  Last summer, we travelled from Norway all the way down through Europe to Croatia. We visited Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Poland and Hungary on the way. One of our very favourite parts of the whole, epic trip was spending a week in the Slokian High Tatras, hiking from hut to hut. You may have already read about our favourite Mountain Huts in the Slovakian High Tatras, however, in this little article, I’m going to write about and share photos of…

We will then drive across from East to West and spend some time in Galway before driving north to Ireland’s only Fjord – Killary Harbour. After some days lapping up the countryside and coast of…

  Give your car a check up You want to walk around your car or van and give it a really good once over. Then move to the windscreen and look at the wiper blades. You must replace any worn out blades.

  Discover Plitvice Lakes National Park On your way to Split, the first thing I recommend doing is to head to the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Being one of the oldest and largest national parks in Croatia, with UNESCO status, it is a must. The lakes are absolutely stunning and such a fantastic day out. As soon as you arrive, hop on the transfer bus down through the woodland area. Then follow the trails, across the wooden paths and bridges.…

Probably one of the easiest Game Of Thrones landmarks to Recognise in Dubrovnik are the steps from the Great Sept of Baelor in King’s Landing aka the ‘Shame Steps’. In real life these are actually the Dubrovnik’s Jesuit steps. Because they are so iconic and are situated right in the centre of the walled old town of Dubrovnik. These steps are very busy and a very popular photo stop. When we first found them…

On one side you get amazing views…

  Relax at Szechenyi Baths After a recommendation, we chose to visit the Szechenyi Bath House whilst in Budapest. There are quite a few bath houes around the city, but this particular one is fantastic. It is open from 6am until 10pm at night (last entry is around 7pm), but it does get busy around lunchtime onwards, so make sure you get there around 9am to make the most of your time there during the quieter times. As part of…

During our summer European adventure, we decided that we would leave the cities behind us for just over a week and trek through the Slovakian High Tatras. The best way to really get into the mountains and explore the most of them is by trekking hut to hut. There are lots of tours that offer pre-arranged and organised guided and self-guided tours but we decided that we could do it…
