Rainy day highlights in southern Dalmatia

CROATIA | Saturday, 17 Nov 2018 | Views [37]

Perhaps what I will remember most of visiting these places with my Colorado friend is talking at cafes and restaurants down narrow cobblestone streets while waiting for better weather, and alternately being soaked by the rain. Out of about 7 days we ... Read more >

Hvar: Biking, Fortresses and Food

CROATIA | Thursday, 8 Nov 2018 | Views [51]

Over my first week in Croatia I endeavored to learn words in the local language such as “Thank you,” “Excuse me, do you speak English?” and “Good day”. In Croatian “hv” is pronounced somewhere between a ... Read more >

Plitvice: Land of the falling lakes

CROATIA | Tuesday, 30 Oct 2018 | Views [62]

It was this place that first captured my interest. It is the reason I know where Croatia is. The highlight of this place is simply, or incredibly the lakes. It’s hard to put into words what a photo can say, and even then it’s hard to truly ... Read more >

Highlights from Rovinj

CROATIA | Friday, 26 Oct 2018 | Views [66]

Rovinj is the perfect location for an unplanned day of simply wandering up and down the beautiful streets, which are spotlessly clean. The pale stones also shine from the thousands of feet that have passed over it. Perhaps because I live so far from ... Read more >

Bergen: Home of the Hanseatic League

NORWAY | Sunday, 21 Oct 2018 | Views [61]

As my train pulled into Bergen I realized my phone, which I was relying on for a map to where I was staying, was dangerously low on battery. I started off, and before long, though not without ascending one of Bergen’s steep hills, realized that ... Read more >

Fjord Country

NORWAY | Friday, 19 Oct 2018 | Views [55]

After trying and failing to stay entirely awake on the 6:25 am train out of Oslo my friend and I revived for the most impressive scenery passing the train windows as we climbed higher into the mountains. As we approached approximately 4,000 feet above ... Read more >

36 hours in Oslo

NORWAY | Saturday, 13 Oct 2018 | Views [57]

Such a short time for a city with so much to do, namely so many museums! After taking an hour to relax at our airbnb and getting to know the friendly kitten sized cat that came with it we headed out to explore a piece of Oslo. Perhaps the best moments ... Read more >

Setting Sail in Stockholm

SWEDEN | Thursday, 20 Sep 2018 | Views [68]

One benefit to catching up with yourself a few weeks on is perhaps that it’s easier to pick the most memorable pieces of each stop to share rather than every detail as it still shines clearly in your mind. Then again what could be said in a few ... Read more >

Sweden's Old Capital: Kalmar

SWEDEN | Saturday, 8 Sep 2018 | Views [73]

Back in the day, as in the 16th Century, capitals weren’t stationary cities where the business of the country happened, but rather wherever the monarch happened to be. In those days Sweden’s kings spent considerable time in Kalmar, which ... Read more >

On an island in Denmark

DENMARK | Saturday, 25 Aug 2018 | Views [51]

A couple train rides and a ferry away from Copenhagen is the Danish village of Aeroskobing on the island of Aero. Fires seem to have been common in the 17th century (and earlier). Aeroskobing was no an exception; all of the village but two houses burned ... Read more >

Copenhagen

DENMARK | Monday, 20 Aug 2018 | Views [66]

Like all cities there are certain similarities wherever they are; the hustle and bustle of daily life as thousands of people go about their business, even as you set out to explore the place with new eyes. In Copenhagen I learned to look left and right ... Read more >
