I'll be in Croatia for the first week of September if anyone is interested in meeting up.

Which part(s) of Croatia are you planning to visit? I can try and give you tips for visiting the places you're planning to visit, especially if you're planning to visit Zagreb.

I know it's awkward for me to be interested in a meeting considering I'm a neophyte here, but my classes don't start until the first week of October, and I can easily get a day off the first week of September, as the things currently stand. We don't know each other, but if there's some sort of a mini-meet or something, you can colour me interested.

Not awkward at all. I'll be flying into Zagreb on the 30th, so we could meet up on Saturday or Sunday. I'll be flying back on the morning of the 8th, so the 7th will work as well.

Don't worry, I've yet to murder any of the forum members here I've met in person. Although I did joyride Der Stig's Jaguar. :p

Okay, both weekends work perfectly fine for me, especially since I don't work during the weekends. Let's see if anyone else from these parts is interested in a meet.

Excusez-moi for double-posting, but the first weekend of your visit is approaching. Did you hear from anyone else? The first weekend would work better for me, however, my schedule is pretty flexible and open as the things currently stand, so 7th would work for me as well.

Did you have any plans for the weekend you're staying in Zagreb? Any places you'd like to visit, activities you'd like to do?

Itinerary wise, I'll be in Croatia from the 31st to the 7th. Nothing is set in stone, but I'll be heading out to Gorski Kotar some time after Zagreb then work my way down the coast or head in-land to the Plitvice Lakes. Then back to Zagreb for a day before flying out on the 8th.

If you want to meet up and show me grandness that is Zagreb, that would be great.

Hey, I don't check the forums regularly, I could work something out for the 31st maybe, cant make it on the 7th.
Also, there's a coupe of us who meet up here and there, @IceBone , @nicjasno and Igor (don't know his nick)
Argatoga, would be fun to meet, since we're old members here, and would be nice to meet Tram, too.
Also, if you're rent a car-ing I can give you some good driving roads tips.

I can show you the grandeur of Zagreb, of course, and I'm in favour of meeting the other members as well. The more, the merrier, as long as there's not too many of us, right? :D

I can borrow my dad's Saxo, or even his Yugo (if you want to see that greatness to complete the experience :LOL:) if there's some driving to be done. Mind you, for sightseeing in Zagreb, I definitely don't recommend driving, walking is the way to go, along with public transport. The parking is expensive and extremely difficult to find, the traffic is appalling (especially if you get stuck in a junction during a red light), and public transportation is cheap and quite efficient.

Also, which places in Gorski Kotar are you visiting? My grandpa is from there, and it's on my way to the seaside, so I know the roads fairly well, and can recommend you some if you're renting a car.

I vote for Yugo, even when I'm not attending! :mrgreen:
