Every once in a while, we all get these crazy ideas . Sometimes you dont realize it is a crazy idea until you do it; like my last roadtrip of the Golden triangle , during the heights of Delhi's coldest winter in a long time. This however sounded crazy from the beginning.
We rent bikes from Frankfurt, and tour all the way to Athens, covering Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovinia, Macedonia and finally Greece. Of course we are not rich enough to tour like those retired grumpy old men who ride big old Harleys or BMW GS (not yet hehe!). So we do all we can to cut our costs. We decided to camp wherever possible, cook food while camping and stay at youth hostels when not camping. We also managed to couchsurf at few places.
