Travel Plans for 2016

And now let's talk about the exciting travel plans for 2016! We're happy to announce, that 2016 will be all about diverse landscapes, starting with a trip to the magnificent Philippines in January (had to change it - we will fly to Gran Canaria, Spain!), followed by Santorini, Greece (hopefully in April). In summer, we are heading to Iceland, the Faroe Islands aaaaaaaaand... maybe and hopefully Greenland! :) We can't really put in words how excited we already are. Apart from these destinations, we will definitely do some weekend trips in Europe too. For all Slovenia and Switzerland fans - don't worry, we will continue exploring these two incredibly beautiful mountainous countries and hopefully provide you with some amazing travel footage!

 

Apart from travelling, we hope to finally give you a glimpse of our new life in Switzerland! ;)

And don't forget: When in doubt, travel! ;)

    Dear Sonja, I can see that your traveling was quite intensive in 2015. Great experiences. Our travel plans for 2016 are more connected with discovering Slovenia. We will explore more of Soca valley, we want to do some hikes through the vineyards in Vipava valley as well. If you are in Slovenia, let us know. We can go together. On our bucket list are Georgia, Japan or Sri lanka ;) Keep on traveling, Vesna
