What the fuss is all about in Grasmere

Arriving in Grasmere we instantly fell in love with the place. It was charming, and quintessentially English. A wander around the village confirmed that it was super dog friendly. There were dogs welcome signs everywhere – yay.

Is Durmitor NP wild enough for you?

Durmitor National Park, a magnificent massif in the Dinaric Alps where wild wolves and brown bears roam freely. Its grassy meadows, silent glacier lakes and various towering peaks, the highest being mount Bobotov Kuk at 2523 m, had lured us to Zabljak, the gateway to the national park.

Bring watershoes when visiting Krka National Park

Before visiting Croatia, what came to mind was its beautiful coastlines dotted with enchanting old towns. What I found more unexpected after my recent trip was its jaw-droppingly stunning national parks, none more so than Krka National Park.

Situated around an hour and a half from Split, the park is perfect for a sunny day of hiking, swimming, exploring, and just enjoying nature.

Snowdonia, a full spectrum for the senses

Snowdonia is known for its wet weather, but variation is the spice of life. On a grim day its moody and then when the sun shines, the region sparkles with crisp clarity. In the summer, the hours are long and in the winter, the peaks are coated with snow.

Tranquil reflections on Lake Obersee

Obersee is only accessible by boat and there is nowhere to stay once you get there, so we were repeatedly warned that if we miss the last boat, we were stuck on our own! The boat ride was about an hour long and the whole way we were surrounded by amazing views.

The aquamarine pools of Plitvice

Sometimes, words don’t do a place justice, so I will keep this brief. Aquamarine pools, waterfalls bubbling over green moss and water shooting down from the earth like a natural fountain makes this park a truly special place.

Killarney, maybe our favorite destination in Ireland

Killarney, maybe our favorite destination in Ireland. Why? First, the beautiful town in set at the doorstep of a national park with great forests, mountains and lakes for you to explore.
