My friend Nono came to visit London from Zambia and we planned a quick trip to Croatia (post coming very soon, I promise!) While there we saw we could do a day trip to Montenegro with a tour guide so we jumped at the opportunity to see somewhere new!
The bus came to pick us up from our hotel at 8.30am on the Thursday morning, passports – check, camera – check, and off we went!It was about an hour’s drive to the border, and in that time the guide explained to us a bit about the
history of Montenegro, Croatia and other surrounding countries. The richness of their history is just fascinating. The time flew by and in no time we were across the border, and stopped at the prettiest little cafe/restaurant in Kostanjica. If you do this drive I would absolutely recommend stopping at this spot, it’s just gorgeous.
After our short break we continued our drive to the town of Kotor. On arrival we met with a tour guide for a whistle-stop tour of the old town. It was a lovely little place, but absolutely BOILING! A tour at high noon was definitely not a good idea, but the guide was sure to do most of the talking in the shade and we walked quickly between the pretty sights.
Once the tour was done, we were glad to find some respite from the sun in a gorgeous little restaurant with its own secret garden. Food was absolutely delicious, we started with prosciutto and I had the king prawn linguine as my main…now that’s what you call a king prawn!
All too quickly it was time to get back on the tour bus and head to the next spot: Budva. This seaside town would be our final stop on the tour.
We walked around the beach area curious to see what the town had to offer. Many locals seemed just as curious about us, two black girls, and often stopped to stare – some even asked to take pictures!
Soon it was time to get back on the bus and head home…well, to the hotel. It was a fun but very long day so soon we were fast asleep in our seats as the driver whisked us back to Dubrovnik.
Have any of you guys been to Montenegro? Let me know in the comments below! I’m already looking forward to my next holiday 😀
