ITALY | Wednesday, 2 Nov 2016 | Views [366]

Our Italian adventure started slowly with our overnight ferry pulling into Brindisi port 2 hours late. Our workaway host was very generous and offered to pick us up from the port but once on the ferry we had no way to contact him to let him know of the ... Read more >

GREECE | Thursday, 27 Oct 2016 | Views [1319]

Our time in Greece was spent in two stages. Our final stop in Bulgaria before heading to Istanbul was Sofia, which meant Thessaloniki in Greece was basically on the way, so we decided to drop by for a few nights before catching our overnight bus to Turkey.... Read more >

We caught an overnight bus from Thessaloniki and arrived in Istanbul at 5am the next morning. We were second guessing our decision to travel to Turkey after realising there was only one other person on the bus.... We had been hearing about all the recent ... Read more >

Bulgaria 27/07/16 - 04/08/16

BULGARIA | Saturday, 10 Sep 2016 | Views [148]

We purchased our train tickets from Bucharest to Veliko Tarnovo, but found out in very broken English that we would need to change trains in a town called Oryahovitsa which was only 15 minutes from our destination. The tickets were in Bulgarian and there ... Read more >


Romania 20/07/16 - 27/07/16

ROMANIA | Tuesday, 6 Sep 2016 | Views [149]

We arrived in Romania via a sleeper train from Budapest to Brasov. While it was not cheap at 65 euro per person, the four of us (Josh, Kan, Leah and I) had a good sleep in our own private compartment. We arrived in Brasov at about 10 am and were met ... Read more >

Slovenia and Hungary 14/7/16 - 19/7/16

SLOVENIA | Friday, 12 Aug 2016 | Views [348]

We arrived in Slovenia by bus from Zagreb to Bled. We immediately noticed the change from Croatia. Slovenia seemed more like Austria or Switzerland with its snow capped alps, green pastures, summer flowers and cute historical villages. We stepped off ... Read more >

CROATIA | Thursday, 11 Aug 2016 | Views [299]

We arrived into Dubrovnik on a short 50 minute flight from Belgrade. Our German-speaking cab driver dropped us as close as he could get to our brand new AirBnB accommodation just outside the old town. Even the 5 minute walk the rest of the way to the ... Read more >

We thought we would never get there but we finally arrived in Belgrade. Our flight from Toronto to Halifax went smoothly, but then we had a 30 hour delay in Halifax, an 8 hour stop over in Frankfurt followed by another few hours flying on to Serbia. ... Read more >

CANADA | Sunday, 31 Jul 2016 | Views [204]

We arrived in Montreal on an overnight bus that brought us from New York. It was a fairly smooth 8 hour journey but we didn't get a lot of sleep so we were excited to be able to check in to our AirBnB condo in Saint Henri early and have a chill day. ... Read more >

We only had a few days in New York as part of a stopover on the way from South America to Europe but we made the most of them. Day 1: slept at an AirBnB in Newark after arriving late in the airport. Lovely place with Danielle as our host. Day 2:... Read more >
