Ostrog Monastery is carved in a cliff

We aren’t here to worship, we aren’t here on a pilgrimage, we are here because this is one of the major cultural attractions in Montenegro. No one has questioned our presence here, in fact the only attention we’ve had is from some Dutch tourists.

Sveti Stefan, beach beds not included

Sveti Stefan is a small islet with a 5-star hotel resort on the Adriatic Coast, just south of Budva. Its a beautiful resort with lovely beaches. Don’t expect a free beach bed and umbrella – it comes at a price of $75 per day. We enjoyed the views from above.

October in the Balkans

Kotor is a stunning fjord-like town with amazing mountains and deep green- blue water. In summer, we heard it was crammed. While we were there, it was super quiet – with only one cruise ship each day turning up for a few hours.
