Plitvice Lakes National Park

My sister and I took a 3hr bus ride from Split to Plitvice Lakes National Park which is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia.  We stayed in a farm style B&B which was in the middle of nowhere but a stunning location. We ventured into the national park […]

Greek Island Hopping

We are visiting just two greek islands on this trip as we are a little pushed for time.  Our first stop is the beautiful Mykonos.  We have chosen to rent an apartment on the beach in a quiet part of the island, about a 10-15min walk into the main town. (The clubs and bars are […]

Galta Ji (Monkey Temple)

A pre-historic Hindu pilgrimage site, the Galtaji Temple, is located only 10km away from Jaipur. One of the jewels of Jaipur, the temple complex encompasses natural fresh water springs and 7 holy ‘kunds’ or water tanks. Among these kunds, the ‘Galta Kund’, is the holiest one and is believed to never get dry. A spring […]

Holi Festival of Colours

Holi is a period of joyous festivity where people sprinkle colours to welcome the spring which is also the season of romantic love. Although its a primarily Hindu festival many other communities join in too. It is customary on this day to visit friends and relations with sweets and colour. This festival also has many […]

Taj Mahal

We hired a private driver in Delhi for the next 3 weeks to ensure we can get to all the locations we want to see. After a 5 hour drive to Agra we checked into our hotel to get an early night ready for our visit to the Taj Mahal the next day. The Taj Mahal […]

Kashmir

After a fairly difficult few days in Delhi we decided to visit a travel agent and book a tour out of the city.  We envisioned yoga, meditating and cooking classes in the mountains followed by a rafting trip down the ganges river. The travel agent informed us it was not the right time of year […]

Cinque Terre

Easily one of my favourite places on earth!  The pictured I had seen of these 5 villages embedded in the cliffs perfectly depict the beauty of this place. The Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of the 5 towns, colourful houses and ancient vineyards […]

Leaning tower in Pisa

Construction on the tower started in 1173 AD near the city’s cathedral on a piece of land known as Piazza dei Miracoli (“Square of Miracles”). The tower was round and 52 feet (16m) in diameter at the base with a projected height of 191 feet (58m). The first level was to be taller than the […]

Cesky Krumlov

I love Cesky Krumlov! It’s a small town in Southern Bohemia, has long been recognised as travellers to Europe as one of the most charming fairytale towns in all of Europe. I couldn’t be happier that tacked this location on to my visit to the Czech Republic.   On my second day in Cesky Krumlov I hired […]

3 Days in Prague

Prague is a destination that always seems to be in vogue. It’s a city I have always dreamt of visiting and it is my first European stop (apart from London) on my 6 month backpacking tour. Prague is a gorgeous, well-preserved medieval city coupled with a rich history, expansive parks, buzzing nightlife (a lot of stag […]
