Apulia, Trulli incredible

It’s both a blessing and a curse that more people don’t know about Apulia (Puglia). And what I mean is that for those who do know and have visited, they fall in love with the charming towns and beaches and fresh seafood and delicious wines.

More to Budva than beach

Later in the day, I took a walk back inside the Old Town, through the castle and around the stone walls that encircled this magical place. It felt like my hidden paradise, with the best views over the water. The rooftops were covered in kiwi fruit vines, providing much-needed shade to the inhabitants below.

Girona – Catalan gem with a French feel

It’s often overlooked as people head to the nearby beaches of Costa Brava. Which is a shame, as I think its well worth stopping to explore what Girona has to offer. It’s a charming city brimming with history and culture and has a little bit of a French feel. Not really surprising seeing as Girona is just 140km from the Spain/France border.

Walking the city walls of Dubrovnik

I arrived in Dubrovnik in the peak of Summer. It was so hot, that I found myself lounging around on pebbled beaches, dipping in and out of the Adriatic Sea, eating at least a gelato a day and drinking ice-cold beer until the sun went down.

Calabria, on the toe of Italy’s boot

Located on the “toe of Italy’s boot”, it’s home to 781 kilometers (485 miles) of coast. Being closer to North Africa than San Francisco to Santa Barbara, the region gets 300 to 320 sunny days a year, which makes it a nice all-year-round destination.

Coastline and hills, sunshine all day, rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, delicious Italian food and spicy regional dishes- Calabria has it all.

Sveti Stefan, beach beds not included

Sveti Stefan is a small islet with a 5-star hotel resort on the Adriatic Coast, just south of Budva. Its a beautiful resort with lovely beaches. Don’t expect a free beach bed and umbrella – it comes at a price of $75 per day. We enjoyed the views from above.

Praia da Marinha, if you dare

The road snaked its way up a hill, and at the top I promptly got lost in a labyrinth of bushes that kept coming to dead ends. It was like a maze, and after I hadn’t seen a single other person for fifteen minutes, I started to panic…

Croatia: Coast/beach life in Split

During our time in Croatia we did spend a fair amount of time just lounging by the spectacular coast and we often found really nice spots for our camper close to the sea. We tried to take it easy and spend a few days in a place, dividing our time between playing games, the beach, everyday activities like eating, shopping, and also seeing a few of the local highlights.
