0 Justin Urbas - 37 tips for backpacking through the Balkans next summer

The Balkans are becoming more and more popular among backpackers in Europe. These ex-soviet countries are no longer unknown and dangerous places to foreigners, but hidden gems full of culture, nature and history. Here I give you 37 tips on how to travel better in Europe’s newest hotspot.

Before the trip
  • Decide if you want to get a Eurail Pass or get around by yourself with local transportation. A Eurail Pass can be useful for a better travel planning, but it will limit your route.
  • Get a travel guide in advance to have access to basic information during your trip

0 Amsterdam: A city straight out of a fairytale

I love staying at the NH Barbizon Palace. It’s in a 17th century building and I love the food they serve. Besides, it’s close to every major tourist destination in the city. There are quite a few Indian restaurants that serve good food. I like Memories of India in particular and highly recommend their lamb biryani.

In case you do not have an office in Amsterdam, the best place to have business meetings would be the hotel foyers.

The best way to get around the city is on a cycle. It also helps you stay fit while travelling.
