My one day trip to Graz (southern Austria)
January 11, 2019 4:17am CST
Many people from our country like to visit other, in these case, more western countries, where sales are much bigger than in our country. This is an old tradition and, it's quite fine cause, historically, as two countries, Croatia and Austria, are connected and, there is a high rate of Croatian minority in Austria. My mosly shopping trip (3 hours in a mall, outside the city, then till 3, 5 hours in a city center) was all right. I haven't travelled by bus for a long time so, some of the things I didn't like, like too much heating, yet, shopping was pretty successful. I bought some small to medium black, shiny bag, Harry Potter flannel shirt, green leggings, black smaller boots, a cotton t-shirt and, light purple trousers. I must say, I don't what's wrong this season with H&M and New Yorker products (trousers). They sell M but, it's no longer M. Everythings so tight in waist and legs area and, for me, too skinny. Not so good. I'm bringing you a photo from a city center actually, from a park. Do you like short trips and do you go to other countries for shopping?

@Moon24 I like short trips. Even though they make me more tired I like going back to my bed and, they are cheapier. I must say that food in a city center, McDonald's and some place with burgers, Burgerista, I think it was the name, were expensive. I don't why I thought that all McDonald's restaurants in Europe are the same; the tea was 2 euros. I think it's cheapier in my country (it has to be). The burgers in Burgerista were much bigger than ones in McDonald's. So, 2 burgers with french fries and free soda and refilling were almost 35 euros. I mean. Fries were bigger and, the burger had it all but, for me, that's very expensive. But, I was in a hurry so, maybe there was something cheaper around the corner but, I'm not sure. Maybe in a shopping mall I would have gone cheaper, I don't know. As for clothes, they had bigger sales than in my country. 50% and more.

Short trips are nice - sometimes I go to other towns for shopping even if they're farther away. It's something to do and a change of scenery. Other countries just too far away, I've never been out of this country. The nearest would be Canada. Ah, don't feel badly - they are shrinking the sizes here too. I went up a size on no account of my own because of this. Case in point. My jeans from last year fit fine. So I simply re-order them in same size, brand and style. The new ones, so tight I can barely button them.

I don't like shopping trips but, I had to go, at least once. 2-way ticket was 15 dollars, which was ok for a 2-hour drive to almost neighbour country. I hope you could, one day. Hey! Only trousers. Actually, I could wear them as well just, I didn't have a skinny model on my mind
