Post Trans siberianHello, Im contemplating overlanding back to the Uk from Japan. Ive sort of planned my journey up till moscow where I get confused by all of my options.
I think I will attempt to get a bus from Amsterdam to the Uk (megabus) but dont know where to travel through to get there, so suggestions please.
I will have a limited budget and limited time (ie 2/3 days max in each city excluding travel time) as a sole female traveler (21) with no language skills.
Working backwards i think id like to do Berlin, probably Krakow (to do Auschwitz) but other than that im not fussed.
I realise that i will in no way do any of these countries justice in such a short time.
Any ideas on must dos?

1Assuming that you travel to Moscow, it would be a shame to miss St. Petersburg. I suggest taking an overnight train there, spend 3-4 days and then proceed to one of the Baltic capitals - Tallinn, Riga or Vilnius and from there to Krakow, probably via Warsaw. From Krakow to Prague and then to Berlin and finally to Amsterdam.
Check ecolines and eurolines for buses and search for specific bus information. Try inyourpocket.com guides and ask here on the TT.
Don't worry about lack of language skills, with English you will almost always find someone to help you.
If you are worried about budget, then check out couchsurfing options as well as hostels.
