Day 77. Before I show you why, let me tell you the few fails I encountered on my stay in Korenica. So the thing is, there is precisely one youth hostel in Korenica, the recluse little town where UNESCO’s Plitvice Lakes are. Not only the bus had kind of a weird schedule, it dropped me… Continue Reading →
DAY 71. There’s just no way, no way, that I find my hostel on the first try. I always get lost, even though I check the routes 12 976 times first. In Zadar, for some reason, every street that I took led me to the beach—which could’ve been bloody magical if I hadn’t been carrying 12… Continue Reading →
Day 65. I grew geographically claustrophobic at the thought of being squared by cities. Brussels, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Berlin; all amazing places, but all big cities, in the very middle of the country, surrounded by tall buildings and cars. I needed to see the sea, the ocean, or at least a huge lake. I needed to not be… Continue Reading →
Time to update my European bucket list because I’ve visited a couple of other countries in the last months! But man, oh man, Europe is HUGE. My total is still kind of low and it just makes me realize HOW BIG THE WORLD IS. So much more to see out there. Anyway, here’s my result:
So this morning I was playing around with interactive maps where you can enter the places you’ve visited, like an online scratch map. I wanted to see how much of Europe I had actually covered, because I felt like I’d done a pretty good part of it, and MY OH MY WAS I WRONG.
There are many places on my bucket list (the whole world) and I try to focus on new places to visit as much as I can, but today I want to take a pause and think about a few of my favorite places in the world. Places I would go back to without a second… Continue Reading →
What? That is so nice! I want to thank Lara so much for the nomination! Everybody go check out her awesome blog, The Blackberry Season, about lifestyle and travelling; it is so well written and her talent for photography will make you jealous (in a good way, really). If the bloggers I nominate choose to… Continue Reading →
I’m super happy that the great Matea nominated me for this travel tag–check out her awesome blog here. I know it’s been a while since I posted about travelling, so this is the golden opportunity for me to do so!
As I previously said, I usually need to switch my default setting from I So Badly Want To Go There One Day, to OMG, I’m Really Doing This? Let Me Get My Shit Together And I’m Ready To Go, in order to make a trip happen. And here are more ways for me to achieve… Continue Reading →
I was talking with a friend traveller and we realized that, besides the obvious–seeing back everyone, half-unpacking, doing your laundry–there are multiple things we never thought we would miss during a long trip abroad. Here’s my list:
As I mentioned before, one thing I love to do when I travel is to find a nice spot where to spark my imagination and write. So here are my favourite European ones so far.
Day 70. The plan was to make my way up Croatia, since I had started at the bottom in Dubrovnik. But on the way to Zadar is a great Bosnian city (Mostar) so close to the border it would be just silly not to go. So I went.
