Budapest

We ended up taking a bus from Zagreb to Budapest. It was a really simple and was only about 15 Euros each. Upon arrival, we decided to get a 7 day public transportation card. This card is about 14 Euros each and is completely worth it. The city of Budapest is massive, and to reallyContinue reading “Budapest”

Dubrovnik

Like the bus from Sarajevo to Kotor, the bus ride from Kotor to Dubrovnik was incredible. You continue to go through the mountains and along these lakes. As you get further along the ride, it’s actually along the ocean. Upon arriving in the city, ‘castle’ immediately comes to mind. That and of course Game ofContinue reading “Dubrovnik”

Zagreb

Following Dubrovnik, we needed to get to Zagreb so we can take a flight out to Budapest. We ended up staying just a night in Zagreb, because I really wanted to get to Budapest for my birthday! What we had read about Zagreb, was aside for the museums and architecture, there wasn’t a whole lotContinue reading “Zagreb”

Kotor

The Bus ride from Bosnia to Montenegro was one of our Highlights of the trip. Once you get out of the fog of the Sarajevo mountains, you continue the journey at a high altitude through different terrain. There’s mountains and lakes on all sides and we followed a winding road for a few hours. ItContinue reading “Kotor”

Sarajevo

We took another bus from Belgrade to Sarajevo. This like the others was fairly affordable, I believe under $20 a person. A lot of these buses have Wifi on them as well, which makes everything more convenient. I had no idea what to expect with Sarajevo. I reached out to a few old friends thatContinue reading “Sarajevo”

Belgrade

We took the Bus from Sofia to Belgrade. It was a comfy, simple FlixBus that was extremely cheap. The tickets on average were approximately $5-$15. In my opinion, it was the best and easiest way to get between countries. From the moment we arrived in Belgrade, it had a different vibe from anywhere we hadContinue reading “Belgrade”

Sofia, Bulgaria

Following our stay in Cappadocia, we took a flight back to Istanbul and began our night train to Bulgaria! It wasn’t a difficult process to buy the tickets and everyone was pretty helpful. You end up taking a train from the city center to get to the primary train station. The train station is aContinue reading “Sofia, Bulgaria”

Cappadocia, Turkey

We took a quick flight from Istanbul to Cappadocia. Flights were really the best option due to timing and costs. Rainier was dying to go here so we ended up moving some things around to make this a priority. So this city is famous for the hot air balloons that take off everyday. Unfortunately, becauseContinue reading “Cappadocia, Turkey”

Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul was one of my favorite cities from this trip. It was so big that I wish we would have stayed longer. Although the weather wasn’t great, the people and experiences made up for it. Fun Fact: Istanbul is the only city in the world to border 2 continents. Part of the city is apartContinue reading “Istanbul, Turkey”

Beirut, Lebanon

Interestingly enough, a month before we arrived protesting (Link) took place a month before we arrived. We almost decided not to go because of it, but remained committed to the experience. We actually did see where the riot had taken place, however were able to see ample graffiti and military presence. Most importantly, at noContinue reading “Beirut, Lebanon”
