Bosnia and Herzegovina is wonderful, we spent only  five days there ( no camp sites)  but made the most of every minute. The people all friendly and welcoming, the food great (and cheap) and the countryside is wonderful to admire. Deep gorges, rivers, mountains and well sealed roads to drive on while appreciating the scenary. Sleeping in Banksy in the very heart of Sarajevo was a great experience, since two armed guards were just on the next corner we thought we had nothing to worry about. 

The heat and humidity has played a part in our decision to take route B which is north from Hungary and over to Finland. Although Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey are countries we want to visit, they will have to just wait for the time being............

We past through the north east of Croatia in 24 hours to the boarder of Hungary where the custom officer decided to search Banksy inside out then sniffer dogs..........well its all part of the experience I guess. Five busy days seeing the hi-lights including Budapest, Lake Balaton and our favourite Pecs. Even though we have flying round like Japanese tourist we still have had time to get a few activities in like cycling sixty kms round lake Balaton. Marja sarted the journey with a swollen knee and came back with cuts n bruises............due to a young boy not looking where he was going.
Slovakia went by in a few days with enough time to sample the local food and culture. From what we seen it is a beautiful country including the awesome views of the Tatra mountains.

The last few days have been spent soaking up the atmosphere in Kracow and enjoying some fat Polish dumplings (food)..............The weather is definately in our favour as the fleece and jeans have come out today. I think we can say goodbye to the uniform of sandles n shorts that we have so got used to the last few weeks. We are now in Lublin and we are off for another delicous cake n coffee ( this has replaced our daily diet of ice-cream for now) .

Banksy has had a couple of new tyres in B&H and after nearly 11000kms he is still purring along.
