Croatia Cost Analysis

As you may know I was planning to go to Sonus festival in Croatia, which has quite an amazing line-up.

I've already paid £250 on non-refundable Bastardair flights and £130 on the festival ticket which is potentially saleable.

I am trying to decide if I can afford the rest of the cost.  So...

Return train to Stansted £46.20.
Airport to resort - there is one boat at 5pm which costs around £15.  If I miss it then a taxi is £140.  Bus service on the way back is £18.
Accomodation £408
Drinks, Food, 'etc' £500 minimum
Taxis around resort (hotel is 25km away from festival site) £100???

Estimated total - minimum £1,000.00.

I currently have a massive £200.00 saved up with a small bonus due at the end of the month.

I haven't decided for definite but I am thinking I should sack off the idea of going on holiday by myself.

I would rather spend the money either on Hull City's European adventures, or failing that maybe Ibiza closing parties.  Or go to Germany in October for Sven's 50th birthday.

If I don't go away then I could buy some new speakers, or a Microsoft surface or even one vinyl deck.  Or spend it all on crackwhores.

I don't like throwing away £380 but I would be hermerraging at least a grand, only half of which I would have in cash, the rest would be debt.

Decisions decisions.  I think I should cancel.

What would you do?!
