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

Sorrow In Sarajevo: A Heartbreaking Tale Of The Bosnian Capital

It's 25 years since the war ended in Bosnia - and yet it still bears scars that no country should have to endure. Sarajevo, Bosnia's capital city, had never made it onto my radar until I started researching it for this trip. What I found was an incredibly interesting city with a harrowing past and… Continue reading Sorrow In Sarajevo: A Heartbreaking Tale Of The Bosnian Capital

Exploring Beautiful Belgrade

Belgrade was another eastern European city that really took me by surprise with its pretty architecture and funky bars and cafés. Like Sofia, I had literally zero expectations for Belgrade.

When I was younger, I became enthralled by it when I saw a photo of it on a calendar in my best friend's parents' house (long before it became a default feature in Windows photo folders) and my brain whirred into… Continue reading That Time We Were Trapped In Monument Valley

Then we arrived in Australia and we kept hearing the same thing. Cairns is… Continue reading Cairns And Snorkelling The Great Barrier Reef

All Aboard The Freight Train: Sailing The Whitsundays

Sailing the Whitsundays was one of my most anticipated activities in Australia - sailing through paradise islands just invokes romantic pictures, doesn't it? Not to mention the unbelievably picturesque Whitehaven Beach that's become an icon of Australia. The biggest problem with the Whitsundays is there are just SO many options for who to sail with.… Continue reading All Aboard The Freight Train: Sailing The Whitsundays

Driving on Beaches and Swimming in Lakes on Fraser Island

I think what surprised us the most about the largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island, was that it was our highlight of the Australian east coast. We had heard plenty of other people say the same thing, but shook it off because surely it can't be better than the Whitsundays? And we'll definitely prefer Cairns,… Continue reading Driving on Beaches and Swimming in Lakes on Fraser Island
