Kotor is one of those places that once you see it, you can’t understand how you’ve never heard of it.
Molly and I became fascinated with Macedonia during our five day trip. It’s an ethnically diverse and historically fascinating country that has played a significant role in every great European civilization.
Belgrade has quickly become one of our favorite European cities. Belgrade is not as visually stunning as other European capitals, but with so many gorgeous parks, lively cafes and friendly people you’ll want for nothing.
The Saturday morning farmers market in Kotor is something I look forward to every week. Besides the colorful bounty and bustle of the market itself, the location is spectacular.
I’ve been thinking about favorite days in Europe now that we are almost half way through our trip. Here’s the little list I came up with:
The World’s Only Evaluation Method That Places Equal Importance On Sleeping and Eating As It Does On The Price of a Beer.
Although I rarely buy junk food at home, I can’t get enough of other countries’ crappy, processed foods and I try them often. Jaffa cakes look like a winning cookie combo of orange and chocolate but they have the consistency of old sponge.
Every day we admire the Mediterranean color palette of our surroundings – the white stone, terracotta rooftops, turquoise and emerald ocean, plus the steep dark mountains that give Montenegro its name. And yet despite this, our life here keeps popping up red.
No place can be understood from a single visit nor through a single book, but combining the two opens up the past in a way history alone often can’t.
If you, like me, didn’t even know Montenegro was a country (don’t beat yourself up, it’s actually one of the newest countries in the world) you might appreciate a quick primer.
