Hey, I'm thinking about making a trip to Eastern Europe as my next traveling adventure. Haven't really done too much research yet but I have two ideas in mind. For both trips, I'd like to rent a car so I'll have more freedom and I'll also be traveling solo. I'll be able to take 4 weeks for this trip and have a budget of about $7,000. I don't want to make too many stops because I like to spend several days in each place that I visit and travel at a relaxed pace. One idea would be to see the Balkan countries on the Adriatic. I'd start in Zagreb, work my way down to Dubrovnick then into Montenegro and then end in Sarajevo. My other idea is to travel through the Ukraine and Romania. For some reason, both of these countries appeal to me. I'd love to see the Soviet history in Ukraine and I would really like to see Transylvania in Romania as well as the Black Sea coast. Any comments or suggestions would be great.
