In April, we hope to fly to Munich(standby) and then travel to the Balkans. We were look at both the train and the bus. They are both pretty cheap and give us flexibility. The bus is much cheaper. We rode the buses in Ireland last December and loved them - comfy, wifi, and toilets. What more could you want.
Oh, a nice view!
The train appears to take a couple hours more. Both have mysterious (at the moment) connections from the airport. So we need help with that.
The big question is - what is the trip like by either of those transportation options. We would like to see the countryside between those two places and worry that we will just see freeways on the bus. On the other hand, sometimes trains are walled off from the surroundings.
We will likely go back from the Balkans to AMS to return to the NW. So any good connections that way would be helpful too.
Kind regards, all.
