The Causeway Coastal Route is a real cliffhanger

It’s hard to believe that the breathtaking destinations along the way are so close to home. The route takes you past some of the countries spine tingling scenery and stunning views. The Gobbins, Torr Head and Whitepark Bay are just some of the places you can explore along the way, before visiting the famous Giants Causeway and the reason why this road trip found its name.

Strolling through the alleyways of Auray

Auray is a charming town, with cobbled streets and historic half-timbered houses, known particularly for its extremely picturesque harbour, Saint Goustan. Nowadays, it is a pleasant yachting harbour with an abundance of restaurants and bars at which to enjoy the lovely views.

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.

On our first venture out we explored some of the towns lovely little cafes surrounding the square with great views of the medieval castle.

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.

Visby is often called “The City of Roses”

It’s hard to overstate the beauty of the Hanseatic port town of Visby (Sweden), in itself justification for making the ferry trip to Gotland. Inside its thick medieval walls are twisting cobblestone streets, fairy-tale cottages draped in flowers, and gorgeous ruins atop hills with stunning Baltic views.

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.

Meet me at Lucerne’s Kapellbrücke bridge

En route to Zurich from Bern, you can stop at this Swiss gem of a city. Lucerne (or “Luzern”) is situated in the midst of nature, with its eponymous lake and view of the Alps within it. The city is famous for its Chapel Bridge, a 14th-century bridge which has burned down several times over the centuries, but continues to stay upright.
