Journey to Eastern Europe ~ April 2012

I have to admit, the countries of Eastern Europe were never high on my list of "must see" places - but when the opportunity presented itself to travel there, it proved to be far more compelling and worthwhile than I had imagined.
We visited Bulgaria and Romania by coach and saw some amazing places, while a river cruise brought us into contact with Serbia, Croatia and Hungary. We're glad we got the chance to see those parts of the world - to meet some of their people, sample their foods and admire their architecture and beautiful countryside while learning something of their incredible history.
Would I go again..? Yes, I would - there is clearly more there than we could ever find in just two weeks.
