The Balkans is not a region of the world that I ever really saw myself visiting, so when I went to book myself in to a tour of Eastern Europe with the idea of exploring Prague, Budapest and Austria I was a bit stuck when I found out that it was booked out. Instead I was offered a trip commencing from Croatia, which fit the bill, but not the idea I had in my mind about the trip I would be embarking on.
The more I thought about it, the more I warmed to the idea of visiting countries that are a little more off the beaten track than the cities I originally had in mind. Here are the Balkans region countries I visited and what I thought of them.
