The next morning after a delicious breakfast (ham and eggs), we got on the bus to head to our hike for the day. The drive up was just gorgeous. It was hard to get a good photo at times, but the winding roads, mountains, geology, sheep - just beautiful. We were initially supposed to hike Bobotuv Kuk, the highest point, and our guide showed us where we would have started. We continued on, and finally stopped at a pull out area with benches and a frame as photo ops. There were plenty of cars with tourists obviously taking advantage of the nice weather, but for the moment we had the spot to ourselves. Our guide was like, how can I make you guys move? For the second time actually - he was very nice about it, ... read more

Budicek uz o 500. Hodene do seba ranajky a smer cierne jazero. Dedinka este vyludnena, vsetko pozatvarane. Kusok za dedinkou sa ku mne pripojuju dvaja psi. Jazero je i zrana uplne paradne. Riadim sa znackou, biely kruh a v nom cervena bodka. Znacenie je dobre, len kokoti maju vsetky trasy znacene jednou farbou a smerovniky skoro neexistuju. Dost casto je na kamenoch na zemi aj cervena ciara. Prechadzam mostikom a uz stupam ihlicnanym lesom k mojmu cielu, bobotov kuk. Ako idem vyssie zacina sa predomnou otvarat skvele udolie obklopene nenormalnymi vrchmi. Vydrbany psi idu furt se mnu. Riadne pachnu. Okolo nich a tym padom i okolo mna roje much. Prichadzam k salasu, kde dedko miesto zincice predava plechovkove pivo. Cesta je dopohody, v dalsom udoli mini jazierko. Slnko riadne pecie. Zatial som stretol nula turistov a ... read more

Opustam fajn ubytko a smer blizka bus stanica. Vcera som este kukal ako je na tom okres zabljak, bo skoro vsetky severne a vychodne okresy su uz uzavrete, kvoli virusu. Zabljak nastastie zatial nie. Podla https://www.balkanviator.com/en/ By mal ist priamy spoj do zabljak, no neni tomu tak. Musim ist do niksic a tam zobrat dalsi spoj. Odteraz sa riadim uz len spojmi zo stranky https://busticket4.me Ta ma reklamy na kazdej bus stanici, no i tak som zatial nikoho nevidel v mikrobusoch, zeby mal cez nich kupeny listok. Klasicke busy som tu zatial jazdit nevidel, vsetko obsluhuju mirkobusy roznych rocnikov. V buse opat bez rusky. Ideme cez budvu, podgoricu a konecna je v niksice, kde vystupujeme len dvaja. Bus stanica prazdna, v okienku kupujem dalsi listok. Mikrobus mi ide az o dve hodiny. To mi staci na ... read more

After breakfast at our apartment in Kotor we hopped into the car and set off for the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Durmitor National Park. After driving for a while on good quality new roads we wondered when they would run out….and discovered the answer not long after as we pulled up behind some cars. The cars had obviously been stationary for quite some time as people were milling around. After we’d been sitting there for a while I hopped out of the car and walked to the front of the traffic jam to see what the hold up was. There were concrete barriers blocking the road… As one of the cars at the front of the traffic jam was a taxi I figured we’d be moving at some stage so headed back to the car. On ... read more

Leaving Lake Skadar we drove to the beautiful Durmitor National Park via Niksic and Ostrog Monastery. The monastery is high up and built into the cliff face, originally built in the 17th century but after earthquakes not much of the original remains and it mostly dates from the 1920s. It’s a very popular place, lots of people visiting on coach tours. It’s Serbian Orthodox and houses the remains of Saint Basil so is a place of pilgrimage. Great views over the valley way down below. Watched a baptism service at the tiny church down the hill, the priest and family marched round and round the church, singing hymns. We stayed in the village of Zabljak on the edge of Durmitor NP, a small village with shops and lots of accommodation; I believe it’s a popular place ... read more

Rano odkrylismy kolejne zalety naszej lokalizacji. Od 7.00 polana zalana jest sloncem, szybko schnie trawa. Male pieski wygrzewaja sie w cieple. Dwie wesole krowy buszuja po obejsciu. Odgania je rozmawiajacy bezustannie przez komorke ojciec rodziny w bialym dresiku w kancik i klapkach, ktory podjechal na poranna kontrole pań, ktore od rana w kaloszach i mini uwijaja sie przy naszym sniadaniu. Przygotowuja nam kubki ziolowej herbaty, najpyszniejsze na swiecie pampuchy i lokalny ser - kajmak. I przebojowe powidla sliwkowe - porownywalne do tych, ktore robi mama Asi. Po sniadaniu probujemy zazyc ruchu, w tym celu fotografujemy mape ze szklami, bo nie sa one zuplenie znaczone i wychodzimy troche w gory, ale po trzech godzinach wracamy wiedzac, ze i tak nigdzie nie dojdziemy, bo zadni z nas wspinacze, nie mamy sprzetu i chyba nie chce nam sie bardzo ... read more
