the Balkans and Caucasus' areas are ripe for exploration....Balkans have settled down but Caucasus is rough neighborhood..was watching Globe Trekker about Georgia. The host was getting into some the most remote and culturally primitive areas of Europe to do some mountaineering.It showed them crossing or driving along a bunch of sweet looking creeks.They get sick amounts of snow and the mountains are bigger than the Rockies.The next winter Olympics in Sochi may help open up the area more.Nice Mediterranean climate with beaches on the Black Sea right next to high mountains.The Russians definitely have massive sacks.
Don't know if you really want Americans singing about whitewater
...the video 'Creekin USA' tried that and it was pretty corny.Off the too of my head one lyric went :
I seek the falling waters,
to me it 's all that matters,
I 'm going creekin ',
Creekin ' Uuu -Ess -Aaaay
with generic bar chord rock ...I kinda like that Russian metal...good early kayak lorn though...
