Vanessa Hi Lauren - I can't make it (wish I could!) - but have travelled through that area (couple of years ago now...'06/'07).
When I was there trains were infrequent and ran only between some major towns - but the bus system was really good (private minivans too) - I don't think you'll get value from a rail pass.
Had trouble finding out how to travel south from Montenegro to Albania as only private buses were running the route (which seem to have random pick-up/drop-off spots) - so I went the other way from Greece - Albania - Montenegro which somehow seemed better organised (i.e I found a way!). Things keep changing there though and if you have time then there's always a way!
Anyway that's my 2 cents worth...
Hope you have a great trip! :) Vanessa

laurenfleur Hey Vanessa, ah Thanks for the advice! Yeah it seems Montenegro to Albania may be a bit tricky, guess just see what happens when I get there! And think you are right about the rail pass, defo go for individual fares! Thanks a lot, Lauren x

How long are in in venice and what date are you in slovenia from?? Mxxx

laurenfleur Hey! Oh right thanks, yeah I remember looking into that and it seemed it may be rather tricky! Yeah hopefully the buses will be a good way around it... I'm maybe spending half the day in the Venice, then Um, to be honest my plan isn't to clear at the moment, should probably start organising,... ha but think probably about 4-6 days in each Country, depending on which one is favourable at the time.. Think prob in Slovenia until the 24th...And you, do you have a bit more time?? Have you a sort of route planned? Lxx

laurenfleur Hello!

I am looking to travel the Balkans, mid July - August for about 3 and half weeks..

Flying to Venice- Slovenia
Slovenia-Croatia
Croatia-Albania

Possibly a bit of Greece and Bosnia if have the time!!!

I just booked a return flight with Ryan air for £60 Venice... total trip if doing it mega budget should be about £500. Going to either purchase a rail-pass or buy individual bus/train fares, which may work out cheaper!?

Basically just finished uni for the summer, and looking for an adventure. If anyone has similar plans, or likes the sound of it. Let me know!

I'm a 22 year old female from south England, so ideally looking for people around my age, who are fun and not afraid to explore!

Thanks for reading...

Lauren
