Zdravo, hello! What a week! Heaven exists, friends, and it’s here in Kotor, Montenegro. Have you been here? What an absolute stunner. One of the prettiest medieval Old Towns you’ve ever seen AND a bay the most incredible color you’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to share more of this exquisite destination with you.
This week has been about getting here and settling in. We have rain today and tomorrow, so I got in some fun tourist things this week, including a 3-hour speedboat tour through Boka Bay (aka the Bay of Kotor) and many wanders through the Old Town. There’s always something new to see there, even if it is crowded.
I’ve found the local bakery, the local farmer’s market (different from the one in front of Old Town Kotor), the supermarket (always an adventure). I’ve learned a few things about shopping (e.g., if you are signaling that you want one of something, use your thumb, not your index finger). I can sort-of say a few words (they say Ciao for Bye, and often say Allo for Hello, so that makes things a bit easier). Being a pedestrian here is interesting—everyone walks in the road, and the cars (especially taxis) don’t stop. It’s a bit unnerving, especially in the evening, but somehow, it works.
I can’t wait to show you where I’m staying, but that is going to have to wait a bit (sigh, safety first). Suffice it to say that I’m right on the water, and the swimming was glorious. With the heavy rain and thunderstorms today and tomorrow (reason to be glad for an extended visit—this isn’t devastating. I’m just using the time to write and get some work done), blazing beach days are winding down. I’m looking forward to cooler weather for more sightseeing next week. Stay tuned!
Are we Instagram friends yet?
If you want to see what I’m seeing here in Kotor, as I’m seeing it, let’s be Instagram friends! You can find me (@wonderandsundry), and be sure to look out for my stories (there’s a highlight, too).
- In Travel, I’ll share some of the highlights from Kotor thus far.
- For Eat, I’m not quite sure yet. I might share about food here, but I might also share about cooking in a tiny, shared kitchen.
- Sundry Wonders might be a bit of an enthusiastic overshare. I hope you won’t mind too much.
Until then, let’s catch up on posts below.
