I’ve Still Never Used Airbnb – Here’s Why

Airbnb has been receiving a lot of press recently, and not all of it is good. In fact, I would go as far as to say not much of it has been good at all. I remember when Airbnb first started. Bloggers quickly began gushing about the experiences they'd had in someone's home, and soon all… Continue reading I’ve Still Never Used Airbnb – Here’s Why

A Day Wandering Beautiful Vienna

When I think of visiting Austria, I don't necessarily think of Vienna. I think of Salzburg and the Sound Of Music, or the Alpine city of Innsbruck, or more recently, the phenomenally pretty town of Hallstatt (if you don't know it, I suggest you google it immediately). Meanwhile, my mum, as seldom as she ever… Continue reading A Day Wandering Beautiful Vienna

Adventures In Albania: Two Hours In Tirana Is Not Enough

When I saw Albania on the Travel Talk tour itinerary, my interest was immediately piqued, because even on the surface, it's a fascinating country. After all, this is a country that, when I was born, no one knew anything about.

Not only has it become one of the world's hottest tourist spots, which escalated exponentially thanks to Games Of Thrones, but it only flew onto the radar and into people's top spots within the last 10 years. That's a… Continue reading Surviving Dubrovnik – And Falling In Love With It

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
