Before the tournament was probably the longest trip we have ever made for our favorite hobby.After some almost 20 hours in various aircraft,a belated to seven hours shuttle from Johannesburg in South Africa to Gaborone,followed by a ride of six hours,including an hour to fill out forms and stamp collecting to the Botswana border came Michael and Andrew at midnight on 27 .at the University of Botswana,where the others were waiting for us.Unfortunately,not in the air-conditioned lobby of a hotel,as promised by the organizers,but on the threshold of a simple dormitory,that should be our often loud and hot home for the next week.After all,we had the first night did not spend at the border as the Slovenes,which the publican had not believed that there was a country called Slovenia ... It did not stop with these curiosities: The food and drinks were often not made,the projectors and the doors to the pool also promised not to,and the delays could be counted in hours. But the very friendly volunteers from all over southern Africa,the beauty of Botswana and South Africa,which explored some of us after the tournament in great safaris,and our frugal Swabian socialized natures helped us to overcome all odds and enjoy the tournament.

It was easy for us also because we had to Stuttgart A a wonderful first day of the tournament,in which we on the topics "This house Believes did national sporting teams Should reflect the diversity of the national population","This house Believes did all countries Should have the right to possess nuclear weapons "and" This house Believes did Governments Should not Provide benefits on the basis of marital status "eight out of nine possible points collected: only to the eventual finalists Sydney A with Tim Mooney and Bronwyn Cowell we had in the third preliminaries like to point.Meanwhile,Jana and Nils brought five very good points.

The next day,with the topic "This house Believes did Should independent central banks set limits on government spending","This house would prioritise asylum seekers who have engaged in armed struggle against oppressive regimes" and "This house would deny teachers' unions the right to strike,"we were annoyed us at first,despite the strong competition between two European Cup finalists (Cambridge B with Jack Watson and Harish Natarajan and King's Inns A with Eoghan Casey and Patrick Rooney) to have only made ​​the fourth place,as we our arguments quite better the debate could integrate,we were happy with second place,and then we were angry again,more likely to have elected to have become bad arguments and Last again.Nils and Jana had meanwhile digested with four points to us so that we could move head to head in the final tournament.

Glad you liked Croatian beer. It is so cheap!
There is suitable accommodation for every budget, From 10$ for rooms and camps, all inclusive cheap socialistic monster hotels to beautiful Hilton right at the Dubrovnik walls, Esplanade in center of Zagreb or Hotel Peristil inside of historic Diocletian palace in Split (double 120 –150$).
Mostar in Bosnia should be also visited, especially during diving competition from the 28 m high bridge. They have done amazing work to restore it after war destruction.
Bled in Slovenia is gorgeous, for a day or two visits. Many private rooms and hotels are located just around the lake.

No problem

Other than travelling with a very young child, you should have no real problems. Slovenia and Croatia are great. You don't say how you plan to travel, but the trains are fine, the roads tend to be narrow with limited highways. Both capital cities are nice small cities (Ljubljana is nicer n my opinion).
Bled (SL) and the rural surrounding area of mountains and lakes are incredible. Dubrovnik (HR) and many of the nearby islands are great, but I encourage you to take the ferry to/from Split versus driving over. You can easily take the train from Zagreb to Split, but the ferry or bus is the option from Split to Dubrovnik
