World Cycle 2014: Greece

In September 2014 I will be leaving my job of 16 years at Philips to follow my dream. The last 21 years I have lived in Europe – in the Netherlands and Germany, and now it is time to go home. Home to Australia. In Europe I have learnt to love cycling. What better way to finish the European chapter of my life and enter the next than by cycling home?

After leaving the Netherlands, I will be cycling through Germany, then crossing the alps in Switzerland and Italy. I will pass Venezia and Trieste before entering Croatia (via Slovenia), and cycling down the Croatian coast, through MontenegroAlbania, and Macedonia (F.Y.R.o.M) before entering Greece. Here is my planned route through Greece.

This will be my first time cycling in Greece. I have been unable to find documentation on cycling routes (descriptions or gpx files), and would love any tips or advice, as I’m sure my route can be improved a lot.

I am also looking at an alternative (longer) route through Albania, Macedonia and Greece (if I have extra time). Check it out here.
