Well we thought it would be a good idea to drop down in to Greece to get a Gyro kebab and to avoid the big Bulgaria to Turkey border. Not only was everywhere closed due to us arriving during siesta time (the place was like a ghost town), but the Greece to Turkey border doesn't issue insurance green cards! So back to Bulgaria we go πŸ˜‘ We're still on target to reach Istanbul tonight though!

So last night night we really struggled to find somewhere to wild camp. It was getting dark and the mosquitos were annoying the hell out of us so we stopped the night at a hostel in Plovdiv for 19 Lev, which is about Β£9! This morning we found a little Toyota parts shop in town so stocked up on a couple of auxillary belts for the Yaris and then found a drone shop where we bought some spare propellers... As we may have crashed the drone back in Switzerland πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Thank you and good bye Bulgaria πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬, now on the road to Turkey πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·

So yesterday we left Austria, crossed through Slovenia and stayed the night at the Ecoethno Village in Strug, Croatia πŸ‡­πŸ‡· A beautiful little complex in the Croatian country side and the best host we could ever ask for! We spent the evening drinking beer with the locals (of course they had to mention the world cup πŸ™„) and watching the fireworks , before somehow ending up drinking tequila with a hen party.... That's as much as we can remember! Once again we never paid a penny for anything, thank you to the owner for his amazing generosity! πŸ™ŒπŸ•πŸ» Next stop - Serbia!

Even though it was Friday and everyone was ready to go home for the weekend, the staff at Toyota Centar Zagreb in Croatia couldn't have been more helpful! A quick check over and another look at our leaky gearbox to find that we haven't lost as much oil as we imagined. They didn't have the correct seals in stock but they did top the oil up and gave us some extra to take with us πŸ‘ Cheers guys!

335 miles of Austrian country side done today πŸ‘Œ We've arrived at an equestrian center with a patch of grass to pitch our tents in Deutschfeistritz, just north of Graz. Our original plan was to drive through Hungary tomorrow but we may now opt for Slovenia and Croatia instead! We'll decide in the morning 😜

Took a ride to Hoch Imst in Austria this morning to ride the worlds longest Alpine coaster! What an experience! Although not so much for Dan, as half way down a wasp got stuck in his t-shirt and stung him 7 times on the back! 🐝😩 Now a 6 and a half hour drive east to the Hungarian border πŸ‘

Quick pass through Liechtenstein before we reach Austria today and we came across a road side bar in the small town of Ruggell. Due to today being a public holiday in the country, the bar was actually closed, but the elderly owner came out to say hello and gave us some local beer! 🍻 Cheers Liechtenstein! 🍻

The Swiss people keep on giving! We had a couple of worries with the Yaris, 1 being an oil leak and 2, a rotational noise coming from a front wheel. We pulled in at a local garage to find a very helpful team of mechanics who were gracious enough to look over the car for us, pressure cleaned the oil from underneath and even drove Dave to the local supermarket so we could buy a torque wrench! Once again the lovely people of Switzerland insisted on not taking any money from us and settled for photo with the car instead! What a country! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­

Night 3 - Switzerland πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ After struggling to find somewhere to wild camp and the darkness closing in, we settled for an established campsite in Euthal, on the edge of lake Sihlsee. Before we finished setting up camp, the owners came over to say hello. They had seen the Yaris in the car park, read up on what we're trying to achieve and gave us our money back to go towards our charity, along with a bar of Swiss chocolate! A beautiful place and beautiful people! Highly recommend a visit πŸ’™

What an amazing view from tonight's camp spot! We're 420ft up in the south-west mountains of Germany, looking down at the beautiful town of Bad Peterstal-Griesbach. The burgers are on the grill, cider in hand, this is the life πŸ‘Œ
