Not a single soul in Fjällbacka

Riding into Fjällbacka was a dream. It’s the most picturesque town I have ever been to. Tiny white houses with red roofs line the rocky shore over crystal blue waters. It’s a small town and it felt even smaller because we literally didn’t see a single person while crossing through the town north to south, in search of our campground.

Vik and the beauty of emptiness

The town of Vik is stunning and it’s easily recognisable for its colourful houses and red-roofed church. Vik is nestled in southern Iceland. Home to under 400 people, it’s services provide a lifeline to the people who live in the remote landscape. With the emptiness, however, comes true beauty.

Being part of the magic at Lake Constance

It is not often I go to a town and explore it completely afresh. No map, no tourist information centre, no research. When I arrived in Lake Constance (Bodensee), it was pouring with rain. The view over the lake was stunning – crisp blue water, pretty roof tops and a tall church spire. It felt like magic was happening up there and that I was a part of it.

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.
