When we’re planning an itinerary for a new destination, we want a good mix of sights and activities, and an opportunity to taste the local food and experience the local culture. But at the base of it all, we want to capture some kick-ass photos of the place we’re visiting. We want a way of […]
Originally this post was going to be entitled “Roadtripping Georgia: A 10-day Itinerary.” Before travelling to Georgia I spent countless evenings playing around with various different routes on Google Maps, in order to formulate the perfect road trip itinerary. I thoroughly researched all the destinations I had on my shortlist, the travel distances involved to […]
On our third full day in Tbilisi the plan had originally been to catch a marshrutka (local minibus) out to Georgia’s old capital – Mtskheta. We would travel to Signaghi via Davit Gareja once we’d picked up the car. However, we never did pick up the car. In fact we cancelled our reservation just over […]

Located approximately 50 kilometres northwest of Girona, in the midst of the Pyrenean foothills and at the heart of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, Olot makes a great base from which to explore the surrounding area, as well as being a historic, […]
If you’ve read last week’s post you’ll know that Besalú was one of the towns in which I based myself whilst completing my three-day hike through Catalonia. Located on the edge of the volcanic zone of La Garrotxa Nature Park and just 35 kilometres from Girona, Besalú is one of Catalonia’s best preserved medieval towns. […]
