Bergen as your gateway to the fjords

Bergen is marketed as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’; it’s where countless excursions to glaciers, Fjords and mountains depart from, and the ease of getting to some of Norway’s most incredible landscapes was probably the main reason we wanted to go there.

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.

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.

Famous ancient Puente Nuevo in Ronda

Gibraltar and the African Coast were clearly visible. Small white towns and villages were precariously perched on the hillside and then Ronda was seen on the horizon.

Jutland, land of enchanted light

Huge sand dunes whipped up by vicious North Sea winds are threatening to swallow it completely, and the coastline that it stands proudly upon is being eroded alarmingly quickly. Buried by sand or collapsing into the sea?

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.
