America: Outer Banks, North Carolina

America: Outer Banks, North Carolina

Y’ALL (feeling justified to use that atm). You must explore the Outer Banks.. and take at least 2 weeks to do so. We were delusional enough to think we could see them in a day, extended our trip another day and still couldn’t see a quarter of them. HERE's what we learned!

America: Oxford, Mississippi

America: Oxford, Mississippi

by Sydney Binnington October 03, 2016

Among many cute historic sites, Oxford, MS is most famously known as home to Ole Miss and its next level tailgates at 'The Grove'. Also dubbed "The Mother and Mistress of Outdoor Ritual Mayhem" by the New York Times, The Grove is located right in the middle of the University of Mississippi's campus. A clean, green study space for students on every other day, but home to the *glammest* outdoor cocktail parties on game days.

Our final stops in Montenegro: Two beautiful ocean side destinations. Sveti Stefan with it's 1970s glamour vibes, and Kotor with it's 1570s glamour vibes. Both are a must see!

Wow. Probably one of our favourite nights in Montenegro. Went out for a nightcap, came home with 4 slices of pizza and a 160 year old lemon.

The Balkans: Montenegro Part 1 (Perast)

by Sydney Binnington September 06, 2016

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.

The Balkans: Renting a Car in Europe, an FYI

by Sydney Binnington August 24, 2016

 

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 a lovely day in Bled, and then a quick stop at a Ljubljana McDonalds (strictly to add another notch to my personal masterpiece; my own Burgers of the World Collage est. release date 2030*), we boarded our extremely timely train. You know where that punctuality is from, kids? Well it's just Slovenia's Austro-German influence shining through, of course! Or maybe I'm just really used to things not being on time.

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.

How to Live in Flip Flops

How to Live in Flip Flops

by Devlin Kenny April 20, 2016

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!
