Over the past two weeks or so I helped a couple friends return their touring van from Athens to London. We made a roadtrip of it and stopped on the way; I had to get out in Zagreb to head back to Berlin but they should be arriving in London in the next few days. We traveled through Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, and Croatia. AMA?

How did the level of affluence/poverty compare with what you've seen in the US?

Most of the places I visited, including Bosnia, felt more or less generally on the European level. Not like western Europe, but definitely more developed than a place like Mexico or Turkey. They certainly weren't wealthy, but affluent enough, and with fairly good roads and infrastructure for the most part. I think you could find places roughly comparable to Bosnia's development in the US, probably in Appalachia or in Alabama and Mississippi. Albania on the other hand felt very undeveloped and very crowded.

Are there generally better use of bike lanes, or are roads old and small?

Yeah the food is great. I also came back with four water bottles filled with homebrew fruit brandy (rakija) I bought on the side of the road in various places.


There aren't really bike lanes, but we saw a few people doing long distance bike trips. Also some locals use them for transportation (hello old ass Albanian dude biking down the wrong way on the freeway!)

Looks like you passed through Ioannina, which is my dad's homebase. The new highway actually passes his village, so you would have gone right by it. How'd ya like dem mountains?

They were good mountains. We actually picked the car up in Albania where it was getting repaired after an Albanian dude rammed it. We stayed the night in Ioannina, but because we are cheap as hell and it was Friday we just stayed out drinking all night instead of booking a place to sleep and took the first bus to the Albanian border in the morning. We hitchhiked to a town and then caught a bus to Vlorė in what was one of the longest days of my life, so long and hot and miserable in fact that when we arrived in Vlorė and found out the car wasn't finished we were so sweaty and dirty and sunburned and exhausted that we decided we weren't all that cheap after all and booked a room in a beachside hotel with a waterslide into the pool

They were friends of my old roommate, she is the tall one. They are from Sweden and New Zealand, but I didn't know them before the trip. I didn't bang any of them.


As for English knowledge, it varies, but most young people speak it, especially near cities. I could speak German with some old people as well.

Albania is again different from the former Yugoslavian countries. In Albania, English is pretty rare, but a lot of people speak Italian so I was able to get by pretty well by speaking Spanish slowly and using hand gestures.
