A Day Visiting Ljubljana, Slovenia

A Day Visiting Ljubljana, Slovenia

My guest house in Ljubljana was just what I needed and after racing to check-in by the deadline, I got comfortable and wrote up Zagreb, the disappointing city that was never going to be good. The next morning after the included breakfast, I stored my bag at the hotel and explored the city centre.

An Afternoon Exploring Zagreb

An Afternoon Exploring Zagreb

Zagreb was a destination I was actively avoiding on this trip as it felt like quite a bland place that was more of a travel hub, not a place worth visiting over passing through.

Four Week Milestone: Day Train from Sibenik to Ljubliana, Slovenia

Four Week Milestone: Day Train from Sibenik to Ljubliana, Slovenia

Unfortunately I didn’t have time for a three week update, but as I reach the halfway point or ‘four week milestone’ of my journey it feels symbolic, and I have a day on the train to contemplate and sleep. Continuing my extended tour of the Balkans, I’m currently heading to the capital of Slovenia. After some initial worry, the trains seem to be better than expected and I must be re-entering a more affluent part of Europe as the trains have precious air-con.

Relaxing Things to do in Sibenik

My two nights in Sibenik started with the realisation I was staying at the cleanest hostel in the world and that here, I had access to a kitchen and a balcony! Stocking up on supplies to make my first meal since I left, I then took an evening stroll into the Old Town and along the harbour and the coast of the Adriatic Sea. As I watched the sunset, I was so relaxed I might as well have been asleep.

Trip to Split, Croatia and My First Opera

Trip to Split, Croatia and My First Opera

Split was where I relaxed properly and had a summer holiday. As I arrived, the coach journey from Sarajevo had been particularly dull and I managed to sleep through most of it but with several pit stops, I took some photos of the great Croatian scenery as we headed through and past Dubrovnik. Very mountainous, the coach journeyed along the water’s edge.
