Croatia's National Parks: Plitvice & Krka

We spent the last full week in May exploring Croatia and loved two of their national parks: Plitvice Lakes and Krka National Parks. Jaw-dropping waterfalls, bright blue-green water, wildlife, and plenty of easy hiking. We LOVED Croatia and highly recommend visiting this gorgeous country! It's an outdoor-lover's dream with so much to do.

Climbing Kinder Scout from Edale

Sharing some pictures of Kinder Scout in the Peak District today as I recover from a wicked flu. This is one of the highest points in the Peak District and WOW was the scenery gorgeous! The weather was perfect, one of the warmest days yet. I could sit and look at the sprawling views all day. Purple heather was everywhere. Bliss!

Doyles Take England: Devon and Exmoor National Park

Three nights in Devon with lots of hiking! Devon has coastline in both the north and the south, touching both the Bristol Channel and the English Channel. We stayed in a small town called Lynton in the northern part of the county, very close to Somerset, with views over the Bristol Channel. Exmoor National Park is in North Devon, and we planned to explore that area during our stay. Everything about this area was beautiful...

Walking in the Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a popular walking destination in England made up of river valleys and hills. A "dale" is a valley, a word derived from old Nordic and Germanic languages. Dales throughout the county of Yorkshire are named after their corresponding river: Swaledale, Wharfedale, etc. After a fabulous breakfast in Leeds, we drove to tiny Kettlewell and tackled the Great Whernside walking route, heading for the rocky summit of Wharfedale. Gorgeous day!!
