Pinay-German Travel Blogger Finally Made It to Southeast Europe

That was quite a tiresome and exhausting trip but it was all worth it!  The itchy feet of a Pinay-German travel blogger finally visited the Southeast part of Europe. I  am really happy seeing many countries in the Balkans, also known the Balkan Peninsula or simply Southeast Europe.  The opportunity of seeing  and experiencing more countries in Europe finally came true from time to time.

The Old Port of Dubrovnik in Croatia. I was there!
Dubrovnik is a city on the Adriatic Sea coast of Croatia, positioned at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations on the Adriatic, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva county.

During that trip, I visited Slovenia, Montenegro, Croatia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and also passed-by in Austria.  The trip started last April 10 and lasted last April 18, 2013. I did experienced many things during that trip. Not only on how the people live in those countries  including their culture and living, their  history, sights  but also I learned  and discovered  different characters and personalities of the people I traveled with  during that trip.

Ruins of the Rozafa castle. Called in Albanian as Kalaja e Rozafës/Kalaja e Rozafatit, it is a castle near the city of Shkodër, in northwestern Albania. It rises imposingly on a rocky hill, 130 metres above sea level, surrounded by the Buna and Drini rivers.

I felt like the princess because so far, I am the youngest among the group. Most of the people whom I traveled with during that trip to the Balkans were retired German people.  Some were asking me  about my origin because I look different from them, my eyes, my hair and the color of my skin. I am quite proud of myself telling them that I am  Asian and most of all I am a Filipina.

I have a lot of  things  to share and impart from my recent  travel. For now, just enjoy watching the travel snapshots I made during that wonderful and memorable trip. These are only some of the places  we visited during that trip.

The Franciscan Church in Maribor, Slovenia during our sightseeing last April 10, 2013.  I am not sure of the name of the statue on the middle of this photo. Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia. Maribor was, jointly with Guimarães in Portugal, the 2012 European Capital of Culture.
