Wild, Wacky Skopje (Macedonia). One of the Strangest Places we’ve been

Skopje is not the most beautiful place we’ve visited. But it might just be the most interesting and weirdest place we’ve ever been. Everywhere we walked we had “WTF?” moments: “there’s a pirate ship in the middle of the river! WTF?”, “look, there’s a London double decker bus! WTF?”, “those colors all over the monuments! [...]

Driving Spectacular Mt. Biokovo, Croatia

Mount Biokovo has some of the most stunning views I’ve seen anywhere. I’d seen photos before and wanted to visit – but when I went with Croatian friends Goran and Vedran (who had never been) we were all blown away by the natural beauty and incredible views in this Nature Park. What makes Biokovo an [...]

Ziplining in Omis, Croatia

A year ago I made a deal with Vedran, our Croatian friend. “If we come back to Croatia next year we’re going to go ziplining”. We shook hands on it. Why ziplining? We were standing at the top of the Starigrad fortress in Omiš, a little town in Croatia that is also the country’s adventure [...]

The place to stay in San Miguel de Allende

Where to stay in beautiful San Miguel de Allende? Stay where I do – at my mom’s !  It’s private, centrally located – and the value is phenomenal ($28 USD per night). Here is a video I shot of the patio and room. Everything that you see in this video is your private domain when you [...]

Photo Essay on Rovinj. It’s beautiful – but there are even better reasons to visit

Rovinj is a very pretty small town and for many people that’s reason enough to make it a place worth visiting. Many will spend 2-3 days and will most likely rave about its romantic charm, colorful streets and glorious sunsets.  People staying longer (like us – we used Rovinj as a base for 5 weeks) [...]

The Pueblo Magico town of Patzcuaro, Michoacán (Mexico)

The ‘Pueblo Magico’ town of Patzcuaro, Michoacán (Mexico)

One of the prettiest little towns I was going to see on my recent trip to Mexico was the town of Patzcuaro. Located in the state of Michoacán, it is one of 83 “Pueblo Magicos” (Magical Towns) designated by Mexico’s Tourism department. The designation is meant to promote towns around the country that offer visitors [...]

Morelia (Michoacán) and why even UNESCO listed world heritage sites can leave you feeling blah Mexico 2

Morelia (Michoacán) and why even UNESCO listed world heritage sites can leave you feeling blah

I guess it was my fault. When planning my trip to Mexico I had mentioned to my mom that we should visit Morelia. She had told me that she hadn’t heard great things about the city. “But mom, the historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage site”. It had to be impressive, right? Morelia left [...]

Guanajuato, Mexico – the prettiest town I’ve ever seen

I love Guanajuato, it’s the prettiest town I’ve seen anywhere. I was here a few years ago and had my visit ruined when I came down with a horrible case of the craps (don’t ever order a salad in Mexico). So this time around I had a mission – to come back to Guanajuato and [...]
