A Day Trip to Krka National Park, Croatia

A few years ago, I road tripped around Croatia from Zagreb down to Dubrovnik, stopping at Plitvice National Park. It was out of season, incredibly empty and felt like our own personal paradise; walking along the boardwalks and bending down to admire all the little fish. The only thing that was missing in this, was … Continue reading A Day Trip to Krka National Park, Croatia

OVERVIEW | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

In April of this year, my friend Hamilton and I went on a road trip around Latvia and Estonia (well one place in Latvia and a bunch of places in Estonia). I've done individual posts on each day of the trip but figured it might be helpful to do an overview of the entire route. … Continue reading OVERVIEW | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

WALKING IN ESTONIA| DAY 3 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

And on the third day, our two faithful heroes woke up in their dollhouse style apartment in Tartu, ready for a day of bog walking in multiple locations around Estonia. They would like every day to be like this because it was a very special one. A very special one indeed. For real though, this … Continue reading WALKING IN ESTONIA| DAY 3 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

A RAINY WEEKEND | THE LAKE DISTRICT | WEEKEND WANDERING

The Lake District is a gorgeous National Park in Northwestern England, home to (surprise surprise) beautiful lakes, lovely walks and plenty of activities for the whole family.

3 BORDER CROSSINGS, 2 DOLLARS AND 1 RAINBOW | DEARBORN TO TORONTO | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After a morning of Ford filled fun, we continued our travels eastward, to Niagara Falls, ready to drop the car back and then get ourselves to Toronto.

Happy Travel Tuesday! Today I'd like to present the newest in our series of vlogs produced during our USA / Canadian Road Trip. This one takes place during our journey between Shenandoah Valley, to Great Smokies National Park. We did a quiz, sang some songs, and saw some foam. The usual. It'd mean a lot … Continue reading FOAMHENGE | GREAT SMOKIES | VLOG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

THE FIRST LINCOLN MEMORIAL | THE RUSSIAN DOLL OF ATTRACTIONS | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Roadside attractions played a big role in our lust for road-tripping the US of A; at this point, we had already hit up Dinosaur Land and Foamhenge. Neither disappointed.   I didn’t have quite the same faith in the next one, but I was willing to be pleasantly surprised… Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace. (Not quite an … Continue reading THE FIRST LINCOLN MEMORIAL | THE RUSSIAN DOLL OF ATTRACTIONS | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After an early morning filled with the excitement of picking up our rental car and entering a land of dinosaurs, you might think it was about time for a rest. Nope, instead we did the exact opposite; after checking in to Skyland and getting changed, we went for a long ol' hike. Rose River Falls  … Continue reading HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

WASHINGTON DC TO SHENANDOAH NP | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

The fourth day of our trip came around incredibly quickly; we’d spent a solid weekend in DC, and had a lot of fun, but we were ready to pick up the car to hit the road. At 8am sharp we left the hotel, which wasn’t the easiest seeing as we were still marginally jet lagged … Continue reading WASHINGTON DC TO SHENANDOAH NP | USA ROAD TRIP 2016
