Kotor

We arrived late in Kotor Bay after the bus journey from Albania took a couple of hours longer than expected because of the border. We woke up and wandered through the cobbled streets of Kotor Old Town which is full of little streets which connect big open squares, with restaurants and cafes. After breakfast in … Continue reading Kotor

Albanian visit

Departing Heathrow on Friday evening we flew to Belgrade with Air Serbia, landing just before midnight. With over six hours to wait we wandered around departures until we stumbled upon some comfy, sofa-like chairs. We push a few of them together to make a bed, set an alarm and went to sleep. Harri was out … Continue reading Albanian visit

Inle hot springs

Having seen everything on Inle Lake that we wanted to we decided we would explore some of the surrounding area and chose to cycle to some natural hot springs about 12km away. We hired some dodgy bikes from our hotel (mine only had one brake working) and set off. When we got there mid-morning we … Continue reading Inle hot springs

Inle Lake

Today we woke at six, packed, had breakfast and checked out before seven. At 0700 we clambered aboard an 11m long wooden boat which would be our vehicle for the majority of the day and then we set off through a swarm of lilies, along a canal, onto Inle Lake. As soon as we hit … Continue reading Inle Lake

Despite the time, we were approached by a number of taxi drivers asking for … Continue reading Vineyard adventures
