Europe » Montenegro May 6th 2021

Thailand (round 1): -I took a 24-hour overnight train to Bangkok, stayed 6 days with a host wonderful host named Tuck, met several other Americans working abroad here, started running again, and indulged in the cheap food, drink, and shopping. -I took a 14-hour sleeper train to Chiang Mai, a popular destination in the north. Here I stayed at a hostel for $3/night, overindulged in pad thai and tom yum, visited dozens of buddhist temples, and attended a meditation group. I also splurged on a one-day elephant trek in the jungle, where I got to feed, ride, and play with 6 wonderful elephants. We even bathed them in a river by a waterfall, splashing them with buckets of water and getting sprayed graciously in return. One of my favorite stops on the trip so far. -I ... read more

Europe » Montenegro » Podgorica May 6th 2021

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

Europe » Montenegro » Podgorica July 12th 2020

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

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

Z ubytka vypadavam nieco pred 8/00 a hrrr sa do ulic stareho mesta. Takto rano prakticky ludoprazdne. Kamenne uzke ulicky, pozatvarane obchodicky, restiky. Fajn kostolik aj s pevnostou. Nakuknutie na plaz hned za hradbami, tam restika, more ciste. Pri vonkajsich hradbach uz otvorene restiky a prvy kavickari. Domaci si objednaju jednu kavicku ci vodu a vydrzia pri tom sediet aj hodinu. Ja si davam capucino v restike hemingway pri vrchnej promenade. Vzdy tam bolo plno. Kava vsak dost horka na mna, mliekova pena super. Bus do kotoru mi ide o par minut. Klasika na stanici kupeny listok s 1€ prirazkou, listok pipnuty o citacku kodu a uz som na perone. Na tejto stanici moc rusky nedodrzuju. Prichadza fajn mikkrobus, opat nik rusky a smer kotor. Cesta bezproblemova. V kotore som uz o 1000. Check in je ... read more

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

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
