No modern conveniences in Prokosko Jezero

Located 1670 meters above sea level this shepherd town with no electricity attracts tourists during spring and summer. When winter hits, the entire town is covered in snow forcing the inhabitants to take their flocks and reside in towns at the base of the mountain. The scenic mountaintop is perfect for hiking but don’t expect modern conveniences!

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.

Český Krumlov, a Bohemian Rhapsody

Walking down the cobbled stone laneways of Český Krumlov early in the morning, it is easy to feel like you are stepping back in time. The streets of this South Bohemian town are lined with gothic, renaissance and baroque style houses, with large boulders on every corner, placed originally to avoid damage from the horse and carts cutting corners.

50 shades of pastel in Porvoo

Bright sunshine had returned as I came out of the cathedral, so I spent some more time wandering the cobbled lanes of the old town with their wood-panelled houses painted in pastel shades of yellow, pink, blue, green and grey.

La Roque-Gageac on a frosty morning

The following morning we awoke to a light frost, the frosty whiteness sticking all the loose fallen leaves to the picnic table beside us. We got moving reasonably early, with a plan to jump over to the next beau village, La Roque-Gageac, only a handful of miles along the valley floor. We soon arrived and parked up, before walking first to the banks of the passing river to take in the wonderful reflective view of the town’s collective façade.

Lovely little Vianden

Vianden is lovely. I fell in love with this small town while I was still on the bus. It has a small river winding its way through the town, with steep hills either side, and the houses are old and quaint, the streets are cobbled and quiet. It’s probably busy at the height of summer, but at the beginning of October it was nice and peaceful.

The dramatic backdrop of Innsbruck

Innsbruck is a university town and winter sports center about two hours east of Bregenz, in the Tirol province. Skiing aficionados congregate here during the winter months. The town has hosted the Winter Olympics a few times. My favorite part of this place is the architecture and its dramatic backdrop: the Karwendel Alps.

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.

Denmark – The white cliffs of Møn

We’ve started our visit of this island in Stege. Camper Coby found herself a central spot almost in the middle of the town’s center which is really nice.

One of the highlights of Møn is Mont Klif. The visit is only DK 35 but your energy will cost you more… This is the largest staircase of Denmark and you will definitely feel this in your legs the next day. But it was all worth it! A beautiful cliff surrounded by nature, birds and clear blue water.

Views: Cochem, Germany

This little town on the banks of the Moselle river really took us by surprise. We planned the trip on a whim and didn’t have many expectations. Cochem is a very peaceful town which allows you wake up and enjoy a slow breakfast, stroll the streets at your own pace, and even have an impromptu wine tasting of the local grape: Reisling.
