Hello, my husband, 13 year old daughter and I are planning an 18-20 day trip in early summer. We are most likely leaving from Seattle and starting our journey in Ljubljana. Initially we were thinking about putting together a driving trip from Slovenia to Croatia, then Bosnia-Herzegovina, Hungary and back to Slovenia. We have a growing list of places to go to in each country.
But -- now we are entertaining the idea of doing a combination of car rental and public transportation (for fun, cost and comfort) and are wondering if our trip may be too ambitious.
Slovenia (in no particular order right now)
Plitvice Lakes National Park
We are also interested in finding festivals, workshops or activities that would be fun for our daughter. We have done a lot of CouchSurfing and have an opportunity to stay with a family outside of Budapest for 3-4 days. I would love to get advice from others on: car/train idea, other thoughts on the itinerary and activities/places of interest for a young person (or opportunities to meet other locals her age).
