Concrete Antics – Slovakia

I close my eyes and see many shades of grey, cement, broken sidewalks and stone everywhere; yet I feel a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. These are the two impressions I am left with after my days in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. The monotonous scenery is a lasting result from […]

Kayaks and Castles

Many people hit Prague in Czech Republic and move on – this is a BIG mistake. A bus ride a few hours south, for just €7.75 you can relax and enjoy the beautiful UNESCO Heritage site of Český Krumlov.  Known for its 13th Century Castle and situated along the Vltava River, this town looks straight out […]

Massively pushing my decision to visit Edinburgh was to meet up with my friend Ian, whom I met at a surf trip in France earlier in 2016.  His grandmother lives in Buckstone, just outside of the city proper and the two of them graciously hosted me for the weekend. Her home is filled with family photos […]
