The Causeway Coastal Route is a real cliffhanger

It’s hard to believe that the breathtaking destinations along the way are so close to home. The route takes you past some of the countries spine tingling scenery and stunning views. The Gobbins, Torr Head and Whitepark Bay are just some of the places you can explore along the way, before visiting the famous Giants Causeway and the reason why this road trip found its name.

White Cliffs of Dover, icon of Britain

This landscape was surprisingly different to any other I had seen before – which is just what I had hoped for. The cliffs were high and dropped straight into the ocean. When standing on top of them there were no restrictions. You’re only barrier was your level of comfort with standing so close to the edge.

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.

Esch-sur-Sûre for sure

Another cute little fairytale town with a castle, although this one is in ruins (the castle, not the town). The original 8m tall tower still stands on a giant cliffside, and the town is almost completely encircled by the winding Sûre River.

Ostrog Monastery is carved in a cliff

We aren’t here to worship, we aren’t here on a pilgrimage, we are here because this is one of the major cultural attractions in Montenegro. No one has questioned our presence here, in fact the only attention we’ve had is from some Dutch tourists.

You probably never heard of Blagaj

On our way to Dubrovnik, we stopped on the cliff side of Blagaj, Bosnia. I have no idea if this place holds an historic significance or if it’s just a photo op. Either way the place was gorgeous and I loved the water coming out of the cliff side and the way the restaurants show cased it.
