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,…

Porto Rafti

I had a full day in Greece by myself! (Nate left in the morning and my flight wasn’t until 8pm). I’ve already been to Athens so I decided to spend my day relaxing at the beach! A girl I played volleyball with in London is from Athens and recommended Porto Rafti for a nice beach…

2.5 Days in Santorini

Stay: Prime Suites, Oia (would not recommend) Day 0.5 Our ferry was supposed to leave Paros around 11am, however there was a strike that morning so it was 2hrs delayed! Unforunately, we were not made aware of the delay until we went and asked someone where the ferry was. If we’d known we could’ve tried…

2.5 Days in Paros

Stay: Sunset View Hotel Day 0.5 We arrived in Paros around 7pm. Our hotel was a little less than a mile from town, but took a bit longer to walk because we had our bags with us! The hotel is very nice though and has a great view of the sunset. We almost went into…

3 Days in Mykonos

Stayed: Constantina Zorz Xydakis (definitely recommend!) Day 1 We left Athens on an early ferry (7am). Thankfully we had no issues finding the boat so we boarded with plenty of time. The ferry ride was 2hrs 35mins so at 9:20 people started getting up to get off the ferry. Naturally we joined and disembarked the…
