Choosing a route
February 10, 2013 11:57am CST
I am traveling to Eastern Europe and need to travel through countries in Western Europe to get there. I think I might go to Amsterdam, Prague and Krakow. Then I know a very cheap way to get to Ukraine. I can take a train within Poland then cross the border by foot. Next I can take a bus. I am going to plan a different route home and need to choose which places I will go to. Did you ever decide on a route? Have you found yourself lost when you have traveled somewhere? Do you get on well sightseeing in a big city?

It sounds like you have found a good to get from Poland to Ukraine. I would like to travel from Ukraine to Moldova and continue through Romania and Bulgaria. I visited those countries in 2010, but I was ill while I was in Bulgaria and I only managed to see a small part of the country, so it could be interesting to return to Bulgaria in the future. After Bulgaria I would like to travel back to Denmark via the countries in ex-Yugoslavia, but I think that might make too much time, so I might choose to fly back from Bulgaria or Greece and visit countries in ex-Yugoslavia another time instead.

Hi my friend. I hope that in the future you are able to see more of beautiful Eastern Europe. I am glad to know that you already visited some of Romania and Bulgaria. The countries that used to be Yugoslavia seem very interesting to me. I know that Albania would combine well with them. It would be easy to travel from Zagreb to Sarajevo. Next it would be lovely to see Mostar. Somehow it might be possible to visit Belgrade before visiting some places in Macedonia and Kosovo. Albania could be a side trip with some bus travel.

I am not very good at navigating myself around a strange place my friend, usually when I go abroad I go with someone who has a better sense of direction than I do. The only place I found easy to get around was Rhodes Town, I found my bearing there easily and in a fortnight knew my way around. I hate getting lost in a foreign country, especially if you can't speak the lingo!
