Sarajevo (& Mostar), Bosnia and Herzegovina

IMG_0717

This past weekend’s adventure…I barely know where to begin it was so intense, action-packed, and at times life threatening. Okay, I suppose I’ll start off by stating that Sarajevo is, without a doubt, my favourite Balkan city. It is absolutely beautiful and compared to Pristina…it’s an actual real city (though to be fair to Pristina, it was not originally built to be a capital city).

Eateries in Laguna Beach, California

I’m missing home a bit – mostly the food (veggie-friendly Kosovo cuisine is rather redundant), but also, ya know…my family and beach too so thought I’d chit chat about home.

San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy

There are so many amazing little towns to explore throughout Tuscany and deciding which one is no easy task – we landed on San Gimignano largely because of our time constraints (we only had the weekend). And well, it’s pretty darn picturesque. However, it is an itty bitty town so there aren’t loads of things to do within the city walls so we ventured out to a local winery and we were not disappointed!
