Default Time is running out: Need a plan

Hey guys, sorry to be posting in this forum so much but I need your help again.

Basically I'm loving my time in Eastern Europe (In Krakow now) but I have to be back in Amsterdam by the 29th of June. I'm leaving for Prague tomorrow but I really want to see Viena, Budapest and Split also. Can anyone suggest a plan which will allow me to see all this and still get back to A'Dam on the 29th. Hopefully avoided Are there any places in Eastern Europe where I can fly to Amsterdam?

Perhaps I should skip Split because it is a long way away and I really just wanted to lie on the beach anyway. Perhaps I could soak up some rays at the Flying Pig beach hostel instead?

Sorry for yet another panicked, tired, rambling post but I could use some advice.

I have no advice on Amsterdam because I've never been. ...However my coworker used to be the Manager for the Flying Pig beach hostel. He raves about it all the time. So might be a good place to relax. Though he could be biased!

Ok, heres a caffiene addled itinerary I mashed together, let me know what you guys think. I never thought I'd need an itinerary but desperate times call for desperate measures.

JUNE

10th- 4 Nights in Prague
14th-3 Nights in Viena
16th- Budapest 4 nights
20th-Zagreb 3 Nights
23rd-Probably overnight train to Munich via Viena, 4 Nights Munich
27th- Arrive Amsterdam
29th- Concert

I'm then hoping to do a bit of Belgium before going back to LDN but we'll see if time allows.

Please savagely attack and critique this plan. I don't "do" itineraries so this was a challenge/random mess.

Thanks guys

Yeah, I dunno about the whole itnerary thing either, but it looks like the basis of a possible plan at least, with definite room for changes. For instance you might not want to stay so long in Vienna. I personally didn't feel much for that city, it was just full of grand sort of buildings. Pretty ugly really. It did have awesome art which was what I liked but I don't know what non-arty people would do there. But you must must must check out hundertwasser house... it is on the cityspy map and really cool bizarre architecture. actually there are two buildings, one is residential flats and the other in the art gallery, but i only looked at the outside. Okay I dont know what I am rambling about, feel free to ignore all of this. Maybe I was just in a bad mood in vienna and didnt appreciate it fully, who knows.. gah...must. stop. rambling .... so in conclusion actually 3 nght in vienna sounds reasonable and i am just insane. and also wondering why the smilies are no longer moving.. or is it just my computer?
