Grab a friend and visit Bansko in summer to discover authentic people

The While in Europe List Round III

Romania, the Balkans and Eastern Europe for me… maybe we’ll see you there, Amanda!

Amanda Afield

We’ve committed to another year in the UK, but I think this time it will definitely be the last one. Which means we have to travel as much as possible while it’s still cheap to visit Europe.

Our ever growing bucket/while we live in Europe list has been updated since last year, and since then we’ve visited most of the places we hoped to, and have plans for the rest in the not too distant future.
Krakow-the history, architecture and food!We visited Krakow in December 2016, ate so many pierogis, visited Christmas markets and paid our respects at Auschwitz.It was a weekend we won’t soon forget.

Ben Nevis: Climbing Britain’s Highest Mountain

If I told my girlfriend that Jamie Fraser was at the top, I’d probably have to chase her up, otherwise I’d have go this one alone! 🤔

21125625_10100239766967162_8322110996708701505_oOne of our goals while living in the UK was to climb the highest peak in Scotland, England and Wales. Our first year, we travelled to Snowdonia and climbed the highest peak in Wales, Snowdon, and spent some time enjoying ourselves among the castles and seaside.

Last summer, we visited the beautiful and remote Wasdale Head, and climbed Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England. That left the largest peak and longest drive, Ben Nevis at 1344 metres above sea level. We booked ourselves into the Achintee Farm B&B which is located right by the Ben Nevis Inn at the trail head and crossed our fingers for good weather.

The day we planned to hike was GORGEOUS. No wind, no rain and most of all reasonably good visibility for most of the hike. We followed the main trail up to the summit, also known as the Mountain…
