E leyó esta preciosa historia cuando tenía 10 años. Ahora, con 10 años, la ha leído H. P y S también la han disfrutado, aunque con unos cuantos años más. Y nos ha encantado a los 4. Y nos ha inspirado para el siguiente hesptrip. Y… si aciertas dónde queremos ir te regalamos este libro, […]
Driving through Bosnia-Herzegovina
We wanted to pass Croatia without the traffic jams from the coast side, so we drove through small roads from Bosnia, crossing very beautiful landscapes, but mainly empty of life. We saw many many destroyed houses, and the Balkans war was 25 years ago! After watching the movie ‘A perfect day’ we understand better why […]
Driving through Albania
Albania used to be the poorest country in Europe. Now it’s turn for Moldova. It has a population of almost 3 million people, and it covers an area of 28.748 km2 (so a bit smaller than Catalonia). There were no cars some years ago (it was forbidden until 1991!). Now it’s full of Mercedes Benz… […]
Mali i Robit beach
In Albania we missed the beautiful beaches near Saranda, also the lake Ohrid, on the border with Macedonia… We had the need to drive North so… it’s a pity, we will have to come back some other time! 🙂 So we drove in the direction of Durrësi and stayed in Mali i Robit, a family […]
Gjirokastra is a Unesco World Heritage town with one of the biggest castles in the Balkans and 600 Ottoman houses with characteristic grey roofs placed in the hill. We slept near this town, in the brand new camping place just opened a few days before. The castle contains many weapons and even a shot-down US […]
And of course after Bulgaria we were missing to visit some monasteries… 😛 There is a very special place in the North of Greece called Meteora, where we spent out last night before passing to Albania. Meteora means something like “middle of the sky” or “suspended in the air”. In IX century some monks decided to […]
I feel sorry about E and H because P and S are not real fans of ‘stones’, so we normally pass very quickly through these ‘obliged’ visits that show the very past history. Even quicker when the day is as warm as the days we had in Athens or Delphi. In the end E and H […]
HespTrip arrives to the South!
Today we’ve arrived to the most Southern place in our almost finished hesptrip… Where is it? ¿Dónde es? On és? Waar is het? Tell us the right answer and you will get a Greek souvenir 😛
Bulgarian public baths
We were looking for a swimming pool or somewhere to refresh and we ended up in some thermal water public baths, near Bansko. Girls to one side, boys to the other. And then a kind of small swimming pool with everybody naked and, at least at the female bath, women (many of them quite old) […]
Try to guess… monastery?
Where are we today? Dónde estamos hoy? On som avui? Waar zijn wij? For the 1st right answer, this Bulgarian souvenir!
