We actually didn't do much bicycle touring in Croatia. We took a train from Bratislava, Slovakia to Zagreb and then a bus down to Dubrovnik where we met a friend and traveled with him for 10 days. Camping in Croatia was astronomically expensive. A tent site in Dubrovnik was over $30. Camping on the islands was plentiful, but we mostly stayed in pensions. We ate out more often too, about once a day at a decent restaurant which is why our food costs are higher.

*We classify food, lodging, and miscellaneous costs as daily costs. Food and Lodging are pretty obvious. The only thing to mention is that beer is included in the Food category. Miscellaneous costs include toiletries, internet cafes, stamps and postage, haircuts, laundry, gasoline, phone calls, and any other small costs we need to keep us going on a daily basis.

**We categorize our non-daily costs into the following categories. Gear is the maintenance of our existing gear as well as new purchases. Maps and guidebooks are also included in this category. Fees, Fines, and Tolls includes visas, banking fees, and any other official fees we are required to pay. Entertainment is used for park and museum entry fees, guided tours, movies, books, and any other activities we do which require payment. The Transportation category includes bus, train, taxi, subway, and ferry rides including any fees we have to pay for the bicycles. Health includes trips to the doctor and medications as well as any immunizations boosters we need.
