Budapest is super romantic and cheap, Barcelona is nice and warm even in September and the hell of a party, Croatia (love Dubrovnik especially), Essaouira is a little piece of heaven, Provence in the Alpilles…

My vote is Valencia, spain. Its such a beautiful city!! and less touristy than other parts of spain and so therefore less expensive but still so much to do! and the best paella in spain!!!

Seriously cant recommend it enough, i have loved it every time i’ve been 🙂

Croatia is absolutely beautiful! I spent two summers there with my parents right before the war started, when it was still Yugoslavia. I went to Split last year on business and was thrilled to find out that it is still as wonderful as before. I hope i’ll be able to spend a vacation with Darling Husband there soon.

Lovers Island is owned by Vlado Juresko


I don’t know if the company is legit but you can book it here:


You could also do a boat tour around the island

Oh! When we were in Munich I desperately wanted to squeeze in a trip to Bamberg, Germany. It’s suppose to be a quaint little bavarian town heavy on brew with a view of the Alps.

How about Cinque Terre, Italy? We were there in early October and people were still sunbathing. It’s about a 3 hour train ride outside of Rome.

Another vote for Croatia. Split, or Dubrovnik (my preference). I used to go to Dubrovnik every summer as a kid and I was there 2 years ago. Still amazing.

I would say for both Split & Dubrovnik you will want to stay outside of the cities. When I went to Split I stayed in Podstrana (it seems far on the map but is a 15 minute drive). The reason was because there aren’t really nice beach for for swimming in Split proper, it’s all for boats/ships. I’m pretty sure it’s similar in Dubrovnik. You could rent a car but a taxi isn’t that expensive either. 

Also you could go even further south and go to Montenegro!
