A City of Moments: Exploring Vienna

Vienna. It’s hard not to romanticise this iconic symbol of European imperial grandeur. I can see why so many before me have fallen in love with Vienna. Gorgeous cafés, exquisite architecture, and an impressive history are all brought together in this European capital. I wanted to find the imperial grandeur …

Zagreb: Croatia’s Final Surprise

Our final destination in Croatia was Zagreb. I hadn’t really put much thought into this decision. It made sense to spend some time in the capital of the country, but otherwise Zagreb had never crossed my travel radar. I was disappointed to be leaving Split so soon since the constant …

Split, Croatia

Croatia seemed to be bursting with dreamlike walled cities at this point. The city of Split felt slightly more urban than Dubrovnik. Here the walled palace seemed to be only a single part of the city as a whole. That being said, the white stone buildings within the walls had a few new surprises, including an underground market. Apparently, back in the day the Roman Emperor could walk straight off his boat and into his palace without stepping foot outside (thanks to higher sea levels and some pretty handy city planning).

Despite our awesome surroundings, our luck had run out in regards to the weather. Constant rain hampered our attempts to sight-see, but I was determined to make it to all of the major spots. One afternoon Dev and I walked up Marjan Hill to the viewpoint where this photo was taken. The walk was quite easy, and there were several houses located on the path up the hill. It was a really cool area. The rain stopped for a few minutes, so I was able to snap a few photos on Dev’s phone. There was actually a café at the lookout point and an entire park beyond that, but we decided to head back to our warm beds rather than brave the wind and rain more than was necessary.

‘So This One Time We Found Nature’ and Other Adventures in Interlaken, Switzerland

Holy moly, guys. I knew that Switzerland was beautiful, but Interlaken takes it to another level. Between the misty mountains, the electric blue lakes, the moody forests, and the postcard-perfect Swiss towns, the Jungfrau region absolutely kills it. I swear it felt like we fell into a storybook. We were only there …

Day-Tripping in Trier, Germany

A few days into our stay in Luxembourg, I convinced Devon that it would be fun to hop over the border into Germany for a quick day trip. Only an hour from Luxembourg by train awaits the ancient city of Trier. Once the western capital of the Roman Empire, Trier …
