Hi!

I'm flying to Bulgaria in March and from there I'm travelling upwards and westards through Romania/ Serbia/ Hungary/ Croatia/ Slovenia/ Austria/ Czech Republic/ Germany....it's a vague plan and if you have any suggestions please pass em on!

If your around at the time or are follwing a similar route I'd love to meet up! Im travelling alone, and as a young lady, it can be a bit of hassle at times.

My travel style is definitly budget, i do a lot of Couch Surfing ( if you havn't heard of it get on it!!) and volunteering, I dont really do museums or national parks, more art galleries and clubs...if that sounds like your thing!

Hope to hear from you soon

I've found this eco farm to work on via the website www.helpx.net. 5 hrs work a day in exchange for food and lodge. Theres quite a few hostels/home stays on there as well!

Where about are you traveling to? Any good ideas about places to visit in eastern europe? Im stuck on my route from Bulgaria to Germany a bit, theres so much to see, I really fancy Croatia, but that means by passing Romania and Czech Republic..i dont know if i fancy Serbia...im so stuck! x

wow, 5 hours work in exchange for food and lodging! dude... thats so legit :D where at is this farm? I personally never worked on a farm... But im sure it would be an interesting experience. And could be alot of fun if you have a fun person to do it with ;)
As for me... I definitely want to go through Eastern Europe. Im still trying to decide how im going to start and end though. More then likely, I will find a random place to start and see where I end up 2 months later :P Though, I have been looking alot into the northeast area... Like; Estonia, Latvia, etc. Im not sure though, so hard to decide! Have you heard good things about Romania?
