And so we arrived in Trieste on Saturday week 2 (1 week after leaving Portsmouth) 5733km of driving behind us. Our next leg will take us for a scenic drive around Croatia, Macedonia and Greece before finishing on the island of Cyprus...

However for (good) life reasons there will sadly be no posts here until late June 2019 at the earliest, it's been an amazing trip so far and I look forward to sharing it with you guys later next year - there's still loads of Europe left to travel through. Until then, enjoy this epic sunset over Trieste and I'll see you soon!

Having driven further down the coast to find a job, I arrived in Split at sunset. It was going to be a long night up into the mountains to the service station just north of Žuta Lovka.
Part 19: Diesel from Split(HR) to Žuta Lovka Services(HR)
300km north up into the Croatian Dinarides, earning €30,000.
Image
The Sun sets over Split.
Image
Getting back onto the E65 out of Split. (Where has my shadow gone!?)
Image
Beginning the ascent up into the Dinarides.
Image
Image
Total darkness...
Image
Midnight goes past and the road keeps going.
Image
Another toll and the police pulled somone over.
Image
We arrive at the services, not that you can tell through the darkness.
That's enough night driving for a while, but it has gotten us close enough to easily reach Ljubljana by tommorrow.

Stopping off in Ljubljana was nice but it also meant that I was much further west than intended, so it was time for a long journey east to the Hungarian city of Pécs...
Part 21: Water tank from Ljubljana(SLO) to Pécs(H)
400km east earning €18,000 - the last leg with the flatbed trailer.

The Sun sets across Maribor, I'll have to sleep at the border to avoid any more night driving.
Image
A close up of the truck, about 7,500km driven already.
Image
Image
The Sun continues setting as I arrive at the border...
Image
...Morning arrives in Hungary and our journey continues.

In Pécs I picked up a curtainsider for the next part of the journey into Serbia and beyond.
Image
Part 22: Used packaging from Pécs(H) to Нови Сад (Novi Sad)(SRB)
370km through Croatia and Serbia to the ancient city of Novi Sad on the banks of the Danube. Earning €15,000.
Image
Leaving Pécs.
Image
Back in Croatia.
Image
Traffic on the road to Osijek.
Image
More newly surfaced roads.
Image
Through the countryside.
Image
Image
At the Serbian border. The most difficult border crossing so far, they wanted to check every piece of cardboard in my trailer.
Image
Novi Sad on the sign along with Niš - where we will head next.
Image
Crossing the Danube as we approach Novi Sad on the E75(A1).
Image
Finally at the depot.
Well that was a very long day of border delays, wonderful vistas across the open country and even the first incident of the trip. Someone (A Renault) rear-ended me as I slowed down for a junction (On the slip road), so that was fun. To make matters worse I couldn't find a hotel in Novi Sad so I've parked on the roadside instead. Tommorrow we head south for Niš...
