I can answer questions about traveling and accomodations in Slovenian, Croatian and English. I speak fluently in all languages, including basic German too. I have tons of experiences in these regions, including how to travel by plane and train and bus around Europe. From airlines to apartments, from tourist attractions to hidden local sites, I would be more than happy to help you. I was a single woman traveling alone and know what not to do and what to do!!! So if you need information I am happy to guide you with a little information!
You have to be careful as a tourist and ALWAYS COUNT YOUR CHANGE!!!

I am going to be in Dubrovnik and Split for three days in August...We wondering if you know any good CHEAP places to stay...we dont mind booking ahead as we are already bound by flights.
Also do you know how much it may cost to travel Dubrovnik-split by bus?
Are you flying into Dubrovnik?
Yes...were flyin into Dubrovnik and back out of Split.
In Split you can stay at Hotel Park. Center of Split, close to Bacvic!
It is a big hotel 4 star.
Hotel Split is outside the center of Split a little, but cheaper.
You can also take the ship from Dubrovnik to Split.
Bus is the best way to travel. The local people travel on ship and bus.
I have a question about Slovenia, I would like to stay somewhere in the Soca Valley (or near it) but I'm on a budget and would like to stay in hostels. I doubt there are any hostels in this part of the country but are there any alternatives to the fairly expensive hotels in Kobarid and Bovec? Also how easy is it to travel in this region, I'd just like to see a bit of scenery, but I don't have a car so I'd have to rely on public transport. Any help would be appreciated!

Train in Slovenia is slow but good. http://www.slo-zeleznice.si/
If you buy tickets at the local train stations, be sure you know the price first! Also, if you get tickets in Ljubljana they might have a discount that day. Ask.
I am not familiar with hostels. Though I was looking around the border by Klagenfurt and did find some websites, didn't save them...so look. They are in English...Most people speak English a little in Slovenia.
Xena... I need to get from Treviso to Pula; would you recommend a train from Treviso to Trieste and a bus from Trieste to Pula? Is there reallyy only one bus a day (at 9:00am!) from Trieste to Pula? I've looked at the train schedules from T-P, and due to a huge layover, it's an 11 hour train ride (holy cow! To travel 126K!)
Thanks for your help.... griff
Sorry for the delay. Been really busy!! Check the summer schedule.
http://www.visit-croatia.co.uk/gettingthere is great for checking out how to get around. Where are you staying, when are you coming?
Where are you going?

No problem with the delay in replying. I think I will take the bus from Trieste to Pula, as it's only 3.5 hours, and there's four per day! So we'll train it from Treviso to Trieste, then go from there. The bus station in Trieste is right beside the train station, which is a bonus with our heavy knapsacks.
Thanks for the help!
