Kastoria, a gem nestled between lake and mountains – Greece

When going on a journey you come to create bonds. That’s why we were really happy to meet again Stefano, an Italian backpacker, when we were about to cross the Greek border in the south of Albania. Catching up, tips and long discussions: that’s how we added Kastoria to our list of things to see in Greece, on his advice. And he was right: nestled between lake and mountains, Kastoria is a really refreshing stopover to discover in northern Greece!

In the Ancient Greece footsteps – Greece

We have already been asked why we chose to go through Greece on our journey: apart from the sun and the Greek islands, we wanted to travel through ancient Greece, the one that made us dream so much through our history books! And we were not disappointed: Delphi, Corinth, Athens, Epidaurus… The wonder was there, thanks to the architectural masterpieces, monumental remains left by a great civilization that ruled 3000 years ago.

The upstanding Meteora monasteries – Greece

As soon as we crossed the Greek border, we asked what else we could visit except ancient Greek sites and the famous Greek islands: we were then strongly recommended Meteora, those monasteries upstanding on top of very steep rocky cliffs… And even if we had already visited several Orthodox monasteries in Serbia and Kosovo, we let ourselves be tempted by those completely unusual Greek monasteries!

Discovering Mostar and its surroundings – Bosnia and Herzegovina

By visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina you will find yourself in a country of great contrasts, marked by its History, with an incredible diversity… of which the city of Mostar is a perfect example! As for us, we loved walking through Mostar streets, discovering its past, relaxing on the banks of Neretva river… Let’s come back on this discovery!

The Croatian peninsula, from Orebic to Korcula – Croatia

There are so many islands and islets in Croatia: say in a simple way, choice for visiting are endless! And to have visited some of them, we have to say that Croatian islands are all appealing… Choice is going to be difficult! For us, the opportunity to put our bags down in Orebic led us to visit the Peljesac peninsula and Korcula island. This small detour in our route plan was well worth it: a quieter destination, but just as fantastic!

Discovering the Dalmatian coast, from Sibenik to Dubrovnik – Croatia

During our Croatian journey, it was impossible for us to miss the Dalmatian coast and its beautiful cities such as Zadar, Sibenik, Split, Ston (and Mali Ston) nor to avoid the must-see Dubrovnik, made famous thanks to the cinematic art. If we didn’t have the opportunity to visit Zadar and its famous sea organ, we could really enjoy our trip along the Adriatic Sea!

Hiking trail 360, from Tivat to Kotor – Montenegro

If we chose to name ourselves “Serial Hikers”, it’s because we like to hike whenever we can! So, when we stayed in Tivat, we naturally chose to visit Kotor bay by undertaking the 360-degree hiking trail that connects the cities of Tivat and Kotor through mountain ridges… Nothing better to admire a 360° panorama between bay and sea!

The skeletons church – Slovenia

After a day’s walk in the countryside of south-western Slovenia, we met funny tourists on our way! They were looking for a church called “the Holy Trinity”, whose walls would be painted with skeletons… Intrigued, we followed them in their quest and ended our route in Hrastovlje, a small village nestled at the bottom of a valley…

The railway bridge that has been destroyed three times – Bosnia and Herzegovina

On our way between Mostar and Sarajevo, our driver dropped us off in Jablanica – before leaving on his own. It was noon, lunch break: we decided to take advantage of this stop between two lifts to have a picnic. With a large loaf of bread and a jar of Ajvar, we headed towards the beautiful turquoise blue river Neretva to enjoy the view it offered us… And there, surprise! We found ourselves in front of a destroyed and partly submerged railway bridge!
