A perfectly ordinary day

Looking back over my posts, I feel like all I do is relate complaints and hi-jinks. But actually, most of walking is just that – walking. On a 30 kilometre day I’m doing 8 hours of walking, and only have 3 interesting tid-bits to share. On a good day (a...

A day of rest

Serendipity is a wonderful thing. Rest is a wonderful thing. Pubs are wonderful things. Finding yourself serendipitously forced to rest at a pub is a wonderful thing cubed. The place I stayed in Goulceby was the Three Horseshoes, a pub with camping and glamping out the back. As I mentioned...

But just one street back and away from this central hub and you’ll find small squares bustling with friendly locals, affordable beer and multicultural food.

Caffe Bar Sunce

Zmajsko Pivovara (Dragon Brewery) produces a delicious pale ale which we found...

Visiting John Snow

We’ve made some new friends in Zagreb and a few weeks ago, in a fit of drunkenness, I loudly exclaimed to them “I’m passionate about sanitation!” So it’s no surprise, really, that we went along to visit the John Snow pub in London. After my exclamation, our new friends looked...

Because this is Croatia

Last night as we were walking home from the theatre, we stopped by an old lady who appeared to be struggling to walk. “Do you think we should help her?” said C. We looked back at the woman, who was leaning against the wall, her handbag and a bag of...

Planning for Oz

In very exciting news, we’re heading back to Australia for Christmas (hi mum and dad!). I’m looking forward to Asian food, and oysters, crumpets, strong tea, and the sun and the beach, and of course seeing all my friends and family. But there’s one thing I’m rather nervous about. Beer....
