A Quick Look Back At 2014- Some Travel Highlights of the Past Year

A Quick Look Back At 2014- Some Travel Highlights of the Past Year

Posted from Oslo, Oslo, Norway.

2014 has come and gone and 2015 is now upon us. As we look back on the last year we remember some of our travel highlights.

 

Switzerland

Veysonnaz, Switzerland

We decided to take a road trip across Switzerland on our motorbike. We took a train from Vienna to the border of Austria and Switzerland and then from there took the bike across the tiny country.

Serbia

Serbian Wedding

We were invited to a friend’s wedding in Serbia and in the summer time. We both had not been to Serbia before so we were excited to experience our first serbian wedding. The weather was scorching hot but the country side was beautiful and we had a great time learning all the traditional serbian customs.

Istria,  Croatia

The harbour
Rovinj, Croatia

We took a road trip from Vienna to Croatia in the summer time . We fell in love with this beautiful country. From the food and history to the architecture and natural landscapes- Croatia had it all. We spent our time in the northern region of Istria and we couldn’t help but be reminded of Venice. The north of Croatia used to be owned by the republic of Venice and this was evident as we explored the old streets.

Slovenia

In between Austria and Croatia is Slovenia,  a country we didn’t know much about before hand. We also didn’t realize that Slovenia had a small coastline in between Croatia and Italy. This tiny coastline takes about 20 mins to drive along so in the span of 40 mins you can travel between three countries. Slovenia turned out be a beautiful experience and we hope to visit again (hopefully to Lake Bled).

 

Salzburg,  Austria

Jessica’s dreams came true when we stayed at the Schloss Leopoldskron– also known as the Sound of Music palace. We visited Salzburg in the fall and had the pleasure of staying at the palace hotel for one night. We had been to Salzburg a few times before,  but every time we have visited we are enchanted by the beauty and history of this small Austrian city.

Prague,  Czech Republic

Prague had been on our bucket list for a while so when we had the chance to go we didn’t hesitate. We were lucky to find accommodation right off the Old town square which made our stay that much more enjoyable. Prague is the perfect city to walk around- there are so many tiny streets with interesting shops and restaurants to explore. We were there for three days but soon realized three days was not enough. Such a great European city!

Seattle,  USA

While visiting Jessica’s family in Canada,  we were able to visit Seattle for the weekend. We had been to Seattle two years before and had fond memories of the Pike Place Market,  so we made sure to go back and experience it all over again. Beautiful ocean views,  good food( and coffee of course)and friendly people,  makes this city a special place to visit. Seattle is one of those feel good cities that brings you back again and again.
