Back in 2013, we explored this incredible region on a tour with Intrepid The trip took us from Budapest down to Bosnia & Herzegovina, eventually passing through Montenegro before ending along the coast of Croatia.
And although Hungary isn't part of the Balkans, it was on this journey we found a love for Hungarian Goulash!
From Ostrava, we explored some of the countryside of the Eastern Czech Republic; specifically the Moravian-Silesian region, with beautiful mountains and fascinating history. We also had the chance to experience some Czech hospitality, with a stay in the Koprivna Resort and the spectacular Miura Hotel.
IcelandMenningarnott is the celebration of Iceland. It’s the biggest festival of the year. During our three-week road trip around the country in 2014, we had the chance to experience Iceland’s Menningarnott festival first hand!
This was an interesting experience, the first bit anyway. It was the beginning of our first journey through Europe, and it started in Rome. Due to a debilitating bout of jet lag and one of the biggest travel mistakes we’d ever made, our first impressions of Rome were less than satisfactory.
Thankfully, after a few hectic days, we crossed the Tyrrhenian Sea and spent the next two weeks on the island of Sardinia. A place that would become one of our favourite destinations on the planet!
PolandPoland is a country with a fascinating and intense history as well as a phenomenal — yet often underrated — food scene. Get some inspiration for a visit to Warsaw, one of Poland’s must-visit cities. And check back soon, because we have several more posts coming out in the near future!
SlovakiaAs we only had one week to pass through Slovakia, we spent our entire time in the capital city. Unfortunately, as alluring as this old city may be, we should have had a better time in Bratislava.
