Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 65 to 73

Sunday 6th August – 13th August This week was spent relaxing in the small Italian town of Ceriana, very close to the French border. Ceriana is built precariously on the side of a hill, a mess of stone houses, ancient churches, winding medieval-style streets and earthquake-torn ruins. This region of Italy is such a unique… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 65 to 73

Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 60

Sunday 31th July We spent the entirety of today driving along the 48km Grossglockner High Alpine Road, apparently the highest surfaced mountain pass road in Austria (2504m). And a very scenic one at that. This road is A Thing. In fact, it’s so much of A Thing that the state of Austria sees fit to… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 60

Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 58

Friday 29th July Today we headed into the Gesause (Ge-soy-see, apparently!) national park for a day of hiking in Austria’s beautiful countryside. We haven’t even reached the Alps yet, and already Austria is blowing us away with its towering grey mountains and thick green forests. We’d used an Austrian hiking website to plan our route,… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 58

Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 54

Monday 25th July We woke up today right outside the Slovensky Raj national park, poised and ready for a day of hiking. Well, actually half a day of hiking because the routes we were interested in were not dog-friendly; we would have to split the pack and hike solo, one after the other. Slovensky Raj… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 54

Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 39

Monday 10th July We were awoken by a very heavy thunder storm in the early hours of this morning. “Don’t be alarmed” said Morgan calmly, “but the tent is leaking.” Sure enough, a little puddle had formed by the entrance, where the wet outer layer of the tent was pressing against the nice dry inner… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 39

Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 32

Tuesday 4th July It started to rain heavily this morning, just as we were finishing up our morning porridge. Frantically gathering up all our possessions and shoving them into the car alongside Lex, we settled in to wait for the rain to stop. A strange noise from the backseat disturbed the peaceful noise of rain… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 32

Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 28

Friday 30th June Warning: This post will have an extraordinary amount of pictures of dogs. Be on your guard… Today we drove into Helsinki, keen to explore at least one “Scandy capital” on this trip (we’d skipped Olso and Stockholm.) It soon became clear we’d a terrible mistake. Driving in large cities is an infuriating… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 28
