Three Countries in Six Days in Pictures

So last week was an incredibly travel intensive one for me as I visited three beautiful countries – Italy, Croatia and Slovenia. It was exhausting, exhilarating, liberating and amazing all at the same time. Since it’s been such a whirlwind and I’m still recovering and getting my head around it all, here’s a little introduction to my week in pictures…

Pesaro, Italy, Three Countries in Six Days

I started my trip in Pesaro, an Italian beach town in the Marche region. It’s the type of place to relax on the beach, cycle along the esplanade and wander the quaint older streets.

Pesaro, Italy, Arnaldo Pomodoro

Along the bustling esplanade lies this magical piece of art. It is Arnaldo Pomodoro’s ‘Sphere Grande’ and looked absolutely mesmerising against the brilliant blue sky.

Italy has some of the best architecture in the world, in my opinion. I loved this door that I found in Pesaro.

After Pesaro I returned to a place I had an absolute blast in last year – Rimini in Emilia Romagna. Last year I enjoyed getting acquainted with the two sides to Rimini. It has an impossibly long sandy stretch of beach where the sunrises and sunsets are to die for and it also has a charming historical old centre. The mixture of both fun and frivolity with history, culture and undeniable charm made me really warm to Rimini last summer.

Walking along the marina area overlooking the beach before sunset reminded me of how much fun I had there last summer. It’s definitely a beautiful spot.

From there it was off to Ravenna, Venice and then on the ferry across the Adriatic to Croatia and Slovenia.

Having never been to Slovenia before (woohoo, new country!) I was really excited to explore and I was blown away by how natural and pretty the landscape is there.

Slovenia, Three Countries in Six Days

The salt flats we visited were wonderfully peaceful, calm and relaxing. I could have stayed there for hours enjoying the silence.

From there it was onto the picturesque city of Piran, which I loved. The sight of the terracotta roofs against the brilliant blue sky and the shimmering turquoise waters was perfect.

After Croatia and Slovenia, it was back to Italy and off to a place that I love – Venice. It’s hard to describe Venice in words that haven’t already been written and it’s always crammed with tourists, but even that can’t take away from the undeniable magic of the city.

Venice, Italy, Three Countries in Six Days

I love adore walking around and seeing the crumbling majesty of the opulent architecture and buildings.

Lucky me then that I get to be back in Venice this weekend! Keep following along to see what I get up to next…
