Croatia

My time in Croatia was one of the most memorable weeks of my time in Europe. Gorgeous mountains plunging into a sea so clear that you could see just as well underneath it as above it, well-preserved medieval towns to wander through, and a crazy nightclub scene all make this a country well worth visiting.


Avoiding Game of Thrones Withdrawal In King’s Landing (Err…Dubrovnik)

Despite the fact that Dubrovnik was not actually used in season 1 of Game of Thrones–the King’s Landing that Ned Stark saw then was actually Malta–it’s still the most recognised location on the show.
