Eating Round Cornwall.

As with all my travels, food plays a huge role and I always make it a point to sample the local specialties. Here we were in Cornwall for about three weeks and it gave us a nice time frame to sample a wide variety of things … all of them good eats, from the local pub meals to chippy fare.

Croatia : Arrival in Zagreb + Visits Nextdoor.

Croatia has been truly amazing. The food is cheap, the coffee is spot on, and the sights are worthy of every single UNESCO endorsement ever given. Being so close to the border, we chose to visit other countries next door during our short stay in Zagreb. Zagreb is pretty empty anyway in the summer months.
