Hiking Vidova Gora from Bol. Brač Island, Croatia

About a year ago I researched and listed Croatia’s 10 Best Hikes. Since then I’ve been working my way through that list. One of the hikes at the top of my list was Vidova Gora on the island of Brač. Why? 1. It is the highest peak in the Adriatic Islands 2. It offers the […]

Hiking Mt. Dinara, Croatia’s highest Peak

Mount Dinara is part of the Dinaric Alps (also called the Dinarides), one of the most rugged and extensively mountainous area of Europe that extends over Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Albania. The Dineric Alps are in fact named after Mount Dinara, a huge massif located on the border of Croatia and […]

Memories of Childhood Trips

I was reorganizing our storage space in Split this weekend when I came across a whole bunch of old photo albums.

I’m drawn to bloggers who travel […]

The absolute worst thing about being a full time traveller (it’s got nothing to do with travel)

Bad words, I’ve warned you. This is one of those “angry posts” (ooohh, those angry posts – the ones that make my mom cringe). Someone asked me once about the worst thing about travelling, no doubt thinking I’d say something like “I miss my family/my friends/my dog” or “I wish I could have my bed”. […]

Rent our Apartment in Split!

We might have the most unusual apartment in Split. 6 months ago when we decided to make Split our base one of the considerations was being able to rent out our accommodations while we travel. We love Split but we also never want to stop travelling. We found an apartment we liked and have been […]

Besides one of the most incredible natural setting anywhere (of the places we’ve visited only Cape Town compares), its old town is […]
