Bike touring adventure in Montenegro
My geography has always been okay, but just a few months ago, I couldn't have told you where Montenegro was on the map. I wasn't even entirely convinced whether it was a country or not!
Here's my story about cycling across it!
The first was nice. An afternoon and night at the amazing Kravicka Waterfalls.
Which seemed to go on forever!
I was rewarded at the top though! Great views,
a dizzyingly high lunch spot,
and country number 9!
Most days started with a climb.
and glimpses into another way of life.
and even got used to the idea of farmers walking their cows and goats down a main road.
The rain continued at night so, still lacking a tent, I got quite ingenious at staying dry.
And dropped into what Montenegro's Tourism Board calls Europe's Grand Canyon...
I'd probably have to agree with them though!
I continued to meet very friendly people. This roadside chef made me try all his delicious food before sending me off with a sandwich.
I was then invited into the house of the Kurtagic family for two nights who taught me the definition of amazing hospitality.
Unfortunately Montenegro is a small country and my time there was over too quickly. I was happy to reach country number 10 (Serbia) however!
Even though it was only one hour later that I entered Kosovo (number 11)!
