lol @ Bulgaristan

Why don't they sign Istanbul in Greece on the A2? I hate that phobia about signing something outside your own country.

we rested a lot of time in this border(in the middle of a forest and a mountain). They didn't understand why we entered in their country and left it in that day. "problem computer, problem computer"...I ask them to check our car and to let us to go... Finally, we complete some papers and left Turkey after 2 hours...


other touristic info: in RO , in EN

There's a gas station at Malko Târnovo(Bulgaria), just after the boarder crossing. Then it depends if you take road I-9 (I suppose you did this) the next gas station is in Burgas, otherwise you have a gas station in Carevo (road I-99) which is a bit closer.

The forest you mentioned is the Strandža Natural Park.

It is not necessary to write it IMO. Turkey is enough (same with the case of Skopje-why not Bitola?, FYROM is better). There is no reason to write the name of a city which is located 200-300 km away and out of the national territory.

Turkey can either be the direction of Edirne, or Istanbul, or Izmir, if you're not completely known to the area. Imagine we would only sign "Germany" in the Netherlands, you would have no idea where the road is leading you.

That's not a fair comparison. The Greek-Turkish land borders and highway network are way different than the German-Dutch one. In the latter case it would be misleading and troublesome but in the former is not.

Yes. Some drivers told us at the border about that small gas station. We found it open (it was late). I remember I saw there many plastic bottles with gas for sale . Last time when we taken gas was in Litochoro/Katerini...

I forgot the maps of the day:





the road E 87 between Kirklareli and bulgarian border was under construction ( upgrade to 4 lanes)
