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. My opinion today isn’t much different after visiting, not helped by the cold and rain that cast a gloomy mood over the Croatian capital.

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.

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.

This beautiful city is the largest and capital of Bosnia, infamous for the shooting of Franz Ferdinand which contributed to the start of the first world war, and for a bloody siege taking place very recently, 1992-1995.

A Serbian City: What to do in Belgrade

Belgrade isn’t a destination you go to without some sort of preconception, perhaps that it won’t be modern or that it won’t feel safe to walk around alone. Turns out both are wrong and it’s a very aesthetically pleasing city.
