National Park rainforests + waterfalls: Mount Field road trip from Hobart

Known to Tassie locals as simply ‘National Park’, Mount Field is one of those places that has everything a nature lover could wish for. Just before Christmas, I ventured south to Tasmania to visit my family (for the first time in over a year as state borders had been closed for most of 2020!). After being stuck in our small apartment for months...

One day in De Pijp: Amsterdam’s coolest neighbourhood

My last trip to Amsterdam involved staying outside of the tourist district in the trendy area of De Pijp.

Hallstatt stands out in my memory as one of the best places on our itinerary for travel photography, and I have to say, I was glad to have the chance to experience...

Things to do at Lake Bohinj in winter

I think that Lake Bohinj is truly a hidden gem in the Julian Alps. Only 26km/16 mi away from its more popular neighbour Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj sits at the base of a grand valley right next to the stunning Triglav National Park. Though it doesn’t get the same level of visitors as Bled, it easily matches its natural beauty which makes it an even...

Not many people know that Slovenia actually has a tiny slice of coastline. It may only be 47km (29 mi) long, but Slovenia’s Adriatic coast holds some historic and pretty seaside towns. Piran is the most popular for tourists. Held by the Venetians for over 500 years, the town’s buildings reflect centuries of influence making it feel more like...
