By now you probably are aware that we as a family have this penchant for taking family vacations !! And in those little two-week holidays we try and work out the details beforehand as much as we can. I do not favour travelling with guided tours or tour-packages and always love the independene that a unfettered tourist enjoys. This year, my plan for my family vacation, was to go to Europe. I selected Slovenia and Croatia, for its landscape and nature. Check out my East Europe Tour Plan for Slovenia and Croatia. Though the plan wasn’t the same when it started, over time we built a different plan and we worked out the cost and the tour dates . This is a budget travel plan for Slovenia and Croatia.
