Balkans Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are planning a 6 week backpacking trip around the Balkans and hopefully into Greece and maybe Turkey.
Ideally we would fly into Budapest head down to Zagreb and then along the coast of Croatia. Then up to Sarajevo, and back down to the coast through Mostar. Continue making our way down the coast of Montenegro and Albania (we really don't know what there is to do in Albania but have heard its beautiful). Then fly (if possible/not too expensive) to Athens and spend about a week, week and a half in Greece (no islands for us). Quick jaunt over to Istanbul, then up through Bulgaria, Romania and either dip down to Belgrade or just go directly back to Budapest.
If we could get some ideas or tips on sights and activities in Albania, Bulgaria and Romania that would be great!
Would this be enough time? 6 weeks? We clearly would get a better experience if we spent more time in one area, but don't have any more time. Should we eliminate some destinations?

Any help would be appreciated!!
