I am a 29 year old female planning on travelling eastern europe during july and august. I am still in the early stages of planning so do not have a definate itinery yet.

I will be travelling with a friend for the first three weeks hoping to visit romania, hungary, slovakia, czech, poland and then onto ukraine where i will spend two weeks volunteering. I will be leaving southern ukraine around August 10th and from there will be alone and will go to bulgaria (is this safe for a lone female?). Does anyone know about trains/buses from Odessa in Ukraine to Bulgaria?

I am an easy going person with a good sense of humour who loves meeting new people. If you are planning anything similar please get in touch.

Yes, you will be fine in Bulgieland.. I'm actually going backwards. I know there is a ferry from Odessa that stops in Varna, but it's a slow ride ... really slow (2days?). I personally .. start in Istanbul, make my way up the black sea coast into Bulgieland, and hop a bus to Bucharest and eventually to Transylvania. I am volunteering there for two weeks, then hitting Budapest and flying to Kiev.

small world, right
