We began our adventure 10 months ago. I cannot believe this. If you asked, I’d say 4..maybe 6. When we started the trip, we had a really good plan, and Croatia and the UK/Ireland were at the end. They seemed so far off, like we would never reach that part…there was SO MUCH to experience… Read More 10 months: reflection
As I write this, the world is reeling from the UK vote to Brexit. I have seen articles of extreme racial/religious hate crimes being committed in the open, just after the vote. (All verbal or written, as far as I have seen-thank goodness). As if a 52% majority suddenly makes it OK to say horrible… Read More On Kindness: Split and Dubrovnik
On Sunday, we packed up out apartment in Rovinj, and headed to the bus station. There is not a lot of passenger train service in Croatia, so we were on buses for a few hours. Our bus left Rovinj at 9:15, and proceeded to head inland towards Karlovac (on the way to Zagreb). We left… Read More Plitvice Lakes National Park

As we were arriving near the harbour, our boat was passed by 2 dolphins rolicking and jumping in the water. The old city of Rovinj was once… Read More Rovinj, Croatia: A Jewel on the Adriatic
Venice. Venezia. A town seeped in mystery. Canals, gondolas, bridges and palaces that are accessible by boat and by foot. We had a week to try to figure out the mystery of Venice. Fist – I really like the name Venezia better than Venice. But the z key on my laptop doesn’t work, so I may… Read More Venezia: A week amongst the canals
From Zurich, we took a quick little train trip into Austria. We visited Austria earlier in the trip (Vienna and Salzburg), but our tip missed the Alpine regions. WE knew we wanted to go from Switzerland to Venice, and since I hoped not to backtrack to Milan, this seemed like a cool route to take.… Read More Innsbruck: a return to the mountains!
