Planning a family trip in Scotland for an Easter weekend break turned out to be more challenging than usual. All the hotels were either too expensive, sold out or didn’t have onsite parking. Trying to find a quality airbnb was just as hopeless. Determined to find a good deal, I’ve finally came across Chapel Cross Guesthouse, located just outside of Edinburgh. In the small village where a popular movie was filmed! The hotel was everything I was looking for!

From a beach bum to a hike addict. I didn’t realise hiking was growing on me so much. Lying on the beach while drinking piña colada – that always sounded like a perfect holiday to me. Who’d rather prefer to go up the hill for several hours while struggling to catch a breath? Certainly, not me! I could barely last half an hour on the treadmill! Until my recent visit to Norway where I hiked Pulpit Rock. After that, I was hooked. Determined to climb the mountain peaks wherever I travel now, I compelled this list of the best hikes in Europe.
Warning! Best hikes in Europe list will give you some serious wanderlust.
After doing a very brief research (google images) on the things to do in Stavanger and seeing all the amazing pictures of the cliffs; I just knew I had to do them! A long weekend in Stavanger seemed like enough time for a hike or two. Preikestolen or also called the Pulpit Rock was the closest one.
A 604 meters high steep cliff formed by melting glaciers at the end of the Ice Age. Now, claimed to be one of the Norway’s most famous mountain hikes. Unsurprisingly, as it offers a truly breathtaking view over the Lysefjord. Mother nature, I bow to you.
They say the way you spend New Year’s eve is the same way you’ll spend the rest of the year. Well, I spent it abroad, in the rain. And that’s exactly how my year looked so far. Whenever I went on a trip it was raining. I assumed it will still be summer in Norway at the end of August. I was wrong. The weather forecast was against me. I knew one thing. Nothing will stop me from hiking Pulpit Rock. Rain or no rain, I set off my journey.
Ah, the city of many statutes! Of all shapes and sizes. Each one trying to tell a different story. I’ve never seen so many in one place before! Traumatised by years of war and later a catastrophic earthquake, as much as 80% of the city has been destroyed. While it might be still poor and developing, it’s certainly trying to reinvent and show its real potential. Nonetheless, it still lacks the attention from the tourists… which is exactly why you should get there. Even one day in Skopje will prove you how beautiful the city really is!
From old monasteries and churches to cobbled streets and idyllic lake. Ohrid is one of a kind! The city is known for once having 365 churches. One church for each day of the year. There are still many churches left with a mix of Ottoman and Byzantine architecture. Full of discreet charm, Ohrid makes it hard not to fall in love with. If you’re visiting Macedonia, or even the Balkans, you should put it on the list of must see places! This hidden gem has been listed as UNESCO’s World Heritage for its cultural and natural beauty. It has been under-the-radar, making it a perfect holiday location if you look to escape the crowds.
In the early 20th century, Kosovo was integrated into Serbia. Following years of conflict and war, Kosovo finally declared its independence. Eventually, it became a separate country in February 2008. However, Serbia did not recognise Kosovo’s independence. To this day, Serbia considers it to be part of their country. For those reasons, the authorities don’t recognise border crossing points to be approved ‘international’ crossing points. This causes a lot of difficulties for travellers when entering Serbia from Kosovo. If you’re thinking of visiting both countries, it’s best to plan your journey in advance.
