Our list of visited Greek islands is still very short, but it is steadily getting longer lately. This time we added Zakynthos, the third largest island in the Ionian Sea, considered one of the most visited tourist destinations in Greece. This holiday was very different, as our one-year-old son Liam joined us on his first trip 😊 yes… it was our first vacation as a family!
Rhodes is one of the most visited and the fourth largest Greek island, offering visitors quite a few beautiful beaches, hidden coves, and some cultural and architectural landmarks from recent as well as slightly more distant history. It is definitely a destination where you can see all the main attractions, due to the relatively short distances in just couple of days and at the same you will still have some time to enjoy sunny weather and lounging on the beach.
Traveling during an »epidemic« is like a bag of surprise, you never know what awaits you. Will the borders be open, what documents will you need to get on board of the plane… and we could list a couple more things. Yes, no one imagined such times even in our wildest dreams. Among the destinations that may be »easier« to access, we chose Spain and their largest and at the same time the most populated island among Canary Islands, Tenerife. Due to all the uncertainties, we bought the plane tickets only 1 week before departure.
Yeah .. we have a video too! And yes, as you can see from the title – it’s Greek, or. Cretan, to be more precise. This trip to Crete was really cool for us, so we need to show you a little more. Borut says that his favorite part is there when he jumps into the pool 😃 ..yes, now we all know that he’s the master of the elegant jump 😃 What do you think?
Despite the fact that the corona virus has already ruined many of our travel plans this year, we still remained optimistic and it was totally worth it! At the last minute we bought a plane tickets and flew to a country we have not been before ☺️ Greece or, to be more precise, to the largest Greek island → Crete.
Due to the uncertain situation, we decided to spend only a week on Crete, which is too little for many (maybe they are even right), but we still saw a lot, and we still had some time for a real summer vacation.
A day trip or just a diversification of a vacation on the Croatian coast? We chose the second option – in principle, a visit to the Krka waterfalls of the Krka National Park is a pretty cool idea in any case. The park is not well known as Plitvice Lakes, so there may also be a chance for less crowding and a much more relaxing and serene visit. But of course, the whole situation depends entirely on the day to day basis.
The entire area of the park covers more than 100 square kilometers, so we suggest that you plan your visit a little in advance and decide what you really want to visit. Would you admire the beautiful nature, especially the waterfalls? Would you rather visit fort and monastery? Would you walk on well-kept wooden paths or would you rather ride a bike or even a boat through the park? You have many options here.
Unfortunately, the corona situation turned our travel plans completely upside down. So, we found the alternative. Where did we go this time? Not too far. As you can already see from the title, we took a super short but well-deserved vacation – we chose the summer classic of most Slovenian families and went to Croatia, more precisely to Biograd na moru. Yes… instead of planned trip to Bali, we went to Biograd – pretty close, both of names starts with B 😃
Istanbul is a city that has a little more than others, with its unique vibe, it attracts many visitors every year who spend just couple of days in the city or even take a longer vacation. Bargaining on stalls, strolling between more or less well-known landmarks and enjoying delicious and especially affordable food – these are just a few reasons why Istanbul is definitely worth a visit.
Forget about the all-inclusive resorts near Mediterranean Sea, Istanbul is the real Turkey you want to discover. The city has a really different but at the same time very interesting vibe, it has cheap and especially good food, a whole lot of sights and numerous markets, where you can find practically everything you want. Istanbul is great for a quick weekend city break or longer vacation.
This time, our trip will be a little different than we are used to, we will visit three continents in ten days! Perhaps at first glance, this really seems like and extremely crowded travel plan, but according to the calculations, this will be a really great daily schedule for us 🙂
In the beginning of June, we will fly with Turkish Airlines from Venice to Seychelles, but we will do a short stop in Istanbul, which lies in both Europe and Asia. The city has as many as 15 million inhabitants and it is the largest city in Europe. There we will certainly be impressed by architecture, which is a mixture of Christian and Muslim origin. Istanbul was in the past a capital of Eastern Roman and also Ottoman empire.
