    30 of the Most Beautiful Waterfalls in Europe

    Waterfalls are one of the things we always have to stop for on our road trips. I just love seeing waterfalls. Luckily there are lots of waterfalls in Europe and I haven’t seen all of them yet. I’ve asked fellow travel bloggers to name the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe. We’ve collected 30 of them here. Waterfalls in Europe Plitvice Lakes, Croatia Contributed by Cosette from KarsTravels. The Plitvice Lakes in Croatia are travertine waterfalls. There are over 90 waterfalls in total between the 16 lakes. During thousands of years the Korana river flowed and deposited, which formed dams of travertine. These formed the lakes, grottos and waterfalls we see…

    A day in Dubrovnik

    Dubrovnik is a city crowded with tourists, and this is understandable: it’s a beautiful city well worth your time. We visited Dubrovnik as part of our European roadtrip in 2016 and spent one day in Duvbrovnik. In one day you can see the highlights of Dubrovnik, but you could easily spend more time in Dubrovnik. What to visit on a day in Dubrovnik With one day in Dubrovnik you start by walking on the medieval walls of the city. Then explore the inner city; admire the Onofrio fountain and stroll over the stradun. Below I will elaborate further on these things, first some background on Dubrovnik.

    An afternoon in Zagreb

    We only spent one afternoon in Zagreb, but loved the inner city. We have to go back someday to explore more of this beautiful city. It doesn’t have the laid-back vibe Ljubljana has, but it has it’s own old city with surprises around corners vibe. Arrive by train for an afternoon in Zagreb We pitched our tent on a campsite on the outskirts of Zagreb. We went into the city center by train. Which is a perfect way to arrive in the city. First you see all those gray monoliths, colossal buildings housing people. This gave the idea of a gray, boring city. But this isn’t the way the city…

    2018 travels in review

    2020 has already started, and we already made some trips. But in this post I want to take you back to 2018. We did a lot of trips, mostly in The Netherlands. It wasn’t the easiest year for us, but we got through it and we were still able to travel. Here are our 2018 travels per month. January A quiet month, we only took 3 trips. With Yuri’s class we went to castle de Haar and had a guided tour here. It was fun and informative. On a good level the kids learned a lot about how the owners have lived in the castle over the centuries. We went…

    Campsites in Croatia with kids

    In 2016 and 2017 we spent the Summer roadtripping in Europe, especially The Balkan. The first year we camped most of the time, in 2017 a little less, mainly because of the weather. In the south it was too hot to pitch a tent, let alone sleep in it with 40+ degrees Celsius temperatures. In 2016 it was our first time roadtripping with a tent. We did it again in 2017, you can say it’s something we love to do as a family. Why, well lot’s of time spent outdoors and in addition friends for Yuri, and a layed back vibe. One of the countries we did a lot of…
