Dubrovnik

Our Airbnb in Dubrovnik was located just outside of town. After a scenic walk through the many alleyways and backstreets, we finally reached Old Town only to find it crawling with tourists. It was very impressive however we were fed up with having to dodge and weave through tour groups and ‘Game of Thrones’ fans […]

Hvar

Hvar has a reputation as a party island and we got that impression as soon as we landed. Million dollar yachts docked in the harbour and lines of fancy restaurants and bars; the island certainly had all the right ingredients.

As soon as we touched down and jumped aboard our bus and train […]

Hikkaduwa

As many of you may know, I have a slight obsession with turtles, norkelling (snorkelling) and elephants. Hikkaduwa will forever be remembered as one of my favourite places for swimming with turtles. These turtles were so big I could spot them out at sea without having to put my glasses on. They’re such chilled creatures […]
