Haha. I think this plan is much better now. Looking forward to it!
Below is the drive route in Europe.
First stop: Nuremberg, Germany
2nd stop: Prague
3rd stop: Cesky Klumov, Czech Republic
4th stop: Vienna
5th stop: Budapest, Hungary
6th stop: Zagreb, Croatia
and 7th and the last stop of the road trip will be Rovinj, Croatia:
And from Rovinj, we will fly from the nearby Pula airport to the southern crown jewel of Croatia, Dubrovnik, where we will spend 2 days enjoying the Adriatic.
And then we will fly from Dubrovnik to Istanbul, Turkey, and spend a day and a half there to visit the magnificent Hagia Sofia and famous Grand Bazaar:
From Istanbul, we will make an overnight roundtrip to Cappadocia region, where early Christians had dug out literally underground churches in the fairy rock formations to escape persecutions in the past. We may also have a chance to take a hot air balloon ride in the dawn. It's one of the most popular activities there.
Back to Istanbul, we will conclude our 17-day Europe trip and continue to our next destinations.
