Sep 24, 2018

This week is our anniversary. It is a year since we started our travelling. So we thought we would do a post about our top 20 adventures this year. It is not so much a 1 – 20. It is more 20 amazing adventures. That is why we have decided to put them in the

A little walk becomes a trek in Milna

A little walk becomes a trek in Milna

Sep 22, 2018

We arrived in Milna on the late ferry from Mljet. As we peered out into the dark, it was very reassuring to see our Airbnb hosts standing on the quayside waiting for us. They had already told us, on e-mail, that the accommodation was only about 50 metres from the ferry. So a quick walk

Sobra – just enough and not too much!

Sobra – just enough and not too much!

Sep 20, 2018

“You can visit the National Park. You can hire a car. You can explore a cave……” As we disembarked from our ferry at Sobra, our lovely airbnb hostess was very keen to make sure that we had plenty to do while we were on the island of Mljet. She was slightly perplexed as we tried

Molunat – a perfect lunch spot

Molunat – a perfect lunch spot

Sep 19, 2018

As we left Kotor, Suzannah and I both had the same idea. We were on our way to Dubrovnik to return our hire car and we wanted to find a perfect lunch spot. A little sandy bay with a small restaurant, some sea food and a great view. It felt so unlikely that we had

A quiet day in Kotor, Montenegro

A quiet day in Kotor, Montenegro

Sep 17, 2018

After all our gadding about in recent days we thought a quiet day was called for today. I explored the intricacies of  the Montenegrin washing machine and James stitched a new patch on his famous hat. Then we set out to walk into Kotor, we thought it easier than driving and parking the car. Only

Majestic Montenegro

Majestic Montenegro

Sep 16, 2018

Montenegro is a spectacular place, no two ways about it. We woke this morning to see even a huge cruise boat dwarfed by the mountains. Today was suppose to be quieter than yesterday, but hey we wanted to get out and explore more of Montenegro. We had a couple of recommendation to check out didn’t

Suzannah’s Montenegro James Bond Fantasy

Suzannah’s Montenegro James Bond Fantasy

Sep 15, 2018

We were sad to leave Mostar. The friendliness of everyone we met there was amazing. But it was time to fulfil one of Suzannah’s fantasies. Montenegro has always been associated with James Bond in her mind and she just wanted to see it. Our day started with the sat nav deciding, that as we were

Mostar, Bosnia – we love it!

Mostar, Bosnia – we love it!

Sep 14, 2018

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

Our drive to Mostar, Bosnia

Our drive to Mostar, Bosnia

Sep 13, 2018

Our drive to Mostar did not start very well. The man from the car hire company arrived late to say that there was a problem. The boot would not lock properly. While he and I were doing boy stuff and trying to work out how to tie it closed, Suzannah was making friends with the

A day in Dubrovnik

A day in Dubrovnik

Sep 12, 2018

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. Of course there are the delivery trucks making the most of the limited time they are allowed in the old city, but we manage to overlook them.

Croatia is all about steps.

Croatia is all about steps.

Sep 11, 2018

As we travel around the world, there are often technologies that are completely missing in particular countries. In Asia, for instance, copper wire telephone infrastructure was never really there. So they went straight to mobile phones. In Croatia, the technology that is missing is lifts. That magical ability to get in a little cage and

Why spoil the story of Korcula?

Why spoil the story of Korcula?

Sep 9, 2018

One of James’ favourite sayings is “Why let the truth spoil a good story”. And this is certainly true of the gorgeous Croatian island town of Korcula. Their big claim to fame is that Marco Polo was born here. But when you do some further research you come across wonderfully ambiguous statements like¬†“Polo is reputed
