Zdravo! (A Croatian hello)

March 12th, 2006 at 01:29 pm

Iím going to Croatia in September.

I have already stated that if given the opportunity to travel, I wonít pass it up. A friend, who is super savvy about online deals, found us a $412 round trip flight to Europe. Iíll be going for two weeks.

Spending on travel has never been something Iíve regretted. I get so much out of traveling; I know itís a worthwhile expenditure. I also travel pretty cheap-Iím not into hostels, but I am into renting apartments. The more people travel together, the cheaper it can be. Also, research counts, and the Net makes searching open to everyone. Last year I stayed in a very nice Belgian B&B for $17 U.S. a night, as 4 of use shared one ďsuiteĒ-one adult bed, and in a separate room two ďkidĒ beds. The bathtub was superb-super long and deep-I am an aficionado. The B&B was in an old beautiful Belgian home, very quaint. The breakfasts were excellent.

I will still plan on living on minimum wage in all other aspects other than the Croatia trip. I will keep a separate log of every travel expense, down to the travel books Iíll buy (used), to see how much a two week Europe trip can cost if down on a budget.

Croatia is supposed to have amazing beaches. We may also visit Serbia. It will be incredible!

    I'm jealous! Can I travel vicariously with you?? You're right, it is the one expense to never pass up, in my opinion.

    Croatia and serbia have some wonderful places! the beaches are incredible and in Sept you will have excellent weather. Don't be surprised if it rains a little every afternoon but it helps to cool things off and is just a beautiful country. Where will you be staying?
