What You Must Do In The Slovakian High Tatras

  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.

A Playlist for an Irish Road Trip

In February, Vicky and I will be heading to Ireland for a pretty awesome road trip.

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…
