"What's your favourite country?" "...favourite city?" "...favourite place in the world?" I don't have the answers to these questions, but this post comes pretty close. Here I have listed all of my *current* travel top threes. Ie. my very favourite places on the planet, and why.
Letter 123 After spending just over 3 weeks of my summer travelling around Croatia, visiting 10 different places, I feel I can shed some light on how much Croatia will set you back. From accommodation to travel and activities to food, I've got you covered! TOTAL SPENT: £810.76 Brief Summary Average per week … Continue reading Complete Croatia Itinerary and Costs Revealed!
Letter 110 Finally made it to my last stop in Croatia. 3 weeks in the country culminated with this remarkable city and it was actually a pretty perfect end to this part of my trip. Dubrovnik was big, beautiful and busy. The old town is something special with yet more cobbled steep streets, stone buildings … Continue reading The many highs and few lows of Dubrovnik
Letter 108 Island hopping on an organised sail trip is very popular in Croatia, but you can also do it on your own. As I was pushed for time at the end of my stint in Croatia I went from Split to Brač and then over to Korčula before Dubrovnik. I liked this little route however I … Continue reading Island escapes: Brač and Korčula
Letter 107 For me Split wasn't a number one place on my list to visit, however I did spend one day there. From Šibenik it was only an hour and a half away so I left early, spent most of the day in Split and then headed off to the islands later in the afternoon. I … Continue reading A snippet of Split
Letter 106 The two main national parks in Croatia are Krka, known primarily for the giant waterfall you can swim in, and Plitvice, known for the bright blue lakes and winding footpaths. As I've now visited both, I thought I'd weigh in on the subject. I've already written about Plitvice here, so this will mainly … Continue reading Krka or Plitvice?
Letter 105 A city steeped on the banks of the Adriatic overlooking nearby islands, featuring four fortresses, many churches, a maze of cobbles and spellbinding sunsets - and yet hardly anyone visits. Šibenik is located about halfway between Zadar and Split and only a short drive away from Skradin and the entrance to the Krka National … Continue reading The most underrated Croatian city: Šibenik
Letter 104 Zadar was the Croatian city I was most looking forward to visiting - and it didn't disappoint. The fantastic hostel I stayed in, people I met and things I did made those 4 days some of the best of my trip. So allow me to tell you about Zadar! The Old Town Like … Continue reading Zadar: hiking to an abandoned fortress
Letter 103 The majority of travellers in Croatia don't go up north to Pula, let alone make the extra journey up to the small town of Rovinj. These two are part of Istria, an Italianate province with beautiful architecture, beaches and nature and should not be missed! Rovinj may be my favourite place I've visited … Continue reading Romantic Rovinj
Letter 102 A lot has happened since I last posted a letter at the right time. The last two weeks have been incredibly busy and equally amazing. I spent most of the time with my boyfriend, friends from home and new friends I made in Zagreb and have had so much fun. So instead of … Continue reading BUDAPEST, ZAGREB, PLITVICE AND PULA
