Second Impressions of Prague

Image
The grey clouds had followed us up from Bratislava to Prague, not helping my already tainted view of the city. I’d slept most of the journey up, trying to shake the fever I’d had on and off the past couple of days. My first experience of Czech Republic the previous year hadn’t been entirely positive and whilst I was entirely determined to enjoy my last day and night Prague, I couldn’t quite shake the niggle in the back of my mind that this city wasn’t for me.



Where Will Your Adventures Take You?

The hardest part about getting back from a trip is not knowing when you're going to get to go again. Just knowing that more than anything you want to. Since getting home all I've done is look for my next adventure.

The Jewels of Eastern Europe: Getting Behind the Iron Curtain

Image
Today I'm introducing Caitlyn of Olympic Wanderings she's a twenty-something Australian living in the Netherlands. Seven years ago she crammed her life into a backpack affectionately called 'the Beast' and hit the road, anxious to see all the world's Olympic sites. Needless to say, she got a bit distracted along the way. Today she's a tour guide in Europe, and blogs about what she loves; travel, sport and food.

I often hear from travellers to Croatia that they land in Zagreb, collect their bags, and race off to the Dalmatian Coast. I cannot blame them for doing so, of course, but my advice is not to rush off so quickly.

When you think of Croatia, you’ll be forgiven if you only think of beaches along those 1,000 out-of-this world islands. Yet there is a part of Croatia to the north that you should visit while you’re in the land of the red & white checkers. It’s known as Istria.

One of the best things to do in Croatia is to visit the historic old towns. One such place that I always recommend, is the seaside town of Zadar

Local tip: don’t let the abundance of pizza ovens seduce you! Although the pizza in Croatia is indeed fantastic, you need to also be on the lookout for small, often family-run local restaurants called konobas.

For a small country of just over 56,000 square kilometres, you may be surprised to know that there are seven (yes that’s right seven!), Croatian UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Underrated Places in Spain

This post is written by Olivia from Halfway Somewhere. Olivia is a student from Melbourne, Australia who's been living in Spain for the past few months and midway through her first trip across the US. You can follow along on Instagram

When people come to Spain you can usually guess where they're headed. Nine times out of ten it'll be Barcelona, Madrid, or somewhere in the south. There's nothing wrong with those places - they're tourist hot spots for a reason - but there are other areas of Spain that are more than worthy of a visit. I've been living in Spain for a few months now and I made it my mission to find the country's hidden areas. Here are four of them:

As I'm away for the next three weeks, I've got some awesome bloggers writing posts for me. This week we're lucky enough to have Olivia from Halfway Somewhere, and I thought it'd be fun for those who don't know her, to get to know a bit about her...
