I’ve been distracted lately. The blog posts have not exactly been coming thick and fast. And that is because for the last month I have been diving in the Philippines.
After being blown away by Dubrovnik I had high expectations when it came to Split and the Croatian islands. Though I did enjoy my time on Brač, the same could not really be said about Split and overall I left Croatia after almost a week feeling a bit flat.
I’m sitting in Sarajevo, reflecting on a very hectic week, in which I visited 7 countries in 7 days. And yet it has been the most interesting, beautiful and puzzling part of my travels so far. If you have never been to this part of the world, then I suggest you book your flights now!
The Jurassic Coast in Purbeck is one of the most beautiful places in the UK – 180 million years of geological history is etched onto into the landscape in the form of dramatic 200ft chalk cliffs, huge limestone arches and beaches strewn with fossils.
I only recall being in central Cape Town once, as a small child; it is fair to say that I cannot remember very much about that visit. Having briefly walked around Johannesburg last week (a city affectionately / deceptively known as “Josy”), and having been acutely aware of my impending death, I fully expected my Cape Town walking tour to be a dreadful affair – walking around dirty streets whilst fearing for my life.
