Some time ago I posted on my “interrail” through balkans I had on 2009. It was a 23 days trip, and I want to post it again in english in this new blog. This time with pictures and some details.
We took a flight (Vueling) from Madrid to Venezia. Then we took a train from Venezia to Mestre. From Mestre to Triestre by train again. Then we got in Slovenia by coach ending in Piran, where our interrail began!
Slovenia: Piran, Ljubljana, Bled, Postyojna
Croazia: Zagreb, Plitvice, Split, Dubrovnik
Bosnia Herzegovina: Mostar, Sarajevo
Grecia: Thessaloniki, Kalampaka, Atene.
Spagna: Barcellona (Fly back from Atene to Madrid)
Remember it is not worth to buy an Interrail ticket for this kind of trip. For mediterranean countries (Slovenia, Croatia) is better to move by coaches. Then when you travel through the other countries (Bulgaria, Bosnia y Herzegovina, Grecia, Montenegro, República de Macedonia, Rumania, Serbia, and Turquía) you can buy a Balkan Flexipass, cheaper than an Interrail pass. Hostels and bed&breakfast are really chip, so if you are like us and you want a low cost travel, this could be one of your best choices!

This trip has been one of the most exciting trips of my life. People is beutiful, lovely and strong. It is a “complete” travel. You see history, monuments, people, cities, beaches, nature… I am sure i’ll be back.
