The First 5 Weeks Wow, 5 weeks have already passed. The first thing I noticed about Podgorica was the incredible views of the mountains in every direction. Even as the plane descended towards the Aerodrome Crne Gore airport, the views of the mountains were stunning. The flight from Vancouver was long, with 3 layovers and totaling 36hrs from first takeoff to final landing. I feel genuinely bad for the person that was stuck sitting next to me on the last flight from Belgrade to Podgorica, as I could smell myself and after such a long continuous journey, I stunk! Fortunately, the host of my first Airbnb stop was terrific, having a taxi ready and waiting for me to arrive. After a short ride to meet my host and getting introduced to my new home, for ... read more

Vcera som padol uz o 2030 no i tak sa mi o 745 moc vstavat nechcelo. Vdaka krupom a dazdu som prechladol, sopel, kychanie. V zabljaku som po prvy krat nahodil aj vrch pyzama a bol som dokonca zakryty. Tolko k teplotnym rozdielom na juhu a na severe. Mikrobus do podgorice ide o 850, dalsi az nieco po 1300. Ak by bolo fajn pocasie, tak by som tu zostal ale vonku mrholi. Na ranajky dva kitkaty a smer bus stanica teda parkovisko. Mikrobus dosol o pol hodinu skor uz s nalozenymi ludmi. Vyrazili sme nacas. Listok predaval vodic, tak ziadne poplatky bus stanici. Vonku fakt nahovno pocasie. To sa zlepsilo pred niksicom kde uz slnecno. V niksici sme stali iba na okrajovej pumpe kde vyskocila matka s dcerami. Aj som uvazoval, ze navstivim klastor ostrog ale ... read more

Zondag 19/6 - Podgorica - Montenegro F wordt onderzocht in de consultatie, en om 04:00 wordt haar meegedeeld dat ze naar huis moet en binnen 12u terug komen voor verder onderzoek. Hoezo naar huis...? kan niet ! Na aandringen mag ze op een stretcher slapen. Ze wordt verder aan haar lot overgelaten. Niemand bekommert zich om haar. Tot ik in de voormiddag daar toekom, haar op een bank buiten vind, en dan samen naar de consultatie trekken. Het is daar complete chaos. Mensen wachten rechtstaand in de gang. Iedereen kan zomaar de consultatie binnen en buiten, terwijl onderzoeken bezig zijn. Niet duidelijk wie doctor is en wie niet, wie van het ziekenhuis is of wie niet. Soms worden we geholpen door familie van meegekomen patienten die wat Engels spreken. Verschillende onderzoeken gebeuren, maar we moeten... read more

Nine months ago, Shane typed into Google, Eastern Europe Motorbike Tours. He scrolled down, and opened the web page for Clutch Moto Tours, and was reasonably impressed with what he read and saw. A leap of faith early 2016 saw him Internet banking a significant sum of money to someone whom he'd never met, with a strange name, who supposedly lived in a country a bloody long way away! Did he really exist? Was this just another elaborate Nigerian scam?! Who would know!! Fast forward nine months, and we are in Montenegro, having just ridden into the seventh country of Clutch's Tour of the Seven Countries of the former Yugoslavia. This has to be an example of the power of the Internet, to connect like-minded travellers with smart young entrepreneurs. Rozle Verhovc, a 36 year old ... read more

Hey guys Yesterday was chilling day. All I could manage was to climb another hill in Podgorica (Ljubović) and watch Chelsea vs ManU game. Most of the day I did research about hitchhiking possibilities from Podgorica because I want to go to visit my friends in Mostar. It's around 247km away from where I am now so in real terms it could be done in a day or three. Plus weather forecast, showing showers, is not making me a happy lad. But should be even worse on Tuesday morning so I have to try my luck on Monday. My friend Fritz kept me busy during my research with questions about social and immigration system in Germany (like I'm an expert in that field). Yeah, whatever. Never mind, it was good day and I feel recharged and ... read more

After 6 months of working and saving I can once again leave for another trip to beloved Balkan. My first stop is Podgorica. There's no direct connection between Edinburgh and Podgorica so I had to book two separate flights. First, Edinburgh - London and then London - Podgorica. Direct flight from London to Podgorica was leaving London at 8.25am but there was no flight from Edinburgh to London landing in London before 8.25am so I had to fly to London evening before and spend 14 hours at the airport. But I didn't mind as I'm on budget. One hour flight from Edinburgh to London was pretty straightforward. I found a decent spot at the airport in London where I could comfortably sleep. I started to read a book when a guy approached me with question if ... read more

Sabah kahvaltımız bermutad neşeli geçti.. toparlanma zorunluluğu yüzünden bu sabah denize girmedim fakat çıkış saatimiz nedeniyle milletin bir kısmı Budva eski şehrinde bir tur atma fırsatını kullandı.. son ıvır zıvır hediyelik eşyalar alındı. Saat 10:00 otelle ilişik kesildi. Otobüsümüze bindik .. Nedense şöförler her halde maliyet yüklüyor diye Souza tünelinden geçmekten imtina ediyorlar. Bu tünel hem yolumuzu kısaltıyor hem de virajlardan içimiz çıkmıyor. Gerekli uyarıyı yaptık ve Souza tünelinden geçerek hatta Iskodra gölü kıyısını izleyerek kısa sürede Podgorica hava alanına vardık Duty free talanları yapıldı PHOTO_I... read more

This part of my trip was another special time, because I was again able to reconnect with friends. I met Karsten and Birte in Borneo ten years ago, when I first traveled on my own. They were doing a year or so abroad, and I think inspired me to do the same. Two years later I did. Last year, Jeroen and I met up with them and their son in Hong Kong for a short time. They were just moving from Germany to Montenegro. Although I got close last summer, I didn't make it to Montenegro on my trip in eastern Europe. But this summer, I did and it was great. I arrived on a Friday afternoon, a little earlier than I expected. I took a cab to their house and met with Birte and her ... read more
