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

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

Lauren Hey Minnie, there's no PM on here yet. We thought it would be better for people to discuss ideas on this Trip page so new-comers can see the progress in the planning. But we'll definitely keep it in mind for a future addition. For the time being though, on your full profile page you can put in your facebook, twitter, website info that others can see.
