Montenegro, Bosnia & Hercegovina

Tiny, winding roads along the bay of Kotor reveal plenty of beautiful towns and spots to go swimming in the calm sea. The hospitality of the people we met in Montenegro and the low amount of tourists compared to the crowded Croatia made this an absolute highlight of our tour. 

Dubrovnik a.k.a King’s Landing

This spring I was on a roadtrip thorugh the Balkans, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Hercegovina. Start and finish was in Dubrovnik so here is a selection of a beautful city, suffering from vast amounts of tourists from all over the world.

Paris…

…no more words needed.

Belém and Sintra

Although taking the tram is quite a popular way of transportation in Lisbon I decided to take a walk from Lisbon all the way to Belém.

Lisbon

Beautiful, charming Lisbon.  I heard lots of positive things about Lisbon before I travelled there myself for the first time but yet I was stunned by Lisbon. The authenticity of the remaining old core of the city with its little districts spread around the hilltops and the river-shore on the South it has all you good wish for and more.

#8 from Bergen back to Oslo via Geilo

The road back to Oslo we followed the beautiful winding roads along the fjords and over the mountains and made a hiking stopover at Geilo. First great picture taking spot was in Undredal to enjoy the stunning view over the Aurlandsfjord.

#7 on road to Bergen

Bergen is always a  great destination to go to so obviously it was part of our roadtrip. Compared to my previous visits I had the fortune to drive to Bergen along the fjords instead of flying in. What a route.

#6 Hiking to Buerbreen Glacier

Fjords, mountains, lakes and of course the sea gives Norway its unique, beautiful landscape. So for our next hiking adventure we decided to something we hadn’t done before and hike up to one of the glaciers; in this case the Buerbreen next to Odda. 

#5 Ferries and tiny mountain roads to Tyssedal

Leaving from Stavanger we headed north taking the ferry over the fjord to Tau.

#4 Crowded Preikestolen

There are probably two world renowned hiking trips in Norway, Preikestolen and Trolltunga. So the shorter trip of the two was also on our list. So we from our base in Stavanger we took the ferry crossing the Lysefjord on the way to the starting point of the 4 hour long hiking tour.

#3 Kristiansand to Stavanger

On the road following the first route recommendation from Kristiansand to Stavanger along the coast and through the Byrkjedal valley. At this point this really was when the landscape started to shape into an amazing collage of lakes, mountains, the sea and an unbelievable blue sky.

#2 – Oslo to Kristiansand

#2 – Oslo to Kristiansand: seemed like a no-brainer that in order to do a roundtrip Oslo – Oslo we somehow had to get to the most southern point of Norway. Unfortunately of all the route recommendations we found there was non that covered the part between those two cities. It seemed like all routes either start from Oslo north- and westbound or from Kristiandsand continuing westwards.
