No modern conveniences in Prokosko Jezero

Located 1670 meters above sea level this shepherd town with no electricity attracts tourists during spring and summer. When winter hits, the entire town is covered in snow forcing the inhabitants to take their flocks and reside in towns at the base of the mountain. The scenic mountaintop is perfect for hiking but don’t expect modern conveniences!

Travnik and Jajce, victim to charm

Jajce (pronounced yai-suh) is a 14th century city of history and charm known for its trademark 59 foot waterfall where the Pliva River flows into the Vrbas River. And this isn’t some little trickle: even when standing at the observation points around the base of the falls you’re guaranteed to get misted or even truly soaked.

You probably never heard of Blagaj

On our way to Dubrovnik, we stopped on the cliff side of Blagaj, Bosnia. I have no idea if this place holds an historic significance or if it’s just a photo op. Either way the place was gorgeous and I loved the water coming out of the cliff side and the way the restaurants show cased it.

Buda-bye – Mostar

Mostar translates to ‘bridge’ in English, and the city was highlighted by its infamous arched bridge. It was warm enough to shed off my big winter coat, which is saying something for mid-November.

In the area surrounding the bridge, there were about six or seven mosques. My favorite moment of the Bosnia trip was standing on that bridge and listening to the call to prayer echoing through the mountains.
