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 […]

The colours and churches of San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. And thoughts of living there as an Expat.

When planning my trip to Mexico in June my mom had suggested that we visit San Cristobal de las Casas in the Chiapas region. She had good memories from a previous stay and was considering the possibility of making San Cristobal her new base in Mexico. We flew together (my mom and I – this […]

A Daytrip to Hvar town, Croatia

If you go to Croatia you can’t escape hearing about the island of Hvar, more specifically Hvar Town. It has become the place to go, mostly among the young partygoers and the international jetset. It’s actually been nicknamed the “St. Tropez of the Adriatic” (it’s also been called “the place of Sodom and Gomorrah”. More […]

Our experience shipping belongings from Canada to Europe. Europack VS AGS, costs, and dealing with Croatian duties and taxes.

When we decided to make Split (Croatia) our temporary home earlier this summer one of our priorities was liquidating our assets in Montreal. That meant selling the condo (which we had rented out the last few years) and emptying out our storage unit (a 12*15 ft unit, for which we were paying $275/mo). After weighing […]

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 […]

Split, Croatia Guide (with day trips)

We first came to Split in 2015. After 3 visits, we decided we’d like to live here and in early 2017 applied for temporary residency. We’ve now been living in Split 7 months. Besides one of the most incredible natural setting anywhere (of the places we’ve visited only Cape Town compares), its old town is […]
