My brother is having his stag party in Budapest on the 27th of May, 2015.
Instead of taking a direct flight to budapest, I figured I'd take some time off from work and try to cycle there. The only trouble is, I don't know where to start my journey from. I have 12 days, and could reasonably do around 1,000 kms. I live in Mumbai, India, and I've found that there are cheap (direct) flights to Milan, Italy and Frankfurt, Germany. Since I haven't cycled anywhere in Europe till now, I'm impartial to either.
Route 1: Bologna to Budapest (with train between Milan to Bologna)
Route 2: Munich to Budapest (with a train between Frankfurt to Munich, or maybe directly start from Munich)
Route 3: Bologna to Ljubljana, and then train to Vienna, and on-wards to Budapest.
This is a very impromptu, spontaneous trip which I'll be doing alone. I haven't camped before on my own, so I'll maybe want to do cheap B&Bs, or try to reach out to WS Hosts. Please provide your ideas on a possible route, and the way to go about this.
