Hey guys
So I'm struggling to find much about either of these routes I want to do on my trip this year.
Am wanting to go from Budapest to Brasov, but would like to maybe see Szeged and Sibiu along the way - is there a bus/train between Szeged and Sibiu, or do I have to change somewhere?
Also what is the best way to get from Gjirokaster to Ohrid? It generally doesn't seem that easy to get into Macedonia, which is pretty frustrating. Either that or I've missed something!
Any help is much appreciated :)

When I traveled to Romania, I used both the train and the rent a car service. I traveled by train from Bucharest to Mamaya and it was an interesting experience, mainly because I met lots of new people. In what regards the rented the car, I booked it with this company - -snip- - and I did it because I wanted to go to the Transfagarasan. Useless to say that it was far more comfortable with the car than with the train, but overall they were both pleasurable experiences.
