What a beautifully underestimated country. I say 'underestimated' solely on my personal lack of knowledge prior to showing up at its border, and stalling our rental car at the customs booth.
I couldn’t believe how difficult it was to get answers regarding car rentals, border crossing, and cross-country car drop offs while we were in the research phase of our trip. We had to figure it out first hand over there and here is the low down for these inquiries as of July 2016...
The Balkans Part THRICE: Dubrovnik
After catching up nuff ZZZs on the 8am bus from Split, we were finally in Dubrovnik – a beautiful, medieval castle town, perched right on the water. Besides getting that hawt instagram with the fortress, Dubrovnik was also our conveniently located launching pad into Montenegro and Bosnia. It’s a must-see site on it’s own accord, however (in case you hadn’t heard).
Part Two: Canaliens On A Train
After just over a week in London, UK -which will be my final post from this trip- it was time to head off on our mini Balkan Tour.
FIRST STOP: Bled, Slovenia
Located between Austria, Italy and Croatia, Slovenia is where the Germanic, Mediterranean and Slavic worlds come together, and it is probably the most underrated place I've been to yet. Lush gardens, rolling fields, medieval towns, the Julian Alps, fresh air, fresher food.
I went to Grand Cayman earlier this year with B. to meet his parents and fell head over heels in love with the flip flop life. Blue skies, warm skin, salty air, sand in your toes. It doesn’t get much better than that, especially in February!
Have you found him yet? He's right there... Right in the... Okay, confession, he's not actually in the picture. He didn't read this article on "How To Buy Burning Man Tickets," so he missed on an experience of a life time! It's too bad because all he had to do was close his eyes, tap the heels of his desert boots together three times and think to himself "The Playa Provides!"
Registration for Burning Man tickets starts Today!!! ...and goes until Friday.

Long Distance is hard. Like most other couples amidst young love today, finding out that my main man, my other half, Koy would be moving to a different country was like the Earth had spun off its axis. Here's a video he made for me when he left of the last summer we spent together in 2013. The modern day love letter for current nomads like us living the Canalien Life.
