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…

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…

The Dead Sea & Mount Nebo

After a long half day at Petra, we drove to the Dead Sea (about 3hrs). Along the way we were googling the differences between sea’s and lakes and it turns out the Dead Sea is actually a lake sooooo that’s awkward. We arrived at the Hilton and it was a pretty huge change from our…

Wonder of the world- Petra!

We drove about 2hrs from Wadi Rum and arrived at Petra around 1pm. We decided to do one of the hiking loops to get the good views of The Treasury (most famous Petra site).  To get to Petra you half to walk about a mile after the ticket office, through a siq, before arriving! The…

24hrs in Wadi Rum

I got into Amman late around 11pm and met Jack and Sam at the hotel right by the airport. We woke up bright and early to get 6am breakfast and go pick up our rental car at the airport. By 7am we were on our way for our 3.5hr journey to Wadi Rum! On the…

Mostar

Our only plan for the day was to drive from Sibenik to Mostar to Dubrovnik so we had a lazy morning and headed out around 11am. It took about 2.5hrs to drive to Mostar (which is in Bosnia and Herzegovina). When we parked in a seemingly free parking spot some random guy apparently was monitoring…

Plitvice National Park

OMG. There was a cricket in our little house and it was SO ANNOYING. Thankfully, I always have my earplugs with me but it was still so freaking annoying. We woke up at 6am to get ready and head over to the park by 7am. Unfortunately for us, the weather man in Croatia was very…

Krka National Park

Out Airbnb was only about 5minutes away from the Krka national park. We decided to arrive at 8am (when the park opened) to avoid extra tourists. We were able to get our tickets within a few minutes of arriving and got on the bus to the Skradinski Buk (the main waterfall at the park). It…

1 Day in Split

There were some wild storms overnight in Split. When we woke up we ended up chilling for awhile and watched ‘Falling Inn Love’ on Netflix. It was supposed to take place in New Zealand, but they all sounded Australian lol. Once we finally were motivated, we headed out to Old Town Split. Turned out it…

Dubrovnik Day 2

We had booked a kayaking tour for the morning and headed out around 9am to meet the guide. The tour was 3hrs. We paddled out to the island of Lokrum, then over to a beach cave for some snorkeling. Our guides were hilarious. Really enjoyed the tour mostly because of them. (We booked our tour…

Kotor

After some advice from the front desk to get to Montengro early to avoid traffic at the boarder, we got up about 6:45am, got ready, had breakfast, and were on our way! It only actually took like 40minutes to get to the boarder. It’s actually super close to the Dubrovnik airport. There was only like…
