Na ranajky vybehnute do pekarne pri obchodaku mega1. Dnes kupeny len syrovy burek. Kus riadny co cloveka zasiti. S jedlom popri skalach na plaz mogren 2. K nej sa ide cez skalny tunel kde je mensia drevenna lavka. Moj vcerajci vyhliadnuty plac pod stromom uz trosku okupovany dvoma rodinami ale zmestil som sa. Nevyhoda vsak ihlicnaneho stromu. Na zemi bolo dost ostreho velkeho ihlicia. Kupat ma to dnes nelakalo, tak som len lezal, mocil nohy a konecne som zacal citat knihu. Ta je po cesky ale nemam s nou problem ako so zaklinacom, ktoreho som ani nedocital. Okolo pobehoval neaky cech, co od domacich chalanov zistoval wifi a kde sa da kupit miesta simkarta. Fakt niektory ludia musia byt na nete nonstop. Nepochopim to, sak dovolenka. Teda ak nema clovek homeoffice. Inak 1tb na mesiac za ... read more

Na ranajky som si chcel dat uz konecne nieco balkanske. No ale podla majitela ubytka, pekarnicky v starom meste otvaraju az od 1000, cul je 800. Nuz tak smer centrum. Tu jednu nachadzam, samozrejme hned na mna predavacka krici aby som si dal rusku. Kupujem syrovy burek a makovu strudlu. Smer plaz morgen. Tam este takto skoro nikto nieje. Pod drobnohladom obsluhy z restiky natahujem plachtu a sup ho do slanej studenej vody. Voda pekna cista, dokonca su tu natiahnute bojky. Plaz neni kamenista ale taka jemne strkova, ovsem dno mora je kameniste. Chuj som zabudol na izbe knihu. Plavanie, slnenie zhruba do 1130. Na ubytku sprcha a otestovane kluce od dveri. Vcera v noci som sa nemohol dostat do izby bo bola zamknuta, dnes ma uz vybavili klucmi. Na izbe spanok. Ono vonku je strasny ... read more

Noc na letisku je zamnou. Lezalo sa pohodlne, ziadne zvuky okolo, no i tak som spal len na pol oka. Ludia sa okolo 400 uz zacali trusit na letisko. Ja idem na pasovku a smer moja gate. Pri kontrole obcanky som si musel dat dole satku. Inak satku som mal len pred kontrolou. Vacsina ludi ju vsak nosi stale na letisku. Ranajky vybavene sladkostami z domu a to zapite docapovanou vodou zo zachoda. Do lietadla nastupuju zvacsa domaci, pocul som cestinu i rustinu. Pobavila wizzair pracovnicka ked podgoricu citala ako podgorika. Druhy pracovnik kontroloval pasy, kazdy mimo eu a ciernej hory overoval v systeme ci clovek vlastne moze vstupit na uzemie ciernej hory Sadam si na sedadlo 9b, vedla mna ciernohorka a obrovsky nemec, mohol mat okolo 2m. Pred startom pobehovala letuska a kontrolovala rozopnutie pasov. ... read more

MONTENEGRO DIVING THE ADRIATIC COAST Saturday dawned and I waited in my hotel for Philip, the dive master. Finally he rushed in and told me there was no place to park, grabbed my dive bag and led me to the back of the hotel. He was parked illegally and explained that I should stand at the curb the next morning…it would be easier. We arrived at the dive shop early, so I got a cup of tea, then tried on wet suits because, although the water is much warmer than Sicily or Croatia, it is still too cold for my own three mil wetsuit. At last the rest of the group arrived. Our boat was a large Zodiac (rubber boat, with a firm floor) but without a roof. I pulled my scarf over my head to ... read more

NEXT STOP: BUDVA, MONTENEGRO Part of the adventure is getting there: I traveled by bus from Croatia to Budva, Montenegro. This is how most locals go from one small country to the next. The buses are very nice and I had the option of relaxing in a cushy seat and chatting with a neighbor if I wanted, or I could rest, or sleep. And the best part is I didn’t have to pay a hundred dollars for an extra bag. By bus, I paid less than a euro a bag. I arrived at the bus station in Dubrovnik with six minutes to spare, by the clock. I scurried to buy two chocolate croissants for the trip. No need for the haste, however, as it took twenty minutes to load the luggage under the bus. While I ... read more

Arriving at the border post at 8pm meant no traffic so we entered Croatia quickly and were soon back on the road to Dubrovnik which was only about an hour away, on arrival we headed to the guest house which was by the way very difficult to find, to find the place quiet with nobody there. So with some frustration we went looking for somewhere with wifi, but with new years eve upon us everything outside of the old town was closed except for the odd hotel so after what seemed hours we went there to see if they had rooms which they didn't but at least we could use their wifi over a beer or two. We looked on a hotel booking site or two but couldn't find anything close so we ended up staying ... read more

The next morning we wanted to leave early to go to Budva but after planning our further way and having breakfast, it was about 11 AM when we left. It was pretty difficult to find a parking spot in Budva, but in the end we found one that was quite cheap, just in front of the tourist information. We went to the seaside where Anne had to buy new flip-flops because hers were broken. On the promenade next to the seaside, we got to understand why they call Budva "Ballermann of Croatia"! There were bars everywhere, it was so touristic, it was awful. We went to the old town where it was quite nice but it was too touristic as well with lots of tourist shops. We decided to have lunch there but it wasn't quite ... read more

Vrijdag 17/06/2016 – Budva (Montenegro) 220km Via Podgorica, hoofdstad van de jonge republiek Montenegro naar Budva. Parel aan de Montenegrijnse Riviera. Tenmenste dat was het toen we hier bijna 50j geleden eens op vakantie waren. Ondertussen is het volgebouwd en ziet men zelfs het historische centrum in die mooie baai niet meer liggen vanop de kustweg. We staan op een gereserveerd stuk van een grote betaalstrandparking even buiten het centrum. Dus vlak bij het strand met wat restaurants, strandprullariastalletjes en strooiendakparasoltoestanden. Voorlopig niet overdreven druk, maar morgen week-end zal dat zeker veranderen. Het was hier zeker ooit een pracht van een strandcamping gezien de ligging en getuige van overblijfsels van stroompalen waar toch hier en daar nog stroom opzit. Gelukkig vrij uitzicht op het zuiden voor Astra 3. Zo missen we de belangrijkste matchen... read more

As we left Durres behind us we knew there might be some nail biting on the journey to come! Woolly says – I haven’t even got nails so I wasn’t sure what I would be biting...possibly Jo!!! Having spent hours on the net researching the bus routes we appeared to have two options to our next destination, one that involved seven buses one of which was a once a day option and would leave at 1.30pm or and it was a big OR two buses and two taxis but we had to get through the capital to the pick up point for 8.30am.....we went for plan b. First taxi and bus done and as we arrived back in Tirana we only needed the taxi to get us there to make our final bus of the day, ... read more

The sixth and seventh countries of our tour may be the smallest and youngest, but they certainly deliver when it comes to spectacular scenery. Kosovo has an interesting population....a mix of Serbian and Albanian people's, who, at this point in time at least, bump along together well enough. The majority of them are Muslim, and so minarets feature largely as you travel through this fertile land. We enjoyed a night in Prizren, in a newly (almost!!) completed hotel, and got to enjoy some wonderful hospitality. These people are enormously proud of their new nation, and extended us such a warm and generous welcome. We enjoyed learning a little more of the history of the region from Rozle, who explained why the town was so strategically placed, at the door to a river valley. The surrounding mountains ... read more
