My 2013 Travel Adventures

Posted on by Emma Gray in China, Croatia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Montenegro, Scotland, Singapore, Travel Tales, Vietnam | 10 Comments

2013 has been a pretty big travel year for me. I’ve visited fourteen different countries including six brand new ones taking my total number of countries to 33. Not bad!

I began the year watching fireworks light up the sky over Edinburgh Castle surrounded by other lovely travel bloggers. We were at the beginning of a whirlwind trip around Scotland seeing all that my beloved country has to offer.

Shockingly for Scotland the weather even behaved and we had warm temperatures, no snow and very little rain. Thanks, Mother Nature!

The destination that most surprised me on my Eastern Mediterranean cruise earlier this year was definitely Kotor, Montenegro.

I knew to get to the city of Kotor the ship sailed down the bay of the same name, and I’d heard it had all the looks and character of a fiord, despite actually being a ria. Having sailed down a real fiord before, and seen some of the most beautiful sails in different countries, I really wasn’t expecting anything too exciting.

But I was so wrong.
