Travel planning takes up a vast part of your life as you sit at the computer.
The great thing is that you have the world at your fingertips and receive answers(usually) within 24 hours.

We have the trip planned up to Croatia. We will arrive in Split by car ferry,overnight accommodations, at 6:00 a.m. Bright eyed and bushy tailed, (yea,right), and ready to take on the country!

The plan hasn't been cemented, we might just go with the flow and see where the breezes take us. We know that we definately want to spend several days in Dubrovinic, as it is a living fairy tale, as Rick Steves puts it!

We have a friend who's Aunt and Uncle summer on an island off of Split, and I am waiting to hear if we hear from them. They happen to live in the same town as we do and it would be so fantastic to see the island with them, as their family originated from this island.

The problem is that the ferrys do not run as you might wish them to as it is going off season, and we don't know the typical run of the boats.
Trying to plan when we travel to another place here is quite "iffy", so maybe we will just wait and see when we arrive.

Up the coast to Pula and Rovinj for another beautiful town on the Adriatic and Pula for some Roman Ruins,(they have a Roman Amphitheater there), Rovinj for a taste of extreme romance, and we know that we all need this, a Venietian-style coastal town, then on to Trieste and Venice for a few more romantic days and nights before heading home.

I was thinking as I was putting printed material that I had found on various Italian accommodations etc., that I should make available these findings for people to cut the time of searching down for them, the cost of $3.00 per page printed and then they could investigate the places of interest and book on their own.

Last year I helped 3 people plan their Italian vacations.

The boyfriend of a friend of mine has a business on the side helping arrange South African vacations. He started this venture after researching and planning his own excursions a few years ago and now routinely travels there to scout out new destinations for safaris and off-the-beaten path accomadations.

I'm sure others would love to benefit from your research and experience, as well.
