bve easy to follow a contour trail or some such thinking it's a track. I tuen the map on to get a look at the terrain, then turn it off again as I follow the tracks as the screen can get cluttered.
