Karlovac – Boys and Their Tanks

It’s pretty hard to travel through Balkan countries without someone mentioning the war. Now I should say if you are over there, you NEVER EVER mention the war!

Italy – A Tuscan Treat

I’ve been in love with Tuscany for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure if I’d seen it in old movies I used to watch with Mum on a Sunday afternoon, but I always had visions of the Tuscan countryside, beautiful blue skies, the never-ending rows of vines and the old stone towers of medieval fortresses rising from ...
