Will be spending a week in Croatia in September. I've been to Spain and it's great, but Croatia seems to be on a wave right now. Can't go wrong with either destination.

Greece is great also as an alternative. Pick some islands and go.

Fyi: if you’re planning to rent a car in Croatia, make sure you know manual. When I went there weren’t any automatic cars at the rental agency. Fun places in Croatia: Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar. definitely take advantage of their truffles! Best in the world imo

Visit the islands via ferry or seaplane from Split if you go to Croatia. Beautiful country

@OP I enjoyed Zagreb. Very nice city. I’d start there as it doesn’t quite compare to the islands in my opinion but it gives you a good flavor of the country’s culture

SR1: which rental company did you use?

Honestly can’t remember, maybe Europcar? I picked it up in Dubrovnik.
It wasn’t a big deal Bc I drive standard for my personal car. Just wanted to make sure that OP recognized that it could be a possibility

I went to Greece in September 2016, had a blast.

Is Zagreb worth a visit?

Thinking about bachelorette "trips" -
I'm under the impression that it's a pain when people pick "exotic" destinations because everyone has to spend on flights, hotels, etc. I'm planning on a "local" weekend away (1-2 hour drive) so no one has to take off work or buy a flight. Or do people prefer to take a trip across the country? I've never been in a bridal party before, so don't have experience on the other side

Company wants me to travel to Austria for training/meetings/etc. I'm a US permanent resident. I applied for a Schengen business visa thru VFS in Miami. It's been pending with the Austrian consulate in DC for almost 2 months now because they said they need confirmation from the AMS in Austria if I need a work permit/work visa to be there. Both myself & the CEO of my company have tried contacting the AMS there multiple times with no response. Sort of stuck in limbo. Any advice?
