    Bosnia and Herzegovina

    July 6, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Left Cavtat, picked up hire car and set off for Trogir via Split....that WAS the plan! Our border crossing into Bosnia and Herzegovina and then back into Croatia (lasting about 20/30 mins) was without incident. We then deviated from the plan (ok my idea) and that delayed our journey considerably. Because of the time we had lost we decided to bypass Split in favour of finding our accommodation in Trogir. Entered our address into the GPS....and it took us somewhere completely different! Tried again and the GPS turned itself off! So we turned here and turned there and stopped to ask directions to discover we were 3 doors away from our accommodation 😊 Happy again! By now it is 6pm - sometimes you get days like that. On the bright side some breathtaking scenery along the coastal road. Al did a great job driving too. Thanks! Yet to explore Trogir so all for now.Read more

    Heading out of Cavtat

    July 6, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Picked up a hire car this morning to drive north. Al did a champion job driving a manual left hand drive! Managed to stay on the right side of the road. More amazing coastal scenery. Boarder crossing into 🇧🇦 Bosnia & Herzegovina ( Evie- new country to pin on your map!) then headed north again looking down on lush green farming valleys. Such a contrast to the starkness of the rocky mountains.

    Beautiful Sarajevo, Bosnia

    September 22, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Went to the bridge that sparked ww1 as someone was assassinated in July 1914.
    Had a wonder around Town, made some warmth purchases of a scarf and beanie.
    Then we were treated to a great dinner, Begove corba soup, Cevap for main and Tufahija for dessert.

    Tunnel of hope memorial

    September 23, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Visited a 20m portion of the tunnels used to keep Sarajevo alive during the Bosnia war in the 1990s.
    The tunnels were built in 1993 and were the only way to get supplies in to the city.

    9 people lost their life at this rose location.

    Discovering Sarajevo

    September 23, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Had a fun morning at a bobsled, abandoned and working.
    Spent a sobering afternoon at the museum of genocide and history.
    There is a wall of kind messages, a man made of bread symbolizing 100 life's lost in one day gunned down while waiting for bread.
    Got cheered up with coffee and food.
    Bought a few cool items, a sugar bowl and a gravy boat.

    Srebrenica Memorial

    September 24, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    So Srebrenica was meant to be a safe haven for all the people whom had now become a refugee in their own country. The UN said they would protect them but the promises fell through. The Serbian troops took over and there was a massacre.
    And this is just one location this happened. They are still finding locations of mass graves and giving peoples loved ones a final resting place.
    This memorial and grave site lays to rest over 6000 people.

    We had a guide that survived. He lost his father, his brother. He had people killed 4m away from him due to a shell falling during a soccer game. Even the aid packages from above would cause casualties. He had someone 10m away squashed as the parachute didn't open and the pallet fell straight down.

    It has been a beautiful, confronting, sobering experience through Bosnia and Herzegovina.
    So much hate led to so many deaths. It appears they're not matching hate with hate. Hopefully one day there may be peace.

    Even though we are tourists.
    I am here.
    I have listened.
    I have cried.
    I have loved.
    I care and I will take this understanding with me for the rest of my life.

    Bosnia & Herzegovina

    October 10, 2016 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Stopped off for a night in Neum to tick Bosnia off the list! Turned out to be the friendliest place, our host did all our washing (for free), cooked us amazing pancakes for breakfast and gave us a free lunch to take on our way.

    The coastal road was a dream and the highlight came when a random man flagged us down and proceeded to empty his crate of satsumas into our trailer.

    Don't cycle through old town Mostar.

    June 4, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    The initial impression of Bosnia revolved around the common place business activity - namely scrap car dealers. Must've been 10 in the first few miles. Following that it was mass snakeacide - 4 run over snakes within a mile. Clearly there are snakes around here but they don't have road sense. Great downhill into Mostar (45mph) then the ultimate tactical error - going through the old town with a fully laden bike wasn't smart. Narrow alleyways full of tourists & market stalls. As for getting over the old bridge - lethal - the cobbles were glass like. Massive uphill to the hotel - nice! What was nice was the pool. Happy days. Cooled off & then headed into town to take a closer look at the bridge - a world heritage monument. Very impressive especially from the river bank.Read more

    Hawkers still in bed!

    June 5, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Usual early start & by prior arrangement a breakie goody bag had been left for me. A massive barm cake, various toppings, fruit & a chocolate pudding. Happily sat outside scoffing & admiring the view of Mostar. Kicked off at just after 7am & headed for my first detour Blagaj Ottoman Dervish site. Basically a site of religious importance at a natural spring. Passed kids going to school - HA! Got there in no time - well just under an hour & it was deserted. The hawkers huts were boarded up, restaurants closed - I had a free reign to go where I wanted for photos. Went up the reserved area for diners only - and could see why - but not for me today...Read more

    Not bad as swim specs go.

    June 5, 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    It was always in my plans to try & visit Kravica Falls. With now following the cycle route through S. Bosnia it would have been rude not to - that said it was another 10 miles or so, not allowing for dirt track detours of which there were a couple. On one said detour I ended up racing a kid up a hill (him on foot) he found it hilarious. I was just knackered. The climb out of the valley was hard only to discover my gears were knackered. Everything off & running repairs - hopefully the last of the day. With all this the falls had to be something special. They didn't disappoint. A Scottish couple warned that the water was refreshing - a euphemism for fucking freezing if ever there was one & for a Jock to think it's cold... Wasn't too bad.Read more
