Five Week Itenerary

I am coming to Prague as part of a five week ititerary and wanted a little advice.

I have five weeks to backpack around Europe. Two weeks (the second and third week of the five) I will spend traveling from either Prague to Vienna to Budapest) or the other way around. These two weeks are set, as I am meeting friends for this portion. I am trying to figure out where to go week number one, four, and five that would allow for me to get a really good feel for the general area but not get boring since I'll be in the same "general" area for five weeks.

Here are some thoughts that I am thinking on geographic borders, but feel free to disagree!

* Russia is too far West.

* France and UK are too far East, plus would make a two nice separate trips some day.

* Norway, Sweden, and Finland are too far North, and would make a nice separate trip some day. Perhaps Denmark should be included in this list, unless others strongly disagree.

* Turkey might be too far South, unless people strongly disagree.

* Italy could be a nice trip unto itself some day, or could incorporate it now.

If the area isn't safe, I shouldn't be going there...

So based on that what other cities would you add to the itinerary, and in what order?

Well, I just did some additional research, and wanted to make this post a bit more specific. Let's focus on a five week trip around Central Europe, to include at a maximum these countries (though you might suggest only a subset), Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, and Germany. There is a slight chance that I will go to Berlin on a trip next year, so keep that in mind, if it makes a difference in your suggestion!

in ranking them in terms of nature/ backpacking generally Slovenia, Austria, Slovakia (high Tatras) would be in the top half

I'd suggest do some general digging/googling regarding hiking/back packing in Central Europe..seems to be plenty of info to get you started. You can check Lonely P. as well

as well search hiking/backpacking for each individual destinations for ex.

Sorry, I should have said I'll be traveling by car around ... not true backpacking!
