Europe

Europe is blessed with having dozens of diverse nations, cultures, architectural styles and types of cuisine, all crammed into a (relatively) small space. Travelling around the continent is a breeze and while it’s not the cheapest place to travel (it’s more expensive the further west you go), it’s definitely worth every penny.

Making The Most Of Santorini

Sunsets & Side Trips: Making The Most Of Santorini

All of the romantic visions that you have of Santorini are true. Cycladic style houses, castles and churches cling to a rocky Greek island volcano caldera, their whitewashed facades and powder-blue roofs offering a lovely contrast to the azure sky and the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, some 300 meters below. Santorini is everything you would hope ...
Cruising Crete By Car: 5 Must-See Stops

Athens, Santorini & Crete – Our Big, Fat, Greek Vacation!

Yerevan, Armenia - A Budget Backpacking Couple In The Caucasus

Yerevan, Armenia – A Budget Backpacking Couple In The Caucasus

After 5 great nights in Tbilisi, a beautiful city well suited for backpackers, we hopped on another bus and headed to the neighbouring country of Armenia, to the capital of Yerevan, which is a great digital nomad destination.  The bus ride there was ridiculous and the driver was a madman.  I was feeling car sick ...

Tbilisi, Georgia – A Quick Trip Through The Caucasus Countries

After being in Turkey for four weeks we thought we’d switch it up a bit and head further East into the neighbouring country of Georgia-one of the three Caucasus countries (Armenia and Azerbaijan are the other two).
