I'm Back with a Vacay Update

Remember 3 months ago when I was sharing some photos I took on our September trip to Europe. Yeah, probably not. It's been a really long time since the last post but I promise there's a reward for sticking around. I have some big news to share once the travel tale comes to an end. I promise it will be worth the wait. For today, a peek around Croatia and Montenegro.

Sailing into the port of Kotor, Montenegro is breath taking. The Bay of Kotor (or Boca Bay) is considered Europe's southernmost fjord. Fjords are something I thought only existed in Scandinavia.

We participated in similar activities in all the cities we visited in Montenegro and Croatia (Kotor, Dubrovnik, and Hvar) - climb to the top of the wall that circles the city, oohh and aahh over how pretty the view is and how cute the city is, relax at a cafe and drink coffee, and do a little bit of shopping.

Here are a couple shots of Dubrovnik (the two photos above are of Kotor, Montenegro), notice the similarity - walled in city, beautiful views:

I left Montenegro feeling like I have to return some time soon. They country is gorgeous and I'm really interested in exploring more of it, one afternoon was not enough. Dubrovnik sort of felt like the Disney World version of a Croatian city. It's very pretty but it was so clean and full of tourists that I really have no idea what it might be like to actually live in Croatia.
