Spring on the Adriatic – Part 4: Kotor, Montenegro

Spring on the Adriatic – Part 4: Kotor, Montenegro

We got an early start the following morning to drive south to Kotor, Montenegro, located about 2 hours south of Dubrovnik.

The drive to the border was uneventful but beautiful, cutting inland from the coast into the mountains. Crossing the border was no problem, but if you’re planning a similar trip, be sure your rental car agreement allows driving into Montenegro, as many do not allow leaving Croatia.

Spring on the Adriatic – Part 1: Getting There

Spring on the Adriatic – Part 1: Getting There

In the past few years, interest in the Adriatic region of Europe has increased substantially, in large part to HBO’s Game of Thrones. Much of the show is filmed in Croatia, and the country has seen a huge influx of tourism.

The Adriatic is beautiful, and I greatly enjoyed my visit to Slovenia in 2014. While much of this trip would be in Croatia, my friend and I also planned day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Delta’s Inaugural A350 Flight!

Delta’s Inaugural A350 Flight!

Hello everyone! Today is an incredibly exciting day as the Airbus A350 enters service for Delta Air Lines! I purchased a seat (in Delta’s new Suites class!) several months ago when the inaugural route was announced, and I’m thrilled to be able to share my experience in real time today! I shouldn’t have any trouble updating while on board, as Delta’s equipped their A350 with 2Ku WiFi. However, if you want more photos, you can also check out my Snapchat Story of today’s events @mspgabe.

48 Hours in Europe – Part 1: Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic

The Czech Republic (or Czechia) has been one of the most popular European destinations the past several years. Many airlines are adding flights to Prague at least seasonally to keep up with increased demand. While Prague’s been high on my list for quite some time, my first time in Czechia was in the much lesser known, but just as beautiful, Karlovy Vary.

24 Hours in Sapporo

24 Hours in Sapporo

Though I’ve been to Japan several times, I’ve never ventured anywhere other than Tokyo. My friend and I have long talked about flying to see the cherry blossoms when they are in bloom, and as luck would have it, we both had some time off at the beginning of May. Normally this is too late for much of Japan, but it’s perfect timing for the northern island of Hokkaido.
