I’ve previously written about Omis and why it is my favorite Croatian town. But there is another attraction outside town that I had previously heard of and had always wanted to see – the Mila Gojsalić statue. [Read more...]
I guess it’s a natural progression – working the 9-5 lifestyle, leaving it all to travel full-time, followed by the inevitable…finding a base somewhere.
We’re not quite there yet but, after 2 ½ years of full-time travel, 2017 might be the year we actually sign a lease somewhere. It is in no way a rejection of the full-time travel lifestyle – we love travelling and exploring different places as much as ever. [Read more...]

With the US elections only days away, many people have been focused on the things Donald Trump says and tweets. Somehow, with all his trash talk, lack of substance on issues, denigration of women, racist comments, deflection on tough questions and blustery hyperbole he not only gets away with things but has fans hanging on his every word.
So, I was thinking, what if Donald Trump was a Travel Blogger? Even for just one day? [Read more...]
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 easy place to visit is that you can drive to the very top of the massive, a 23 km drive that brings to Sv. Jure (the 3rd highest peak in Croatia). It is the highest road in Croatia. [Read more...]
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 stay here (my mom lives down below). [Read more...]
I’ll usually do a post on a city and at the bottom mention where we stayed. This time I’ll do it the other way around. Because how we felt about Rovinj was totally eclipsed by the incredible, fantastic, amazing and extraordinary Croatian family that hosted us. I’ve never done a post uniquely addressing a place of accommodation so this is a first.
We stayed a total of 5 weeks in Marina’s apartment. On the first day we were treated to a full meal (made by Marina) served to us on our balcony. She’s a professional chef by the way. As we would find out, nothing you eat in Rovinj will compare to her cooking. Throughout our stay there were surprises: strawberries or salad left at our door, home-made crepes with (of course) home-made jam, home-made cakes, a large fish platter, seafood soup, a spinach dish, risotto…I could go on and on with all the food she plied us with over 5 weeks.

In the past we’ve been shy to be interviewed on other blogs. We also never thought of promoting the blog through the media. That suddenly changed over the past few weeks and through both chance and opportunity we’ve either written or been interviewed through different media and press.
Prepare to be fed up with our faces. [Read more...]
Travelling is not always pretty. The worst aspect of travelling for us is dealing with humanity. Case in point: our recent 13 hours getting from Prague to Padova (Italy). Some uncensored thoughts along the way… [Read more...]
We spent 3 months in Croatia last year, staying in Airbnb apartments as we covered most of this country. Looking for something more luxurious? Well, how about renting a villa? I’ve teamed up with Villa Plus on this post to share my list of 10 of the Best Hikes in Croatia, a topic close to my heart. [Read more...]
