I and my wife will travel to Croatia for 8 days, between April 13-20th. Hope that it will be like what we expected and read thru' from many sources. Unfortunately, there's no Croatia Embassy in Thailand, but Indonesia. After working on the traveling costs and everything, we decided to choose a trusted travel agent instead of making our own trip. I'll carry my notebook with me since my 1Ds mark III consume a great deal of RAW memory.
I just read Nikon D300 preview, on www.dpreview.com . CA is really superb and amazing. I'm positive that D3 and D300 now exceed that of many unachieves of Canon DSLRs.
For the fall, I'm still not sure whether we can make a trip to Belgium. China's northwestern part is also charming, and so colorful in September and October. We'll see. Again, thanks for your information.
Jump, my wife and sister-in-law are going to Coatia May 2nd, 2008 for two weeks. You plan to go in April?
Go to Croatia Tourist bureau and download some PDF brochures to view before you go. All of these brochures have articles, stories as well as wonderful photographs to view. There are well over two dozen brochures to choose from.
Wow, what a place to visit!! Bring a hard-drive to download your shots daily. You will need it. (Jump, thanks for your tip last week concerning Germany, and to bring a hard drive for downloadind the photos.)
How many weeks will you be there?
The trip was planned by my wife and her sisters last year. I was not included. Girls will be girls it seems. Just as well.
I did check up on the San Disk 8-Gig CF Extreme III card. $94 from Buy.com.
There is a 12-Gig available for $149 also. As well as 4 Gig CF cards.
Thanks for the info by the way. It did help me.
Jump, enjoy your trip to Croatia. I am sure you and your wife will like Croatia. Plan a trip to Brussels at another time. Aug 4th will be the carpet of flowers in the Presidential Square. The next presentation will be in 2010. Every two years. Try to go this year.
