We’re currently spending 9 days in the Balkan region of Europe and our first stop is Montenegro.
This past weekend we flew into Dubrovnik, Croatia and then took a private taxi across the border into Montenegro. The decision to travel to Montenegro was mine. I wanted to travel somewhere cheap, scorching hot, and not too far from London. For a split second we thought about going to Russia, then vetoed the idea when we realized it didn’t fit any of the aforementioned criteria. Instead, the Balkans came to mind. We did a sailing trip in northern Croatia a few years before — while I didn’t enjoy sailing part of it, I really dug Croatia’s overall vibe and I knew that I wanted to return at some point to tour the surrounding areas. Montenegro has always piqued my interest for some reason, I’m not sure why. So when I discovered its geographic proximity to Dubrovnik I realized that this would be a prime opportunity to visit. We spent three days in the quaint, coastal town of Kotor, making a day trip to the comparatively larger and busier Budva. Some pics of our adventures in this country are below.
Have you ever been to Montenegro? Is it on your radar?
