Albania to Turkey any suggestion?

We are about to leave Montenegro and heading to Istanbul. Our plans had to change recently and now we are re-planning our way to China. We are trying to get to Instanbul where we will have to take a train or coach to Georgia. Any tip on the best way to get there? We are going to be in Albania tomorrow and then we need to decide which way to go. Any advice on Macedonia? Bulgaria?
Thanks B&J

Hi,

Hi,

Although I didn't cycle exactly the way you plan, but I spent many days cycling the Balkans. Maybe you can use one of my tracks: http://www.gpsies.com/mapUser.do?username=mia-Tours
Don't miss lake Ohrid and lake Prespa.
Maybe you want follow the Iron curtain trail for a while, Eurovelo 13 http://www.ironcurtaintrail.eu/en/

If you have further questions send me message.
Greetings
Michaela

best way from edirne to

best way from edirne to istanbul is edirne-kirikkale-luleburgaz-saray-catalca-istanbul instead the main road which is crowded and noisy. you should also know in main cities there are, called "teachers houses" (ogretmenevi) where you can stay for a better price.
