California Globetrotter by California Globetrotter - 1M ago

An array of ochre, yellow and orange houses rise up from the sea, jutting out on to a thin strip of peninsula, sharply contracting against a blue sky. This is how I shall always remember Rovinj, Croatia, one of the loveliest towns along the Istria which stretches from the Gulf of Trieste to the Kvarner Gulf. Cobblestone alleys lead in every which direction, with low hanging archways perfectly framing picture perfect alleys very much still lived in by locals. Clothes lines hang hither and thither and occasionally, a glimpse of bright turquoise blue waters peaks out, and I realize, yes, this is EXACTLY why I wanted to come here!

If ever there was the most idyllic castle that would suit my every need, then it would without a doubt be Miramare Castle, just 10 minutes from Trieste. A quaint, white stone castle perched on a cliff just feet above the Adriatic Sea, facing out to an endless blue sea and lush gardens with terracotta potted plants. I could have imagined a lovely, peaceful life here... until I discovered the curse of anyone who sleeps at Castello di Miramare...

Trieste, Italy, a beautiful coastal town on a small strip of land that borders Slovenia. You've probably never heard of it before, as Italy is dominated by headline cities such as Venice, Rome, Florence, Naples, Cinque Terre, Verona and many, many more, and still it offers many wonderful reasons for visiting. Despite being located on the easternmost tip of Italy, opposite Venice via the Adriatic Sea, this port city is spewing with things to see and do! So, the question remains, "What brought me to Trieste?"

You may not know it, but there are more things to do in Slovenia than just visiting Ljubljana or Lake Bled. And perhaps it may come as a surprise to you, but Slovenia also has a little sliver of beautiful coastline along the Adriatic Sea. While we settled in Piran (Pirano), the gem of the Slovenian Riviera, for our 4 day Easter weekend, it's also an easy day trip from both Ljubljana and Lake Bled and I can say with absolute certainty that if you're planning a Balkan road trip, you will want to add this to your itinerary! But what makes this enchanting city along the Adriatic so special?

When considering a visit to Europe, some might become overwhelmed with the endless options when it comes to finding the best places to visit and the huge variety between countries. While hitting up Europe's capital cities like London, Paris, Prague, or Rome, it's always a great idea to include a few, smaller, picturesque towns, but finding these pretty little towns can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. So, I've gathered 50 small cities and cute towns in Europe that are just downright STUPID PRETTY!

Let's admit it, if you're a hardcore wanderluster with an insatiable hunger to explore every crevice of the world, your house probably looks something like mine. Not entirely furnished because you would rather spend your hard earned money on travel than decorating your house, except when it comes to decorating your house in your love of all things maps, travel inspiration, travel souvenirs and more. You likely have maps on every wall, pillows with maps, coffee cups with maps and anything and everything that is going to remind you of your past travels and the ones still to come! But, if you're just settling into a place of your own, and are as addicted to travel as I, then here are my favorite travel-themed home decor accessories!
