8000km Motorbike Trip Across The Balkans - Jacob Laukaitis

Jacob sent us a video edit of his trip in the balkans on his Honda Dominator NX650. Enjoy!

 

I was born and raised in Eastern Europe, but have never been to any of the Balkan States. So right after I came back from an 8 month-long trip around Asia, I bought a motorbike and left, completely alone. I drove 8,000 km across 15 countries and it was one of the best things I've done to date.

These are the countries I went through:

 

Lithuania > Poland > Czech Republic > Austria > Slovenia > Croatia > Bosnia and Herzegovina > Montenegro > Albania > Greece > Macedonia > Kosovo > Serbia > Romania > Hungary > Slovakia > Poland > Lithuania.

 

I skipped only two of the Balkan States: Bulgaria (because people told me it's not too interesting) and Moldova (because it would have been such a long drive the opposite direction).

 

I did not plan this route in advance and I didn't even have a map. So I'd literally decide where I'm going next every night at my hotel rooms.

 

I'm not sure what was the the one thing I could call 'the best I've seen throughout the trip'. However, I really enjoyed driving down the coast of Croatia; doing the best mountain passes in Europe - Transfagarasan and Transalpina in Romania; exploring the ancient town of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina; checking out the the UNESCO heritage site Meteora in Greece; and so much more!
