    Podgorica, Dom und Markthalle

    November 9 in Montenegro

    Morgens sind wir nochmal in die Stadt und haben uns den Dom angeschaut. Aussen zwar mächtig aber auch schlicht, innen glänzt er golden mit vielen Abbildungen.

    Danach wollten wir noch etwas einkaufen und auf dem Weg lag die Podgorica Mall. Wir konnten daneben parken und dabei entdeckten wir direkt davor eine große Markthalle. Supertoll.

    FK Budućnost - Rudar

    September 19 in Montenegro

    Das war wohl der zweite Satz mit X der Tour. Irgendwie scheint Podgorica kein gutes Pflaster für mich zu sein. Die Liga hat einfach mal den gesamten Spielplan über den Haufen geworfen, und das auf einem Mittwoch. Ich machte mich trotzdem rechtzeitig auf den Weg in die montenegrische Hauptstadt, denn im Internet gibt's geteilte Meinungen über den Anpfiff des Spiels. Vorher aber hole ich mir noch fix das kostenlose Frühstück in der Unterkunft ab. Und dann selbst vor Ort ist es nicht ganz einfach. Als ich im Fanshop fragte, wann denn nun Anpfiff ist und wo ich Karten kaufen kann (normalerweise gibt es diese dort), wurde ich nur dumm angeschaut und bekam direkt die Gegenfrage, wer denn überhaupt spielt, die Nationalmannschaft oder Budućnost (übrigens ein verdammt schweres Wort, ich kann es immernoch nicht aussprechen).
    Zu allem Überfluss erfuhr ich dann auch noch, dass es freien Eintritt geben wird.
    Naja was soll's. Das Stadion ist immerhin ganz cool, aber wer hätte es gedacht, kaum Zuschauer aufgrund der Anstoßzeit da.
    Und nun der Höhepunkt, das Spiel endet mehr als langweilig mit 0:0.
    Danke für Nichts!

    Apartments Aerodom

    September 26 in Montenegro

    In Podgorica angekommen, fuhr ich direkt mit dem Taxi weiter zu meiner Unterkunft. Diese ist nur 2 Kilometer vom Flughafen entfernt, was für einen frühen Flug sehr praktisch ist.
    Dort angekommen, dauert es ein wenig bis ich in die Wohnung konnte, aber dann öffnete die Mutter das Gastgeberin mir die Tür.
    Die Wohnung ist mega klasse. Super groß, mit Küche, Wohnzimmer, Bad und Schlafzimmer! Die Küche voll ausgestattet. Sehr sehr cool.
    Also war klar, heute geh ich nirgends essen, sondern mach mir was.
    Da hier direkt um die Ecke ein Supermarkt ist, führte mich mein nächster Weg dorthin. Ein paar Nudeln, Ketchup, Bier und ab ins Apartment.
    Danach gab es dann auch schon Essen und nun werde ich den Abend entspannt ausklingen lassen. Die Gastgeberin wollte noch vorbeikommen, um zu klären wann sie mich zum Flughafen bringen soll (Super nett von ihr!!).

    Crossing more borders to Montenegro

    October 29, 2017 in Montenegro

    It was a relaxing morning for a change! We had a lovely balcony so managed to get some sun before we spent the rest of the day travelling!

    We arrived at the “bus station” to get the bus over to Montenegro - the taxi driver just dropped us off at the side of the road so we had no idea where to go. After asking a few people and hotel receptionists, we were none the wiser. A fairly friendly looking guy offered us a lift for €30 which was slightly more than the non existent bus so we thought it was a good idea. We arrived at his old Mercedes (couldn’t be any other car in albania could it) and we were on our way! He was very chatty considering we didn’t understand what he was on about. I think he was mentioning the terrible traffic, corrupt police and something about busses... it was a quick journey across the border which was great but unfortunately we were faced with very bad traffic going into Podgorica which took forever. Thankfully our friendly driver had ran out of things to say!

    We spent most of the rest of the day looking into car rentals etc but explored a little in the evening. The city didn’t seem too exciting and I got a bit of a weird unfriendly vibe from the people. A cute little dog made our day though as he came around with us as we walked all around the city. We called him Jack and when we stopped in at a bar for a drink we lost him. Amazingly though he found us back at our hostel like 2 hours later! Adorable, wish we could keep him :)

    Another good thing about the city- we found a great little restaurant with amazing pizzas and pasta and live music! Although, it’s so strange that smoking is still allowed inside everywhere here- didn’t like that too much.

