4 Days in Jersey (UK)

Stay: Apollo Hotel – good for the price. Pretty close to the main bus station in St. Helier (10min walk). Only issue was the hotel was not built for the crazy winds so it got pretty cold in the rooms at night! Day 1 – St. Helier So this was a pretty last minute trip…

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…

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…

2.5 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…

Quilotoa Lake

Only one plan for the day- Quilotoa Lake! It was about 1.5hr drive from Latacunga. Had a bit of a late start so we ended up getting to the lake at 11:30. It was only $2 per person to get into the Lake area and parking was pretty simple! There was a free bathroom in…

Two days in Quito

We arrived in Quito at about 2am and had a quick medical check to make sure we had our negative covid test / didn’t have a temperature. We made it out of the airport in about 30minutes! Our hotel was only about 5minutes from the airport so thankfully we were asleep not too long after…

Peak District

Dolomites – Tre Cime & Forestis Hotel

Today was the day we finally got to stay in our fancy hotel! But first we wanted to get in a hike around Tre Cime since it is one of the most popular mountain ranges in the Dolomites. We arrived to the Tre Cime area around 9:30 to find (once again) the parking near the…

Dolomites – Seceda

Another early morning to get up and go hiking! Seceda is probably one of the most insta-worthy places in the Dolomites so we picked a day of the week with good weather to go visit- and wow it was amazing!We took the cable car from the town up to Seceda, which took around 25minutes (and…
