Why Bol (Brač Island) should be on your list of places to visit in Croatia

Bol, on Brač island, is one of our favorite island towns in Croatia. So what makes Bol so special? Unlike Hvar town or Korčula town, Bol doesn’t have much in the way of historical attractions. It’s a small and pretty town – but there are lots of small, pretty places in Croatia. What makes Bol […]

Split to Makarska by bike. And why Croatia has made me fall in love with biking again

This post won’t interest many readers. But if you’ve ever thought about riding your bike along the beautiful coastline between Split and Makarska then you might find it valuable (I could find absolutely nothing on this ride on the internet). Last summer we shipped all our belongings from Canada to Croatia, including my 35 year […]

Italian City Rumble! Venice, Rome or Bologna – which should you Visit?

Two Italian tourism heavyweights and a city most people associate with lunch meat. But wait, don’t be too quick in dismissing Bologna. Last year Lissette and I spent 5 weeks based in Italy.

My favorite blogs have a few things in common: they introduce me to new destinations, they are geared to the independent traveller, they’re honest in presenting a true picture of a destination or travel in general. I’m drawn to bloggers who travel […]

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 […]

Guns, Strippers – and other Unusual things to see and do in Prague

I always hear people complain that Prague is too touristy. There’s some truth to that – but most of the “too touristy” problem in Prague is due to tourists going to all of the same (ie. usual) places. See this post I wrote a few years ago on 50 Things to Do in Prague. We […]
