I'm looking at organising a two week trip somewhere in Europe and was just looking for ideas/recommendations as to places/countries to visit in Sept/Oct time. I'm particularly keen to look at Eastern Europe including countries such as Croatia, Bosnia etc. I'm a keen cyclist and enjoy walking so any recommendations for cycle or walking routes in this area would be much appreciated.
Also, I've glanced at the Interrail website a while ago but I would imagine this is the still the most economic way of getting around?
If I have any info, I'll let you know too I'm actually planning on a trip directly after WYD for two weeks during end of Aug and early Sep. When I search online, the Eurail is the most economic method so far. I love historical buildings and scenic views. Any idea?
Maybe we can exchange ideas...
If you would like to cycle some days, you could travel a part of the Danube cycle route (Donauradweg/ part of Eurovelo 6) The route covers Germany, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria.
If you plan to go to Croatia/Bosnia, you might also go to Serbia/Hungary to do a bit of cycling over there.
In June I will cycle from Budapest to Belgrade, so afterwards I could give you some info on parts of the route, if you're interested.
And indeed, interrailing is one of the better methods to get around in Europe. Otherwise Eurolines (bus) might be an option, but generally trains are faster/more economic.
If you go by interrail, it might be good to figure out whether you need a global pass, one country pass, or Balkan pass etc. Anyway, that mainly depends on how often you want to travel etc.
