Ljubljana and Zagreb: My Travel Budget

I am writing this post from the comfort of my massive hotel bed. My flight to Ljubljana leaves early in the morning and instead of travelling to the airport in the middle of the night, I chose to book an overnight accommodation two minutes away from the main terminal building. Having redeemed some of the points I have been collecting, I only had to pay £37 for my accommodation in cash. The hotel is great and although I could have saved money by getting to the airport in the middle of the night, I don’t regret my decision for a second.

I haven’t been around the blogosphere much these last couple of days. I have been running around London in search of my next flat. This is not an easy task to accomplish might I add. Our budget is pretty low and our requirements are really high, no wonder we have not been able to secure a place yet 😉 We will have more viewings next week when I get back from my travels.

I am very excited about my trip tomorrow! I will get to spend two full days in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have not decided yet but I might take a bus to Lake Bled on Saturday as I’ve heard great things about it. I am then taking a train from Ljubljana to Zagreb and spending another two days exploring Zagreb, Croatia.

This is what my budget for this trip looks like –

Ljubljana and Zagreb







I have not bought my train ticket yet but I am planning to do it on my arrival to Ljubljana. My spending money is £25 per day (this is around 30 Euros). I don’t expect Ljubljana and Zagreb to be very expensive; therefore, I think £100 for four full days should be sufficient. I am planning on using local transport and eating in affordable places. I have another £300 with me should I need to have access to more money, but I really think £25 per day should be enough for me.

I am staying in hostels both in Ljubljana and Zagreb. I have never stayed in a hostel before. I think I am more excited about it than scared. I have carefully selected best hostels in both cities to give me some peace of mind, and I really hope other people staying with me will be nice.

I am also planning on taking lots of photos which I will share on my blog upon my return.

How has your week been so far? Is anyone else travelling somewhere in the near future?

    I am taking my baby son on a cruise to the Caribbean in a few weeks. My parents recently booked the cruise and since I’m in desperate need of a break from work, I decided to go with them; unfortunately, my husband will be left behind ):
