I'm trying to plan my itinerary for a Croatia+Bosnia trip and I surely could use a bit of help. I arrive to Zagreb from Budapest roughly on the 2nd or 3rd of november and have a plane that leaves Sarajevo on the 20th. It's the last stretch of a three months solo trip and I'm actually very excited!
I'm a bit confused on what I should do from there on. I'm guessing that by november the weather won't be very summery anymore, so I don't need any days to just relax at the beach. I want to see as much as possible, but in a reasonable way, without having to rush in. I don't mind skipping a few places if it means really getting to enjoy the ones that are absolutely worthwhile.
I've been thinking that I could go something like this:
Day 1: Zagreb (arrive during the morning and spend the day there). 1 night in Zagreb
Day 2: Leave early morning to Zadar (I've read that some buses pass through the Plitvice Lakes, is this so?). Spend the night in Zadar.
Day 3: Leave early morning to Split.
Day 4: Split
Day 5: Take a ferry to Hvar and spend the night in Hvar.
Day 6: Hvar and back to Split in the afternoon.
Day 7: Bus to Dubrovnik.
Day 8: Dubrovnik
Day 9: Dubrovnik
Day 10: Bus to Mostar (Bosnia). Sleep in Mostar.
Day 11: Bus to Sarajevo.
This gives me between 6 and 7 days in Sarajevo, which I don't mind shortening to stop in other great places or spend more time in places that I'm just rushing to.
Does this make sense? Should I skip someplace? Am I missing something? Is this doable?
Really, ANY ideas or impressions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
