Slovenia is known for its lush forests, nice towns, amazing mountains and landscapes. But few people know that although it has not a lot of sea coast, there is quite a lot of opportunities for (wild) swimming and refreshing during hot summer days. Here are best places to have a dip in Slovenia from our point of view […]

Sweden is a very attractive country. It’s a rich mixture of beautiful cities, history and the landscapes that are wild and diverse, taking in everything from green countryside to never ending, dense forests, black lakes and frozen glaciers. The big cities like Stockholm are really great, but for a truly amazing Swedish experience you have to go to the […]

    Trees Rotteveel - So beautiful! I like all the different colours in the photo and what a peaceful surroundings.ReplyCancel

      Ana - Thanks Trees! We liked the peacefulness here as well. There was nobody than us. You can see all these colours if you visit Scotland in fall. It’s a beautiful time to be there!ReplyCancel

We have to admit that we are quite picky about where and when we would like to go on a journey. Photography is an important part of our life and we try to choose best possible sights on our routes – if possible with as less tourists as possible. 🙂 The best way to explore […]

    Trees Rotteveel - Oh stunning photos and all countries looks nice to visit! What kind of camera do you use? Your son must be lucky to visit so many countries at a young age!ReplyCancel

      Ana - Yes, they are, Trees! Isn’t it great that Europe is so diverse? We love discovering it step by step. 🙂 We use Canon 5D. Traveling makes very good impact on our son. When visiting a new place and meeting local people we try to make him see that things should not be taken for granted. And till now he seems to understand and appreciate it.ReplyCancel

Spain and Portugal are great all year round destinations. But we prefer them in spring or autumn, when the temperatures are ideal (not too hot and still enough warm to swim in the sea). In our 3 weeks road trip to these two amazing countries, rich in history and natural wanders we saw really a lot, but we […]

    Petra - Did you rent the car? Where?

    What are the average camping prices (for 2 people, car, tent).

    Thanks a lotReplyCancel

    • March 9, 2017 - 8:56 am

      Ana - Hi Petra! No, we didn’t rent the car. We had our own car, because we drove all the way from Slovenia (we were on 1 month trip altogether with the driving). The camping prices were 15 – 20 eur for the car and 2 adults, but we were there off season. Cheers!ReplyCancel

      • March 9, 2017 - 12:14 pm

        Petra - Thanks! We didn’t even think of driving ourselves. How long did you need to get to Spain? (I know the Google and ViaMichelin calculations, but with stops and sleeping).

        The only time we can go is in the summer (I can just imagine the heat), but we really want to visit, but the rent-a-car prices are really high, so this might be a great idea.

        Thank you 🙂ReplyCancel

          Jernej - Did a reverse loop a few years back. Took 2 days of driving to get to Vigo. I doubt anyone wants to repeat that on a holiday but that is all the time we had for that particular segment. Temps in July were up to 40 in Granada but were otherwise tolerable since there are many lakes, reservoirs and rivers to swim in. And obviously there’s the sea if you stay on the coast.ReplyCancel

          • March 10, 2017 - 7:27 am

            Ana - Jernej, wow, Vigo is really far! 🙂 But yes, if you are in lack of time, everything is possible. Even driving for so long! I can imagine you had great time once you reached Portugal.

          Ana - It took us a day and a half to reach Valencia. But we took some stops on our way and we slept near the border France – Spain. On our way back from Bilbao it was the same (a day and a half), we slept in Biaritz in France. It’s quite a lot of driving, but it didn’t bothered us. Those places are so gorgeous that you forget the long drive. 😉 With stops on nice places everthing seems closer. 😉ReplyCancel
