Driving around this beautiful island there is always either a volcano or glacier in sight… Iceland definitely is one of the most impressive places I’ve ever visited! Iceland…

I know it’s not nearly as much as in 2015, but…

Ireland Packing List For A 5 Day Campervan Road Trip In Autumn

In October I went to Ireland and made an awesome 5 day road trip. Driving around in our campervan, my husband and I explored part of the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland. And wow, Ireland is a beautiful country. Traveling by campervan means you don’t have to continuously lug around your stuff which is great. However, that didn’t…

Ireland Travel Budget: The Costs Of A 5 Day Trip

Let me start by saying my 5 day road trip around Ireland was not a budget trip. It was a trip to celebrate my 7 year wedding anniversary, something I am planning to do just once in my life?. Therefore, I did not try to make this trip as cheap as possible and you can very well travel Ireland for less.…

Ireland had been on my bucket list for a long time… There was just something about the country that really made me want to visit this gorgeous island.

Vrboska, An Enchanting Fishing Village In Croatia

I spent a wonderful week sailing around Croatia with my family. The Central Dalmatian Archipelago truly impressed me, the landscapes were amazing and the Croatian people very welcoming. However, I was particularly awestruck by the picture-perfect villages on the islands Hvar, Vis and Brač. I visited several stunning towns but I am still having a hard time choosing which village…

1 Week Sailing Trip In Croatia: A Budget Breakdown

I’ll be honest about it: sailing in Croatia isn’t cheap. However, you don’t have to be a millionaire to hire your own boat and set sail for unknown destinations! Sure, costs are higher than backpacking around Southeast Asia. And probably also more expensive than backpacking around East Europe, though I have no personal reference as I haven’t done that (yet;-). That being…

Stari Grad, the most beautiful town in Croatia (and possibly the world)

The east part of Europe is an area where I have not traveled much (yet;-). Besides a weekend in Prague and a week on Crete, I’ve only been to Croatia. But I am planning to change that, because the villages I visited during my 1 week sailing trip in the Central Dalmatian Archipelago were absolutely gorgeous. And really old too!…
