"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 134 "You could've dropped a whale from that cliff and my splash would've been bigger." The beach is called 'Dead Goat Beach'. It's a tiny cove in Montenegro surrounded by striking orange cliffs with crystal blue waves rolling up on the white pebbles. The slight catch - it can only be accessed by violently … Continue reading Cliff-jumping or Thigh-flopping?

Letter 115 "At least one of you will probably experience vertigo" said our hostel owner and expert on all things in Durmitor National Park. Would it be me? I'd never been to 2,500m before - I hadn't even been to the tallest peak in the UK, which only rises to a measly 1,345m - so … Continue reading Hiking in Montenegro’s Black Mountains
Letter 114 As I headed towards the border of Montenegro and Albania I encountered the city of Ulcinj.

This hostel was a home from home, offered me so much friendliness and showed me more of beautiful Montenegro than I had ever hoped. The … Continue reading The Best Hostel!
Letter 112 In a bid to start November the way I mean to go on, I would like to share with you all the joys of the Bay of Kotor, a place that holds a special spot in my heart and where a lot of memories were made. I've spoke previously about my excitement towards … Continue reading Reminiscing about the beautiful Bay of Kotor
Letter 111 I'm pretty certain I'm one of the worst bloggers out there. Honestly, I'm not even sure I can call myself a blogger. Maybe I can when I'm no longer suffocated by deadlines and restricted to spending most of my waking hours in the studio I'll get better. Or maybe I just need a … Continue reading Bad at blogging and missing Montenegro
Letter 86 Finally I can visualize a time when I'm not drowning in deadlines and instead drowning in the rush of warm air as I step off the plane. I can finally feel summer creeping up on me, with 4 months of freedom stretching far ahead into September. I've written my 'study' timetable, I've planned … Continue reading First flight booked!
Letter 51 With only 4 days of 2016 remaining I thought I would write a letter about what 2017 will hold for me. It will also give you an idea of what letters to expect throughout the new year. But first, I hope you all had a magical Christmas with friends, family or acquaintances and … Continue reading Should auld acquaintance be forgot?
