12) Budget-Friendly Retreat Locations?

Ashley recently wrote, “Sometimes Google isn’t that helpful when trying to find a location overseas to hold a worker retreat. What budget-friendly and/or missionary-friendly locations do other Brigada readers use? Particularly in Europe, North Africa, and Southeast Asia? And how many people can they accommodate? Thanks for your help!” Let’s throw a couple of ideas out there for Ashley by clicking “Comment” following the web version of this item. Thanks!
