Chillin’ in Zadar

Zadar is a coastal city half way up the coast of Croatia. It would be a quiet place were it not for all the tourists, despite it being the end of the holiday season. This city is far more geared up for the summer tourist as apposed to Zagreb, with ice-cream parlors, fast food and restaurants…

Croatian Coast

From Sunj I cycled my way south down the hilly coastline of Croatia. To my left, mountains and to my right, the sea with countless islands. Whoever told me that the road is flat is an idiot. At least I got a fantastic view. A couple of hours down and I reached Prizna where I…

Time to leave Zagreb

So two days here slowly turned into 2 weeks. The staff at City Centre Hostel are so friendly, I’ve met lots of great people and I’ve had such a good time here it’s really hard to leave. It’s been a nice break for me to just chill out for a while, have a few beers…

Zagreb

I love this place. In fact I don’t really want to leave here. Sure, I spend a lot of time feeling like I’m either melting or on fire but it’s definitely worth it. And today, finally, the air conditioning has been fixed in my room and for once I can’t wait to go to bed.…

Budapest to Zagreb

A day of cycling South West from Budapest and you will arrive at lake Balaton, also known as the ‘Hungarian Sea’. At 200km around it’s the largest lake in central Europe and lucky for me has a cycle path the whole way round. A short journey on the South along the waterfront path led me…
