Orihuela Costa and the end of Europe Leg 1

SPAIN | Monday, 15 Jan 2007 | Views [1011]

So I've been here over a week now and Xmas has come and gone.  It's strange to have gone from being completely free and independent to living with your parents - it's lucky we all get on. My plans have already changed, i was pretty sure i was going ... Read more >

This is a great city.  Ive been here before though, and coming to the end of my first 'section' of trip i felt lazy and not in a sightseeing mood.  In fact in the two days i spent here i saw 4 films!  It was great but i got a bit fed up of popcorn so ... Read more >

Naples and Vesuvius

ITALY | Thursday, 14 Dec 2006 | Views [1436] | Comments [1]

It doesn't sound good for Naples - the descriptions are 'dirty' and 'crime ridden'.  Well dirty it definitely is, full of scooters pumping out fumes, rubbish on the streets and grubby grey scenery.  But it has such a vibe, it's bursting with life and ... Read more >

Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi coast

ITALY | Tuesday, 12 Dec 2006 | Views [2412]

It was another spur of the moment things for picking Sorrento - i have no guide book, and i really hadn't had much Internet access.  I'd picked a converted monastery for my digs - good reviews and i could actually afford it.  This is an expensive town.... Read more >

Salerno and Pompei

ITALY | Friday, 8 Dec 2006 | Views [1770]

It was another hour of driving around to find the car hire company and then get myself a train.  I knew i was going to Paulo and from there to Palermo in Sicily.  I know this as i had decided it 3 nights before.  Upon arriving at Paulo i discover that ... Read more >

Cosenza and Cotronei

ITALY | Thursday, 7 Dec 2006 | Views [1561]

When i finally arrive i realise i was right in that i picked a large town (i was hoping for a car hire company).  This place is huge! and dark and deserted and seemingly in the middle of no-where.  i do get a taxi driver who rips me off (the second one ... Read more >

Ferry to Igoumenitsa and then Bari, Bari to Cosenza

ITALY | Wednesday, 6 Dec 2006 | Views [2337]

Its a fairly quick and easy journey to Igoumenitsa on the Greek mainland, but the info i have been given is false again :(  The only ferry tonight is it Bari in Italy, leaving about midnight and arriving at 09.30.  So i take the ferry classed as a student ... Read more >


GREECE | Tuesday, 5 Dec 2006 | Views [986]

So it's only on the morning i take the ferry to Corfu that i FINALLY decide I'm not going to Greece and the islands, i just can't do them justice in the 3 weeks before Xmas and the weather isn't what I'd like.  Instead I'm going to try and get to Spain ... Read more >

Saranda The bus left at 8am, but it was not a great journey.  We passed an accident on the way, a lorry full of wood had gone off the side of the road, and we got their just in time to see all the blood and gore.  The drivers here aren't great - cracked ... Read more >

ALBANIA | Saturday, 2 Dec 2006 | Views [1185]

Berat is described in my guide book as the most beautiful city in Albania...hmmm. The view from the castle above the town is spectacular and from there it certainly could be :) I'm given a warm greeting in my little restaurant/hotel and i instantly ... Read more >


ALBANIA | Friday, 1 Dec 2006 | Views [1170]

Hmmm - I'm now in Albania, what are my expectations?  The guide book suggests little men waving guns...i don't think so.  My first experience however is a very friendly welcome from the only hostel in Albania.  I've spent a few days by myself so I'm ... Read more >

MACEDONIA | Monday, 27 Nov 2006 | Views [944] | Comments [1]

The r is rolled so the place is pronounced more like Orrid - but orrid it isn't, it's lovely, although quite touristy.  Amazingly there is a tourist info at the bus station, although the girl is pretty useless and not pretty and she's wearing sunglasses ... Read more >
