Photo Friday: The Beauty Of Bosnia

It's no secret that I loved Bosnia. From the charming towns to the stunning mountains; the villages with backdrops to the sprawling countryside. Bosnia and Herzegovina had way more to offer than I could ever have expected. Of course, most of my photos were taken from the window of a bus, and that's not the… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Beauty Of Bosnia

Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

After Sarajevo, I was bracing myself for Mostar. I knew about the beauty; but I wasn't sure how much the city was still affected by the war, especially compared to Bosnia's capital and the horrors we'd seen there. ...oh boy. The huge difference with Mostar though, is once you get into the historic centre, it… Continue reading Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

It was a city that I had never planned to visit, and it was only when we arrived in the Serbian capital that I realised… Continue reading Exploring Beautiful Belgrade

Photo Friday: A Day Trip To Rila Monastery, Bulgaria

With virtually five days in Sofia, there was no doubt that I was going to get a Bulgarian day trip out of my time there. I was even planning two - but I didn't know what to prioritise in case the second one didn't work out (whiiiich... it didn't). Rila or Plovdiv? Plovdiv or Rila?… Continue reading Photo Friday: A Day Trip To Rila Monastery, Bulgaria

Sofia: A City Of Colour And Contrast

I have to admit: when it came to Sofia, Bulgaria's historic capital, I felt unprepared. I had no expectations; in fact, if I'm going to be totally honest, I didn't actually expect to enjoy the city all that much. I hadn't even been planning to visit Sofia - I was originally planning a trip to… Continue reading Sofia: A City Of Colour And Contrast

Photo Friday: The Street Art Of Shoreditch, London

London never struck me as a huge city for street art. Apart from the famous Banksy artworks and the iconic Camden buildings, I couldn't have told you anything about any other murals in the city, or famous street art alleys like you have in Melbourne and San Francisco. But with the rise of the street… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Street Art Of Shoreditch, London
