10 Days till Montenegro


Yesterday marked 10 days until we are off to explore Montenegro, the pearl of the Mediterranean. To say we are excited is an understatement, and although we do reside in the beautiful countryside, sometimes without any reason it’s nice to get away. (Travelling around the world is our end goal after all!)

So why did we choose Montenegro?

Well to start with, this was a surprise trip as Kate had done extremely well with her Fine Art Degree.. what better excuse to travel? First I began browsing a world map and then searching for anywhere I hadn’t heard much about.. which led me to Montenegro. A place jammed packed full of history and natural beauty. (often called the Pearl of the Mediterranean). The landscapes are varied from white beaches to the green mountainsides with crystal clear lakes and pristine forest that lurk in between.

Montenegro is quite small and lies in the middle of the Balkans, in the Adriatic Sea. This small country packs a big punch and tourists are just recently discovering it all after years of neglect during former Yugoslavia’s war. The best part is that the natural beauty remains largely unspoiled due to the lack of the ‘tourism boom’.

Visitors are able to take a glimpse into yesterday with quaint fishing villages and historic walled cities, it’s said to almost be like you’re in another century.

We will soon update on what we discover, where we go.. BUT – is there a secret place we shouldn’t miss? Let us know..

    Can’t believe it’s only 10 days (or even less now!) until you go, seems like it was only yesterday you were writing about going in a few months! Can’t wait to hear about everything you get up to while you’re there – hope it’s as good as it sounds!

      Thanks Catherine, I’m sure by the amount of people I’ve spoken to about Montenegro, it’ll be mind blowing.. We have nothing really booked apart from a car to explore and some river rapids that we’ll be making a separate post about. Here’s hoping we inspire you and Ian to follow our foot steps 🙂

      Hi Andrew, unfortunately we are going to be visiting Dubrovnik on our spare day, otherwise we would take you up on the tip.

      We are absolutely in love with Montenegro! We have seen and experienced so much already.. we never want to leave. I think the highlight for me so far has to be the white water rafting along Lake Tara just across the Bosnian border.. such beauty!

    I spent a few days in Montenegro while living in Dubrovnik, and it was absolutely lovely! We drove down the coast and went to Podgorica and stayed the night. The people in the city were very friendly and the downtown/beach area was very nice. The next day we stopped by a monastery built onto a mountainside, that was pretty cool too! I can’t wait to hear how your trip goes and see some photos 🙂
