We started off in a big bus with only one other passenger going through the mountains and south towards...

However, after a few days we had enough and decided to leave much earlier than planned. In the end we only spent 4 days in Montenegro and we never...

Our first stop in Montenegro was the seaside town Herceg Novi. We didn’t know much about it, it was mainly a good location so we didn’t have to spend too long on the bus. It was a very touristy place compared to what we were used to in Bosnia. Since it was off season, we went there in November, there wasn’t as many tourists as it usually is, and...

Must try food in Bosnia and Hercegovina

By on Mar 12, 2019 in Bosnia-Herzegovina

We ate such good food in Bosnia-Hercegovina. Traditional food is often prepared with meat, and meals are plentiful and delicious.

Mostar Travel Guide: What to do and Where to Eat

By on Mar 3, 2019 in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Mostar, the city with the famous bridge. Neither of us were too impressed byt this city after travelling from the North of Bosnia and Hercegovina. It is a small city catered to tourists, probably the only place in Bosnia that is, at least where we went. Two nights is definitely more than enough. Our favourite things about Mostar was when we left the old city and all...
