Hi- I am planning a 12 day trip in the Balkans and came up with this itinerary. I am an experienced solo traveler but need help in deciding how many days to spend in each place.
Day 1 - arrive in Dubrovnik in the afternoon, transatlantic flight
Day 2 - explore Dubrovnik
Day 3 - explore Dubrovnik (too much time in Dubrovnik?)
Day 4 - take a bus to Kotor (2 hrs), explore Kotor + Perast, overnight in Kotor -- too much for a day?
Day 5 - bus from Kotor to Mostar (5 hrs)- I could not determine if the bus leaves in the morning or afternoon, can someone help?
Day 6 - Spend a day in Mostar
Day 7 - Take a 6am bus to Split (4 hrs). Explore Split
Day 8 - Explore Split, take a quick trip to Trogir in the afternoon
Day 10 - Take a guided excursion to Plitvice Lakes
Day 12 - fly back to the States from Zagreb
