Plitvice Lakes In Pictures And Video

Located in the mountainous Karst region in Croatia, it's known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. When we visited this park it was lush and green. The sound of the rushing water, rolling down the hills into the many lakes, filled the air. Walking through the park on the elevated wooden footbridges made the experience even more special. It was incredible to see so many heavenly waterfalls in one place.

Plan The Perfect Croatian Holiday

When I started my sabbatical, Croatia wasn't a country that was high on my must-visit list. After 10 glorious days (road-tripping with my brother and his finance), I was shocked to discover that Croatia had completely stolen my heart. I was left wanting more; yearning to spend more time basking under Croatia's warm sun, lazing on its beaches, getting lost in its incredible nature and sampling its heavenly food.

To help you make the most of your time in Croatia, I've prepared a 10 day itinerary featuring some of my favorite highlights from my trip here.

Switzerland Itinerary

There's few places on this planet where the advertising fails to do the country justice. Prior to coming Switzerland, I'd seen the ads showing the stunning snow capped mountains, idyllic green meadows and awe inspiring waterfalls. Now that I've experienced them in person, I can say the ads lied.

Switzerland's nature is more beautiful, soul nourishing and humbling than any picture could hope to capture.

Writing a two week itinerary for any country is always tricky. It means you'll only get a taste of what a destination has to offer, and you won't see everything. In Switzerland's case, it's doubly tricky.

It has two primary tourist seasons, the winter for skiing and summer for hiking. My itinerary will focus on the summer and explores the big cities, outdoors and some of the smaller towns.

A Guide to David Cerny’s Statues – Prague’s Banksy

David Cerny is the original Banksy. A daring, controversial and artistic trailblazer. His work is designed to provoke a reaction, force you to think and sometimes brazenly pushes political statements. In fact, he garnered infamy with his first piece "Pink Tank".

He managed to get a hold of a WWII Soviet tank, painted it pink and then placed a giant middle finger on it. It resulted in him getting arrested. There's nothing subtle about Cerny's work.

Over the years, his statues have become part of the city's landscape. Below is my guide to David Cerny's statues.

48 Hours In Siem Reap

Most people know Siem Reap as the gateway to the amazing Angkor Temples. Monuments that, in my mind, tower over all the World Wonders. With the influx of tourists doing their pilgrimage to these temples, Siem Reap has grown into a cool hip town; offering plenty of interesting markets and an impressive night life.

Below is my 2 day guide to Siem Reap. During the day, most of your time will be spent exploring the temples, while in the evening you'll cover Siem Reap.

24 Hours In Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is an interesting city. It challenges you to look past its dark history and to see it for what it is today, a city reborn from the ashes of destruction. Even if you only have a day to explore, you'll see that its present, past and future are very much intertwined.

You'll be knocked back by the chaotic activity in its streets, savor local Khmer dishes, marvel at the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda's beauty and mourn at the mass graves of countless victims who were savagely murdered by the Khmer Rouge.

Phnom Penh offers you a window into one of the darkest periods of modern history, rivaling (if not exceeding) the horrors of the Holocaust. Yet, its booming growth is proof that hope can't be killed.

This is my guide to Phnom Penh in 24 hours.
