It's cheaper (you can actually afford this trip)
More varieties of food (pasta and tapas get REALLY old after a week)
More "off the beaten path" options
Modern, yet old all at the same time
English speakers are easy to find even in the smallest villages (most of the time)
Take Croatia for example... Croatia has mountains, islands, miles and miles and miles of coastline, crystal clear water, warm weather, cold weather, hiking, biking, camping, cities, seafood, people who know how to cook seafood, affordable seafood, wildlife, national parks, quaint villages, modern everything, old-time feel, a LOT of history. We recently spent our Spring Break holiday camping in Croatia. Honestly, I think Croatia is my favorite European country to visit. It was my second trip there and Croatia did not disappoint. I'm ready to go back this summer! Take a look at these pics to see why...
