From Faro to Lagos, exploring the scenic coast of south Portugal was an experience I’ll never forget. Take advantage of the country’s many photo opportunities and hire a car to stop along at some of the most pristine beaches, colourful towns and gorgeous views.
Gibraltar is hidden gem that everyone should explore. There’s nothing bad I can say about this small country. I enjoyed every moment of it – from monkeys that steal from your backpacks, to playful dolphins in the Bay or the sunshine on your skin as you hike the Rock of Gibraltar or lie on the beach at Catalan Bay.
Croatia had been on my top countries list since the first time I laid eyes on an image of Dubrovnik. To experience it in person has definitely been a dream come true. Well-known for its “Game of Thrones” locations (kudos to the location scouter!), I really did feel like royalty as I strode through the historic old town.
