Those who have been to the following countries. Please advise. I want to do a 2 month solo backpack photography trip in Europe on a budget. I will mostly be travelling with Eurorail, local rail and buses . Which route will provide me with more beautiful landscapes, historical architectures, people more receptive to allowing me to photograph, more affodable accomodations? I am not into modern buildings and city scapes. Also I will be travelling from late August to Oct.
Route 1: Turkey -> Bulgaria -> Romania -> Hungary -> Austria -> Poland
Route 2: Turkey -> Greece -> Italy -> Switzerland -> Germany -> Sweden
