Thank you for reading Rear View Mirror: The Road Trip Travel Blog and welcome!
I’m Andrea, the creator behind Rear View Mirror, a travel blog dedicated to all things travel in Europe. I wanted to give you a quick overview of who I am and what you can find on the blog.
I’m an Aussie from Perth who has been living and travelling in Europe since 2000 with my British/Albanian partner. I’ve lived in London, Paris, Montpellier and Budapest. For the last 5 years, I’ve been location independent, spending most of my time in Central Europe and the Balkans, working as a travel blogger and creator.
From my travel experiences and research, I’ve created city guides, road trip itineraries, self-guided food tours and neighbourhood guides, all designed to help you plan your own trip.
To get you started with a little inspiration, I suggest looking through the destinations you are interested in or getting ideas from my road trip guides.
Two countries I specialise in are Albania and Hungary. You can find out why I always recommend these destinations by reading the most popular guides on the blog.
If you’re more curious about Western Europe you might be interested in posts about France and Italy.
For off the beaten path destinations, consider visiting Belarus or Transnistria.
Or maybe you’re more interested in storytelling and you’d like to read about the time I had lunch with drug lords in Albania’s most infamous village.
