3 Days in St. Andrew’s & Edinburgh

Day 1 – St. Andrew’s I arrived late last night after a nice 5.5hr train ride to Leuchars (closest station to St. Andrew’s). Jack wasn’t feeling well so I ended up taking a bus to the airbnb I was staying at. The next morning I worked for about 3hours before Jack and Dad came to…

3 Days in Luzern & Surrounding Mountains

Stay: Hotel Schlüssel seit 1545 Franziskanerplatz 12, 6003 Luzern Day 1: Luzern We took a train from Interlaken around 11am and took about 2hours to get to Luzern. There were some nice views along the way, but it was a bit cloudy and rainy so we mostly just played lego Harry Potter lol. It was…

4 Days in Interlaken (& surrounding areas)

Stay: Hotel Rössli, Hauptstrasse 10, 3800 Interlaken – nice hotel with breakfast however it would be more convenient to stay closer to Interlaken Ost (East) Station if you can afford it lol Day 1 – Interlaken We arrived into Interlaken about 3pm on the train. Beautiful views coming into Interlaken too 😍 (this is obviously…

Few Hours in Geneva

Stay: ibis budget Geneve Palexpo Aeroport We landed in Geneva around 10pm. I booked a hotel right next to the airport so we just walked over… which was a little more complicated than expected as Googlemaps was telling us to walk on a busy highway ramp to cross the street 😂 NO THANKS! Thankfully we…

1 Day in Ljubljana

We arrived in Ljubljana around 6pm. We took showers at the hotel before going out to dinner. Nate found a good burger spot in the old town so we walked about 10minutes to get there (very slowly as my toe is not great)- Pop’s Place. The location was right along the river and super cute!…

2 Days in Istria Region

Stay: Apartments Villa Herak Day 1 – Rovinj & Poreč We left from Piran (Slovenia) around 10am and made our way into Croatia. Although both are in the EU there is still a boarder crossing. Thankfully, it didn’t take us very long to cross, but the opposite direction (going into Slovenia) was packed! We tried…

Predjama Castle, Postojna Caves, & Piran

We left Lake Bled around 10am to start our drive towards the coast. The halfway point was around Predjama Castle/Postojna Caves so we decided to stop and be tourists for a bit! We first went to Predjama Castle. This castle is built into the side of a mountain / cave. The tour was an audioguide…

4 Days in the Julian Alps (& Lake Bled)

Stay: Vila Laura (would recommend!) Day 1 – Lake Bled We left our hotel in Kamnik around 10am and headed over to Lake Bled. The drive took about 40minutes. Since it was too early to check into our B&B, we drove over to a mini viewpoint hike – Mala Osojnica. There was a parking lot…

Kamniško Sedlo

Stay: Guest House Pri Cesarju We arrived in Slovenia around 7pm and ran into a bit of an issue with the rental car…. Nate had reserved it under his name but both his license and international drivers license were expired so they wouldn’t rent him the car. They also couldn’t switch the reservation to my…

2 Days in Barcelona

Stayed: Andante Hotel – while the hotel was really nice and close to the Gothic Quarter it wasn’t on the nicest street. Would recommend to try to stay more on the east side of the Gothic Quarter Day 0 We had a relatively late flight from London and with the time change we didn’t land…

Arundel Day Trip

Went on a quick dad trip with Mom and Dad (Kirsten and Matt not my parents 😂) and baby Bennett! We met at Heathrow to pick up the rental car for the day- the trains for some reason weren’t running so we got a car instead. It took about 1.5hrs to drive down to Arundel….

2 Days in Albufeira

Stay: Sao Rafael Suites – All Inclusive Day 0 Our flight from London left about 5pm. We got our covid test to get into Portugal at the airport so we had to arrive a bit early, but thankfully got our results quickly and could relax in the airport! It was a 3hour flight to Faro,…
