Travel partner(s) to Eastern Europe

Hi lovely travellers!

I am living in Istanbul at the moment, and planning to go on a trip to some Eastern European countries. Since I need a visa for both Greece and Bulgaria, and also I am really lazy to apply for a visa, my plan is to take a round-trip plane from Istanbul to Tirana.

I am most probably going to meet my Albanian friend in Tirana, and we will drive with his car to Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia and then back to Albania. I don't know how much time my friend has, but at some point I may want to separate from my friend to visit Macedonia and Serbia as well before going back to Albania.

We may stay with couchsurfers, camp or in hostels, depending on what's available at that time.

I am planning to start this trip around August 5th, 6th, or 7th, and come back to Istanbul on the 18th the latest.

People from all genders, nationalities, and ages are welcome! Let me know if you want to join me on this trip, and we can meet up for a drink and plan it out...

Hey there!!
Well, it does not seem like you're planning to hit Ukraine, but if you somehow end up in Kiev, don't hesitate to contact me.

Have an amazing journey!

Hi Saule,

Hi Pelin, this is Tan. Your travel plan seems interesting to me. though i've been to most western european countries i've never been to the ones you have on your road map (only been to slovenia to sleep one night as i couldn't find a hotel in trieste) The thing is i'll have a short visit to odessa between 2nd and 6th of august and i might not catch you up if you leave earlier. pls let me know just in case. bye.

Hi Tan,
Thank you for your msg, but I think I won't be able to go early and also I won't pass from UK this time. Enjoy your trip to Odessa! :)
