Fact: Because Austria is so small interesting places abroad can be reached easily and quickly by car. This is maybe one of the reasons why it seems to be more attractive to go to nearby Italy or Croatia on holidays than explore some unknown place at home. Having grown up in the east of the country everything is ‘relatively’ close (yes, for us Austrians driving more than 1 hours in one direction is FAR away – this needs to be stressed here, because if you grew up in the US, Mexico, Brazil or any other massive country your perception of distances is COMPLETELY different).
So, here we are…first brief get-away to Croatia. If you like to soak up the sun, enjoy clear water and some quiet days…your destination.
