A weekend is never enough time to experience a city, but sometimes life gets in the way of letting us jet off to a new country. Rome is a city that you could easily spend months in, wandering through the ancient ruins, stopping at each gelato shop to sample every flavor; but for those of us that can’t live the jet-setter lifestyle, Rome is a city that can be discovered in a weekend; crunch time.
Croatia should be one everyone’s bucket list and not just for the Yacht Parties and the perfect blue waters. Croatia is a land straight out of Game of Thrones (literally, parts were filmed there); filled with medieval history, intricate architecture, and jaw-dropping nature and scenery. If you have the time, expenses and patience the best way to see Croatia is a classic ROOOAD TRIP through the country. That is what my sister and I did during our European Summer Adventure together in 2016. There were certain parts of Croatia we opted out of and do an unforeseen incident (which resulted in taking the backroads from city to city) and instead of a famous population destination we chose to cross borders and check out a lesser known city.
A day trip to the three islands next to Venice: Murano, Torcello and Burano.
Venice was built on pillars which have been slooowly sinking down into the Adriatic Sea. Sadly, it is continuing to sink and soon enough it will become the city underwater. So if you ever needed a nudge to explore this breathtaking city, do it now otherwise you’ll have to get scuba certified in order to explore it.
