hey all, i don't post on here too often but i thought i'd give it a whirl. i'm heading to italy (and some neighbouring countries) to travel around for about 2 months. i quit my job, gave up my apartment and going eat, pray, love style for a little while. i was wondering if anyone has any tips of places i need to see or stay. i'm going it alone (again) and on the cheap.

i've been to italy before but never backpacked through, i am planning on hitting palermo for italian pride fests at the end of june. and probably heading over to croatia and albania to sample some of their beaches and local cuisine ;)

i'm pretty open, esp since my friend who had offered to let me crash had to withdraw her invite due to family issues icon_sad.gif
