Dolomites – Alpe Di Suisi

The forecast for the day said nice morning with a rainy afternoon so we woke up early again and made our way to the Mont Seuc cable car that was about a mile from our airbnb. The nice thing about hiking in the Dolomites is that there are a ton of cable cars so you…

Dolomites – Lago Di Carezza

We woke up early to drive the rest of the way to the Dolomites. Our airbnb was a mini farm and the lady offered to bring by some freshly squeezed milk straight from the cow! I usually drink skim milk so wasn’t sure if I would like it, but it almost tasted like a melted…

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, & Italy

Well it’s not every day that you are in 5 countries in one day. But today was that day! We started the morning by driving to meet with Nate’s friend from college who lives in Southern Germany- Luis. We met at some waterfall area called Stuibenfall in Northern Austria. It was a bunch of mini…

Fussen

We arrived in Munich around 10pm, drove about an hour then crashed for the night. Our plan for the day was to drive to Fussen and hike around Neuschwanstein Castle (famous for being the inspiration for the Disney castle). Before driving too far, we stopped in a random town to have breakfast at a little…

Robben Island

We pre booked tickets online for a tour of Robben Island. We met at the ferry docks about 9am and it took around 30minutes to get out to the island. Once there, we were loaded onto a few different buses to take us around the Island. The first stop was at the main prison. We…

Cheetah Sanctuary & Lion’s Head

Last morning in South Africa for Jess ☹ thankfully the rest of us have two more days! We decided to go check out the Cheetah Sanctuary that we had been told about by one of the girls on our garden route tour. The sanctuary was created to help raise money for the Anatolian dog breeding…

Table Mountain

We got picked up nice and early at 5:30am to head over and start our hike up Table Mountain. We decided to hike the India Venster route and were told to get a guide for safety purposes. The hike started off just before the sun started to rise so it was pretty dark and needed…

5 Day Garden Route Tour

Day 1 We got picked up for our Garden Route tour at 6:40am and proceeded to drive for 6hrs (with some breaks obviously) until lunch. Lunch was at Mossle Bay, a little beach town (super windy though so it was pretty cold if you weren’t in the sun) It took about another 30minutes to get…

Capetown

Day 1 We landed at 10am in a beautiful 70 degrees and sunny Capetown after a 12hour flight. It took around 40minutes to uber to our Airbnb. We relaxed for about 3minutes before throwing our suits on and heading to the beach! While walking we passed this outdoor public pool area which only cost like…

Ice Romania

Our flight to Romania wasn’t too late from London, but we lost 2hrs on the way there so we didn’t arrive until about 2am! Couldn’t see much when we got to our Airbnb, but the next morning we got to see the really cute street! After spending the night in Sibiu, we started our drive…

2 Days in Stockholm

Alyssa and I had a late flight out of London. I had realized earlier in the day that the airport we were arriving to in Stockholm was actually 60MILES away from Stockholm. Someone please inform me how they are allowed to classify that as “Stockholm”. Thankfully, the commuter bus into the city waited for our…

3 Days in Lisbon

We arrived in Lisbon around 9pm, got into our Airbnb, then went to a place for dinner which serves canned fish. Weird I know, but apparently that’s like a thing in Lisbon. They also give it to you on a plate so it’s not as weird. Had a fishing pole for the menu! Day 1…
