Bosnia, let's do this.

Or, "another post in which Dan says he's going to somewhere that sounds dangerous." (this one really isn't, though! even the ever-cautious US state department is not warning against it!)

I've got a ferry ticket from Ancona, Italy to Split, Croatia. Then I'm headed north to Poland. Google Maps is pretty weak in Bosnia and Herzegovina, so it routes me around through Croatia... but Bosnia is more direct. And interesting; who's been to Bosnia? Croatia sounds cool too, like Dubrovnik and the Plitvice lakes, but y'know those are crowded. But then, maybe Bosnian roads are sketchy?

But maybe maybe a lot of things! Whatever! This sounds like an adventure! Let's go through Bosnia!

The plan now:
Tomorrow: get to Ancona, Italy, and take the ferry to Split, Croatia
May 4: hang out in Split
May 5: Split from Split (har har!) to Mostar, Bosnia
May 6: Mostar-Sarajevo
May 7: Sarajevo
May 8: Sarajevo-Banja Luka
May 9: Banja Luka-Pecs, Hungary
May 10: hang out in Pecs
May 11: Pecs-somewhere else in Hungary
May 12: that somewhere to Kosice, Slovakia
May 13: Kosice
May 14: Kosice to somewhere in Poland
May 15: that somewhere to Lublin, where my friend Anu is living.

How about this! Now this is an adventure. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Yes!

  1. Thanks for clueing us in before you go off the beaten path again....I am not familiar with (any of) these spots, but we'll be looking them up.
    Good luck! Yes!

    1. Right. I think I'll have internet access throughout, but don't worry if I don't post for a few days. (I mean, don't worry in general. But particularly while I'm in transit.)

    1. Ooh, that does look neat! It's a bit out of the way, but I'll keep it in mind. Thanks!
