When we travel we always keep an ear open for good advice and tips from fellow travellers. And booking this Croatian holiday we followed the advice of a friend who had done a similar trip last year. Of course, us being us, we changed it around a bit and Mostar wasn’t really going to fit

A day in Dubrovnik

A day in Dubrovnik

A sea of terracotta roofs, first light on ancient buildings and near deserted streets. That is our impression of an early morning in the old town of Dubrovnik.

Loosing ourselves in Zagreb

Loosing ourselves in Zagreb

Aug 29, 2018

In fact we had lots of brochures and maps that our Airbnb hostess had left us but try as we may, all the Croatian street names would not stick in our little Aussie brains. Words like Tkalciceva, Miklousiceva and Trg Bana Josipa Jelacica were not really helping. We

Lake Bled beautiful even in the rain!

Aug 27, 2018

I think the definition of a beautiful place, is that even in the pouring rain it is still beautiful. And this is certainly true of Slovenia’s Lake Bled. We came here today by bus from Ljubljana in driving rain. I kept saying to James, “You know I think it is brightening up”. He would just

Aug 22, 2018

One of the most rewarding aspects of our travels so far has been the experiences that we discover almost by accident. The Flower festival in Chiang Mai was not where we planned to start our Asian adventure but we are very glad we did. The Hot air Balloon Festival in Chiang Rai, just happened to

1.We love animals Ever since I was a little girl I have had a dog, or a cat or often both. And this for me is the hardest part of travelling, not having a pet. So discovering housesitting was like manna from heaven for me. This way I get to love and look after all
