Everyone's under a microscope," said food blogger and influencer Ali Maffucci, who exp... read more

After checking into our hotel in Sarajevo, which was just across the river from Baščaršija, we set out for a walk through the city. Sarajevo is full of history, both ancient and modern. The city was the meeting point of Roman Catholic west, Eastern Orthodox east and the Ottoman south. Historically it was a fairly tolerant city where Islam, Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Judaism coexisted peacefully for the most part. That tolerance and mostly peaceful coexistence was shattered in more recent history first with the expulsion of Jews when Bosnia was under control of the Nazis and then even more recently during the Bosnian war. Nowadays the city is on the road to recovering its tolerance. As soon as we crossed the river and entered Baščaršija. The part of Baščaršijawe enteredwas constructed in the 15th century by ... read more

Als wir den Ramskosee verlassen sind wir ein bisschen traurig, denn wenn wir Adrijan glauben dürfen, wird es diesen schönen Ort schon bald nicht mehr geben. Da der See lediglich aufgestaut wurde um mit seiner Wasserkraft Elektrizität zu erzeugen und derzeit ein neues Elektrizitätswerk gebaut wird, soll er in den nächsten Jahren quasi wieder „abgelassen“ werden. Dann fließt hier einfach nur noch ein Fluss durch die Berge und die Halbinsel Scit ist eine kleine Ansammlung von Häusern auf einer Anhöhe. Kurios. Aber vermutlich wird es dennoch ein schöner Ort bleiben. Als wir weiterfahren und mit dem Jablanicko See auf halbem Weg den nächsten türkisblau schimmernden, sich fjordartig durch die Berge ziehenden Stausee erblicken wissen wir aber auch, warum die Bosnier der Verlust eines weiteren Sees nicht schmerzt. Sie haben diese glasklaren Gewässer einfach im Überfluss. Was ... read more

From Mostar’s mountainous hills, we drove to Sarajevo where snow-covered, high mountains showed why it was host to the 1984 Winter Olympics, just before Calgary. The drive was captivating as we followed the Neretva River valley through ever-more beautiful arrangements of hills. Towns were populated by three-story homes, topped with red clay tiles. Larger towns sometimes had a few high-rises, and some of the lower buildings were large enough to be multi-family places. A few un-reclaimed bombed-out stone houses were half-over-grown with grasses and bushes. Because of the war in 1992 – 1995, almost all buildings looked new, although some must only have been restored. We stopped at a petrol station for a break; the solitar... read more

After good breakfast, best we've had so far, departed for Mostar. Stopped at border crossing to Bosnia for almost 3/4 hour while checking passports etc. Arrived Mostar about 11am when weather changed, a north wind, really strong then turned cold. Walked to the bridge through market stalls, lots of people. Bridge was very difficult to climb as it was so steep and very windy. Diving had stopped because of wind. Just started to rain so found a restaurant and stopped for lunch, nothing exciting. Didnt find the whole bridge visit that good, too crowded and cold/wet.Really just a tourist trap now. Back to bus in the rain to leave at 2.30pm. Driving around amazing to see the bullet holes still in many buildings, some still abandoned and burnt out. Long drive to Sarajevo Novotel Bristol hotel, ... read more

We get up and go for breakfast. Hotel Lula is a unique place. I can’t quite decide if the décor is shabby chic or just shabby. The stains on the carpet have almost sold me on shabby, when we descend into the basement dining area. Along one wall is the breakfast buffet. The other 3 walls consist of a fake cottage, a fake woodpile and a fake forest. Running right through the middle; a fake tree. After breakfast we set off to explore Sarajevo. We start at the Yellow Bastion which offers a great view of the city (ie involves a long uphill walk). It’s next to a huge war grave, one of many you can spot from the top of the hill. Next we visit the beautifully restored City Hall with its ornate interior and ... read more

Today is going to be smelly. We have run out of clean clothes and yesterday’s car troubles put paid to our laundry plans. So we will be driving to Sarajevo with the windows open. 3 things I know about Sarajevo; (1) Franz Ferdinand was assassinated here, an event which sparked World War I, (2) during the Bosnian War the city was under siege for several years and (3) it hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. This morning entails another scenic mountain drive, much of it along the valley of the beautiful blue-green Neretva River. We stop in Jablanica, site of a WW2 battle where Tito’s Partisan forces took out a railway bridge to thwart the advancing Germans. The bridge still lies upended in the river as a monument to those who fought. On the outskirts of Sarajevo ... read more

The terrain between the border and Trebinje was unusual there was little sign of habitation and the landscape was rocky and desert like which was certainly unexpected for this part of the world, but soon began to change as we came closer. On the outskirts of town we stopped at a service station for a coffee and to orientate ourselves a little before turning back down the highway and heading back towards the town centre where we took a right rather than the left we should have and ended up back near the service station although the drive through the outskirts of town were scenic. We then headed back to the town centre and headed left which took us to the older part of town where we hoped to find the Arslanagic bridge which fords the ... read more
