On our way to Korčula we first came past Ston with its fascinating wall before we got to the ferry and after a short ride had reached the island. The Croatian islands with their small venetian towns decorated with big palm trees were a delight to explore.

Coming from Skopje, we entered Kosovo and drove over the Prevela pass until we reached Prizren. It was the day before the Day of Independence of Kosovo and everywhere flags were put up and people were enjoying the good weather in the mountains and in the town of Prizren.
We had planned to visit two sites, one in Tirana another close to Lake Ohrid, but both didn't work out, nevertheless we had an interesting day which ended with a fabulous dinner at a very original restaurant.

We were now on our way back from the south coast of Turkey in direction to Çanakkale crossing the country to get an impression not only of the coast but also of the interior. Our first stop was at a caravanserai but the highlight was the ancient town of Sagalassos high in the mountains!

We had reached Alanya, which will be our most eastern town of Turkey on this journey. Tomorrow we will be on our way back to Europe, but first we wanted to visit this lovely town which lies around a hill which stands out from the coast.
