Hiking Mount Mosor the “Man’s Way”

Mount Mosor is the highest peak in the Split area, renown for its fabulous views over the Dalmatian coastline. So when my new Croatian friends Vedran and Goran offered to take me for a hike up Mount Mosor there was no way I was going to say no.“Bring 2 liters of water, sunscreen and a [...]

The stunning beauty of Kotor Bay in Perast, Montenegro

Perast is a small town about 30 minutes away from Kotor. There isn’t much to the place and honestly not a heck of a lot to do there - except maybe look out at some of the most incredible scenery you’ve seen in your life.  I guess Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones were as impressed as us [...]

Photo Essay. Why Kotor, Montenegro, totally blew us away

Kotor has been on my list of places to see ever since spotting a photo similar to the above on another blog. So when we left Split last week for a little trip down south, Kotor was the place I wanted to see. Not Dubrovnik, but Kotor. I didn’t tell Spanky that because she hates [...]

A Day Trip to Trogir, Croatia

Trogir is both a Unesco World Heritage Site and an easy day trip from Split. We came here a week ago on a Sunday. A Sunday in April? We’d been warned that April is ‘off-season’ and that Sunday is “God’s Day” (we’ve learned that Croatians are a lot more devout than we ever expected). Still, this ended [...]

hate me the way I hate you. Mostar, Bosnia

Hate and Sadness in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Above: Sticker on the hospital sign that says it all. We came from Croatia’s pretty Dalmatian Coast, turning inland where the Neretva River runs into the Adriatic. Following the valley of the river, it took another half an hour to get to the border of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is always interesting entering a new [...]


The pretty side of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Mostar is a place different than any I’ve visited in Europe. Everyone says that Istanbul is where East meets West, but the same can be said for Mostar. Walk through the Old Town, see the architecture and the things for sale, and you feel like you could be somewhere in the Middle East. Except that [...]
