Kotor, Montenegro

We arrived in Kotor, Montenegro only to realise that our accommodation was hidden somewhere in the labyrinth of “Stari Grad” or the old town. After a brief attempt to make sense of the numbering system we gave in and asked at the nearest information centre. Within minutes a guy arrived to lead us there, with […]

Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina

After arriving at the bus station about 15 minutes out of the city, we shared a taxi with two Italian girls to our accommodation for the next five days. I will be honest and say that most people’s first impression driving into Sarajevo might not be that positive. It’s only once you explore the “old town” […]

Jajce, Bosnia & Herzegovina

After always planning ahead for at least a couple of weeks, we were leaving Plitvice Lakes without a single day’s accommodation booked in advance. We could go anywhere, and stay there for as long as we liked! It is an exciting situation to be in, and we soon found ourselves on a bus crossing the […]

Long story short, if you intend on visiting Krka, […]

The hostel had its own resident DJ, and we were all greeted by ‘Huni’ the beer bong upon arrival! The resident […]

Pamukkale, Turkey

We loved Antalya, and perhaps could have stayed at least a few days longer but we had a bus to catch to Pamukkale! There were a few options to get into this rather isolated city, and we chose to catch a ‘Metro Bus’. Well let me tell you that was one of the best choices […]

Rome, Italy

Against all odds, i somehow managed to make my flight. I told myself to remember that sometimes things do go your way, as at one stage i had actually given up trying to make this flight! With temperatures at about 40 degrees, the whole train system shut down right as i was standing at the platform. […]

Paris, France

After a stop over at the Dominican Republic as well as Frankfurt, I arrived at 8:15am exhausted! I have four nights here, and am staying with my cousin Michelle! I can’t even remember the last time that i saw her, and now she is married with a one year old son called Luke!
