Basically im going to university in 2010, and im interested in travelling around Europe, mainly eastern europe and the balkans sight seeing/beer tasting for a month..

Ive not done it before obviously so thought it would be cool to see if anyone else is interested in a chatt, it would be cool to get a few people together for it....

Countries im interested in are slovenia, macedonia, romania, hungary, poland, czech repub and generally any country that is in Europe but not british....

Im a pretty much average going on 19-year old lad that just wants to see abit of the world before i beginn university. Im very laid back and easy going, but will definately want to make the most of 30 days of exploring!!

If youre interested reply back on here -snip-


[ Edit: Sorry, no personal details please. ]

Hi there,

What time of year are you planning to go traveling?

I would definitely recommend visiting Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Dubrovnik in deep south of Croatia (the two are also well connected by coach and/or train down to Ploce and further to dobrovnik on coach bus).

Basically, they are best visited in summer but winter ins't too bad either. However, in Sarajevo, prepare for some real winter if you decide to visit. Spring is probably the best time to visit since summer in both cities can be really hot.

Good luck

Cheapest for everything?.... Bulgaria, by a mile. Superb beaches and skiing (miles of River Danube shoreline too), depending on your tastes and there are several budget airlines flying internally within Europe that do direct flights. A challenging (Cyrillic) language, but you'll receive a warm welcome and getting by is easy throughout the whole country.
A lovely couple of days out is the train from Bulgaria into Greece, past Mount Olympus.... Awesome.

I would recommend mine Macedonia, it has really some nice places to go.

For Buglaria I would say, it is not cheap as it used to be, before entering the EU. It;s a nice country however.

For Buglaria and Macedonia I will provide this websites:

Bulgaria travel website
Macedonia travel website

Maybe you will visit both of the countries.
