Insert caption about rowing boats here πŸ˜† I feel like I’ve been rowing my way through Europe... sort of πŸ˜‚ but all jokes aside, I started this trip around Europe almost 3 months ago, calling it my β€œEuropean bucket list trip” with the goal to visit all the places I’ve been wanting to visit on this continent for a long time and to not wait, but to make it happen! And it has been some of the best memories so far πŸ™ŒπŸ½β˜ΊοΈ I was a little skeptical about visiting certain places (Lake Bled in the picture being one of them) thinking they might be overrated, but I’ve not had one place that didn’t exceed my expectations! Maybe I had low expectations or maybe the places are simply amazing, I’m opting for the second πŸ€“ β € β €

Made it to beautiful Croatia and first thing we did was grabbing a kayak to explore the coast of Pula! Found this cave hidden behind the cliffs, with clear water illuminated by the rays of light shining through the caves entrance 😍

Catching the sunset in Piran, Slovenia’s Adriatic coast 🌊 you can find this spot on Google Maps as β€œwalls of Piran” and go up for only 2€, view over the town included and perfect to watch the sun go down over the ocean 😊 now we’re on to explore a bit of Croatia! 🚐

Excited to share my first sketch from my trips to the Balkans! πŸ€— we have spent the last few days exploring around lake Bled while living in a van that we turned into our home for the next few weeks (see all the details in my stories! 😊). β € β €

Oh and swipe to see the full extend of my β€œlittle” sketch book 😁 I do the sketches on one side and on the other I add tickets, receipt, coins, dried flowers and more to be able to reminisce about all the travels I was lucky to experience when I’m older ☺️

Thank you all for the lovely feedback on sharing my Italy itinerary yesterday! πŸ€— also noticed some of you commenting that IG has now officially removed the count of likes on the photos, super interesting! I haven’t noticed any of these changes yet on my end, maybe that new β€œfeature” is rolling out a little later for me, but it will be interesting to see where that leads! Hopefully it’s a step into the direction of people caring less about the numbers on social media πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ˜ β € β €

What are you thoughts on this? Would be interested in hearing your perspective :) β € β €

Reminiscing on one of my favorite places in Italy - Lake Como 😍 many of you asked about the Italy itinerary that we did, so I thought I’d share it in a post to maybe help some more of you planning a trip here! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‡ β € β €

MY 3 WEEK ITALY ITINERARY:
4 days in Venice (my favorite city in Europe☺️) t’s so unique with its architecture, canals and feel. If you’re not into photography as much, maybe do 2-3 full days. :)
5 days in the Dolomites πŸ” we rented a car from Venice and drove up north for about 3h to the mountains and visited places like Alpe di Siusi (highly recommend staying at @urthaler_seiseralm 😊), Lago di Carezza, Seceda (pack your hiking shoes! πŸ˜‰), Tre Cime di Lavaredo and Lago di Braies before we headed to Austria and Liechtenstein for a few days before coming back to Italy
3 days Lake Como (although I could stay here forever! George Clooney got himself a house here for a reason. Was it for the lake views or a backdrop of mountains, or the beautiful towns along the shore...?πŸ˜„) 2 days Milan (although if you’re a city person I’m sure you can do much longer, but I felt like it was enough to wander through the streets, see the Duomo and other highlights) then we took a train to spend ...
5 days in Cinque Terre, to see the 5 colorful towns built on the cliffs. If you just want to see the towns or just one or two, many people do it as a day trip, but if you really want to take in the atmosphere, go for a swim, a hike, do some cliff diving and eat all the pizza, I’d recommend you to take your time here 😊
Ae also added some time in the town of Portofino, that was like all my favorite things about Italy combined - the sea with small coves to swim in, the food, the fancy architecture and beautiful nature ☺️ But I guess the list is never ending in Italy! However I hope this helped you if you’re planning a trip here and might be looking for a reference :) β € β €

Have you been to any of these places? Or which ones would you want to visit the most? πŸ˜„ β € β €

After returning back home from a trip, one of my favorite things to do is always to go through my sketches from the places I visited and reminisce over all the memories. β˜ΊοΈπŸ™ŒπŸ½β€οΈ This specific sketch reminds me of the day we arrived in Cinque terre, this coastal part of Italy known for its colorful cliff side towns. After taking the train and grabbing some lunch we went back to our apartment to escape the heat, drink some cold wine and exchange the fun, good and embarrassing travel stories with @thewayfaress @traveltomtom πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§ followed by running across town and over sharp rocks to jump and cool off in the water! That day felt like straight out of a movie. Or a book. (Oh yeah right, the stories between the travel sketch book 🌝) β € β €

Wishing you all a happy weekend, hope you’ll make some great memories! 😁❀️

Our European road trip through Italy, Austria, Switzerland (?), Liechtenstein, Monaco and France has officially come to an end πŸ™ˆ so many new experiences we got to make and places we got so lucky to see πŸ™ŒπŸ½ I was just talking to @thewayfaress, my loyal travel buddy on this trip, what our highlights from this past month were. What do you think was my favorite part? All of them πŸ˜† so hard to choose only two or three. The whole trip was filled with movie-like and β€œhow is this even real”-moments. Here a little snippet of the beginning of the trip from our time in the Dolomites, staying at the beautiful @urthaler_seiseralm ☺️ loved waking up with a view of the mountains everyday ❀️ β € β €

Also, is anyone interested in a quick tutorial on @andipresets how I did this stop motion video? If yes let me know, and I’ll share it on @andipresets tomorrow πŸ€—

Kayaking through the gorges du Verdon in South France, what a way to end the trip πŸ˜πŸ›Ά the water was increeedibly blue and let’s not even talk about the views! Getting here we had endless purple lavender fields on one side, and then the blue lake on the other 😍 β € β €
