Zagreb – Slovenia/Croatia Road Trip: Part 3

zagreb croatia trip journey travel 2017

We rolled into Zagreb train station early evening and decided to walk rather than taxi to our latest Airbnb accommodation.
Good thing we did!

Zagreb is extremely easy on the eye.

We immediately passed through a beautiful green public square, before turning on to a broad, attractive, tree-lined street which led all the way to our apartment.

In the more touristy parts of Croatia, such as Split and Dubrovnik you don’t find much of a difference between the price of a similar apartment in a Western European city.

Our thought was that we would be so exhausted from the build-up to the wedding and the day itself that we wouldn’t have much energy to explore somewhere new.

Instead, we made an agreement that we would have a proper holiday a few months down the line where we could throw ourselves into a real adventure.Continue Reading

The 7 Most Outstanding Tree House Hotels in the World

cool best tree house hotel holidays vacations resorts cabins for rent 2017

There is no one who hasn’t dreamed of staying in a treehouse at some point in their lives.

These dreams were often born in childhood as we pored over tales of Rivendell in Middle Earth or followed the adventures of Robinson Crusoe.

There were only two types of kids at school: the ones who had treehouses and the ones who wanted treehouses, but these aspirations seem to fade in adulthood.

This can be attributed in part to the tourism industry that has been keeping us focused on beach resorts, plush hotels and WiFi facilities but also to the growing pressures of modern day life making us forget about the beauty of nature that is there for us all to enjoy.Continue Reading
