Now in Bulgaria, having crossed Macedonia, where there was only one campsite open, an that was a throwback to the gulags! Our last visit to Bulgaria ended in disaster, when the river at Plovdiv burst its banks (in 2005). Daily Mail readers may be surprised to hear we really enjoyed Albania, the people are hard working and friendly, and resourceful. Roads are rapidly improving, and we have been on far worse roads in the last 2 days in Bulgaria.
One close call in Macedonia - sitting under a tree reading a book, a loud crack - and a large bough landed only 5 feet away.

Romania - and interesting monastic paintings
We're now at one of our favorite sites, Oude Wilg in Romania, owned by a Dutch/Romanian couple.
I have updated my blog, http://balkanbeetle.blogspot.com, the latest update covers Romania so far
A Google Earth type view of our route through Montenegro, Albania & Macedonia, callected by a satellite tracker, can be seen here:
(Select map view, and stop or pause the rather naff little red car whizzing round the route, then use the page just like Google Earth with our route superimposed)
Unfortunately there is a gap in Albania where I failed to turn the device on properly
