Lake Skadar is the cherry on top

A holiday on Lake Skadar (Skadarsko Jezero) provides daily-changing opportunities to try something different, from kayaking and swimming in the lake’s warm waters to hiking in the surrounding hills, visiting local vineyards, searching out secret waterfalls and happening upon hidden beaches.

Flåm is Norway in a nutshell

A friend once asked me: “Why did you choose Flåm?”. My immediate reply was: “Have you seen the photos?? Goggle it as they speak for themselves!”.

Flåm, a remote township in the middle of the Noreign fjords, is a little slice of picture-perfect paradise. It is a part of the world where nature is still seemingly unspoiled, leaving us in awe of its power and majesty.

Lavertezzo doesn’t need a season to shine

Lavertezzo is by far one of my favorite places in Switzerland with incredible turquoise waters and smooth sunbathing rocks as well as good Italian food (thanks to its close proximity to the border of Italy). Increasingly more popular, this spot is great in spring, summer, and fall although the hotter it is the more likely it is to be crowded (so get here earlier if you can!).

Vis-à-vis with Vis

Due to its distance from the mainland, Vis does not attract as many tourists or visitors compared to the other popular islands such as Hvar or Brac. We loved how serene and peaceful Vis was. This is the perfect destination for a weekend getaway away from the crowds and bustle.

Think Scotland think Glencoe

Chances are, when you think of Scotland, you think of weathered old mountains rolling down into a valley, with a stream running along the bottom and green everywhere. If you are, then you’re thinking of Glencoe.

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.

Green water I saw at Grüner See

Green water I saw in Austria. There is a place called Grüner See. It is a lake in Styria, Austria in a village called Tragöß. The lake is surrounded by the Hochschwab Mountains and forests. The name “Green Lake” originated because of its emerald-green water.

Donegal makes you stay longer than planned

Donegal is a cracking place to visit, if you are prepared to explore. It’s just a few hours from Belfast but a million miles away from life here. It’s raw, historical and full of basic home comforts. So if that’s your thing, then pack your big bag. You’ll likely stay longer than planned.

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.