    Good news is we got a good deal for a car rental at only €37 a day and the guy dropped it off for us this evening so we’re all set for another road trip tomorrow morning! Yay!

    Transit

    November 14, 2017 in Montenegro

    We had to check out by 10 even though the hostel is practically empty so we just waited in reception for an hour before going to the station.
    Bought our tickets and on we got the bus but first Will went and got a bottle of water - he came back laughing. As he was walking past the shop a man came out of one of the offices to go somewhere and he beckoned .... suddenly 3 cats waltz out :) they had a box and chair to sleep in for the mean time until he came back hah
    It was a 2 hour ride and I slept the entire way. I don't know at what time I go to bed last night but I know at 5:38 I was still wide awake lol.
    Arrived at Podgorica and luckily we walked the way we did because the plan was to meet the Bnb owners dad at the house. As we were walking a man approached us and said hi are you looking for bojana. Firstly, lucky we didn't brush him off because it's normally annoying taxi driers who approach you at stations and secondly luckily i knew our hosts name cause Will didn't have a clue. Yes, we wanted bojana 👍🏼
    He drove us to the house.
    The outside of the building is so ugly. The corridors smell like bubblegum.
    The lift to get up to the 5th level is so dodgy lol hopefully
    It doesn't break during our stay.

    We just chilled

    It's a cozy little apartment.
    We went to the shops to buy some basics then came back and both had a 5 hour sleep lol oops.
    I've wipped out my sleeping bag because it's cold.
    I cooked us hotdogs for dinner which would have been lovely if the bread wasn't stale 😒
    We both showered and then watched Big Bang for hours on the laptop. Unfortunately the Tvs sound isn't working for some reason so the dad is gonna drop by tomorrow to have a look.
    It's 3:30am and now it's finally time for bed. ☺️

    Podgorica

    November 15, 2017 in Montenegro

    Goood sleep :)

    So we did nothing all day😂😂
    I looked at work aways and that was the only thing I'd consider productive.

    Our tv doesn't work so the dad came and took it to get fixed.
    We were like it's fine don't woryy about and he just kept saying "no I MUST fix it" - he was very cute.
    Off he went to get it fixed. How very efficient lol.
    Within 30 minutes he was back. He fiddled with it for 30 minutes and made 2 phones calls and hey presto - the sound came on 🎉 off he went lol.

    We went out for dinner - we put a Chinese place into our map but along the way we came across a Hard Rock Cafe so we popped in there. We didn't spend a cent today so the prices evened out to be ok lol.
    The mango berry cooler was there 🎉🎉🎉 (had it in Poland)
    We had chicken wings and I had bruschetta. Food I actually wanted 😭😭
    The waiter was unfortunately very good so we felt obligated to tip because he was going out of his way.
    Damn lol
    Walked home and I fell asleep on the couch. William the complete dickhead woke me up at 1am by tickling my face so I opened my eyes and he was standing over me and I screamed.
    Heart rate was through the roof.

    Thanks to the big idiot I was then wide awake and watched pride and prejudice. I liked it much more than when I saw it with mothers group lol
    If I hadn't made myself read the book I probably still wouldnt have got it.
    Just proud of myself cause it proved I understood the book correctly haha

    We Skyped Jess and Jaxon kept trying to hug the phone 😭❤️

    Podgorica

    November 16, 2017 in Montenegro

    I had an hour long bath/shower this morning trying to sort out my birds nest which is getting worse and worse by the day. My hair has actually died. I want to buy treatment stuff but it's like 10€ 😑boo.
    We went to the shopping center down the road and fun fact - Montenegro does not have a single fast food chain which is outrageous because Iraq had McDonalds and Afghanistan has KFC.
    Only option was some cafe thing. Eh.
    Didn't really want fast food but I'm more pointing out the chance of them having a food court is laughable.
    I found a random souvenir store and took my chance and bought a magnet because it's unlikely I'll find another place to get it.
    I got a cat bottle opener. We have literally done nothing in this country so it's the only relevant thing I could get.

    We bought pasta and sauce for us to make ourselves dinner with tonight and went home.

    1 season of Big Bang was watched today 😂

    We cooked the pasta but the stove is really bad so the water never reached boiling? Sections were overcooked and others were not cooked enough. It was pretty crap, but cheap so whatever.

    We did another load of washing and hung them up outside. Will is out of long pants so he has put on my track pants but they are too short so he looks like a dill.

    Another beautifully lazy day.
    As tomorrow will be 😂
