ok...leete me know what you all think of t his idea...were starting in Romania for some missions work, so after that our official backpack journey begins in bucharest on the 17th of may. From there we were planning on going to Istanbul, then thessoliniki Greece, possible athens, and up to croatia. One main concern of mine is the travel between greece and croatia. It seems there are some shady countries (albania, bosnia, mcedonia) in beteween routes there and I have no idea what travel is like on this route. Anyone with any aexperience here? Also there is no railroad that goes into Dubrovnik, coratia so I assume the bus is the next best option? Again any suggestions are appreciated on this part as I have absolutely no experience with bus travel over there at all. After croatia, we plan on a ferrie over to Italy, then 4 days around till we fly out of rome on the 31st. I have posted in other sections b ut gotten little response so sorry if im getting annoying. I could really use the help! Thanks guys

I haven't actually been to Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia, but I am planning on going to at least the first two next year. I had the same concerns as you so I've been doing mucho research. As for Macedonia, from what I've read it is completely safe. Albania seems ok too, just stay out of random fields in the country side (many left over minefields). Personnally, I plan on staying on the train through Bosnia. I've read though that the chance of mishap in any of these countries is remote. Check out http://www.lonelyplanet.com/ for some real good info. Go to worldguide then click on map of the country you want to know about and hit info. Good Luck!
