Superlatives: The Sequel

Little Prince at Scale, Chisinau, Moldova

The best (and worst) of everything (since last time) When we compiled a list of the best and worst of everything on our trip to date, 1000 days of travel seemed like an extraordinary amount of time, a milestone we never imagined possible when we set out. Well now we’ve doubled…

Hvar Harbor, Hvar, Croatia

November 13, 2020 – March 9, 2021 (Winter) One of our go-to metaphors for our way of life is “the same boring lives we lived back home, only with a castle out the window.” There are few places where that is more accurate than on the picture-perfect Croatian island of…

Novi Sad

Danielle in Novi Sad, Serbia

June 15 – 26, 2020 (Summer) With Serbia keeping restrictions light, we decided to relocate to Novi Sad to celebrate our tenth anniversary. The vibe on our first visit was relaxed, the center walkable. It has a river with shore paths and a giant fortress looming over the Danube. What…

Crowds Despite Covid, Belgrade, Serbia

June 1 – 15 & June 26 – July 10, 2020 (Summer) The pandemic scared most nations into refusing entry to all but their own citizens. Serbia went a different direction, being one of the first to reopen their borders to everyone. And as American passport holders started to become…

Downtown Ejmiatsin, Armenia

March 8 – 26, 2020 (Spring) Where were you when the world became a plague state? We were in Etchmiadzin, Armenia. Which, it turned out, was about to become the epicenter of Armenia’s first Covid outbreak. All we wanted was a quiet stay as spring started. A chance to wander…
