Balkans Burn, Part I of III: Varna, Bulgaria to Giannitsa, Greece

On August 5th, 2008 Pera Baity and I set out to explore the Balkans. We were riding antique Russian motorcycles; mine is a 50's vintage M72 and Pera's on a 1960's Ural M61. The journey would take us over three thousand kilometers through five countries.

This is the first segment of a three part video documenting the journey: starting from my home in Varna, Bulgaria we ride south down the Black Sea coast and through southern Bulgaria. After crossing the Greek border at Svilengrad we spend a night in Orestiada then continue south to the Aegean Sea where we stop in Alexandroupoli, then continue east to Kavala and finally into Giannitsa, at the foot of the Pindus Mountains.

hey folks, if you like it share it- I've been working on this project for 3 years and we don't have any kind of budget for a real screening. My only chance at an audience comes from you :)

  1. Charlie: excellent job on the video so far - as we settle in to winter in Canada, this was an interesting and inspiring trip to watch. Looking forward to part 2!
