I have no idea where you got those three countries. None of them borders Kosovo or Serbia, and as for endpoint, only Italy makes sense, going to Turkey or Greece doesn't make any sense. Anyway, Hungary is the only country in the Schengen Area that borders Serbia (while Kosovo doesn't border any).

Are there passport checks between Italy and Greece? It do have sense if not.

No, but they can do random checks on the ferry.

In principle, random checks by authorities are not allowed on the intra-Schengen traffic. Instead, random-looking checks based on a risk analysis are allowed. Any action taken by authorities can be considered a risk analysis.

In addition, the Schengen agreement does not prevent the ferry companies from introducing any terms and conditions they wish. Showing the passport or the ID card to the ferry staff may be a prerequisite for boarding.

American? She appears to be Japanese. Anyway, here is a video where she eats Spanish snacks:


I ate a ton of Phoskitos cakes as a kid! Also, Lacasitos exists as a standalone snack, not only in chocolate bar.

Well, actually I didn't thought at all that the main reason was Schengen area. Which still seems to me as a useless wish, but probably don't get their reasons.

My logic was that: albanese fleeing Kosovo (for whatever reason). First choice should be Albania, right? Second choice, if not leaving for ethnical reason, should be Serbia or another country from ex-Yugoslavia (FYROM, Muntenegro, BIH, or whatever). Third choice, if you get to that, should be a near-country where albanese used to flea in the past, such as Italy (if not Greece, but I admit that this was a silly choice). Fourth choice I thought it should be Turkey for cultural and religious reasons.

So Hungary was not on my list at all and Schengen Area wasn't a potential reason from my point of view.

We should do Road_UK a favour: so let's add "and Slavic linguistics" to the end.

His head might explode. But you're closer to Mayrhofen than I am, so if you think it's safe....

Nothing to worry about as long as he keeps up fighting drivers. It is still not enough close to be worth walking.

Neither Kosovo nor Serbia border Greece, so why would you risk crossing two borders?

They're fleeing Kosovo because of poverty, so only Italy makes any sense there (and Hungary as a transit country).

I was at Schwechat this morning - driving. It's only 30 mins over the road from you. So be afraid. Be very afraid

I've decided to watch more of her videos, but it is impossible to see her tasting various treats from different countrys followed by "mmmm", "yammy" "mmm... very tasty" without getting hungry.

In the past we had in the international border crossing thread discussions that belonged to the roadside rest area. Now, we have in the roadside rest area discussions that belong to the (former) international border crossing thread.
