I really enjoyed myself on a previous trip to Europe - but it mainly covered the bigger, more well known cities so I was looking for something a bit different. This trip + Dubrovnik to Venice was exactly what I was looking for. Other than the turbulent recent history you don't hear about the Balkans much - so there was so many new and unexpected things to see. Sarajevo was a personal highlight for me, the old town there is gorgeous and the tale of the cities siege and recovery from it is powerful stuff.

Love this trip. I went to Italy after this trip and what a difference. Eastern Europe is more laid back, less tourists and less touristy. Everyone should go before it is discovered by the rest of the world.
