Balkans Holiday Revisited - Day 10-11

Day 10 & 11 Kotor

Our B&B was run by the assistant manager of the Montenegrin football team. He'd not long returned from Cardiff where they'd beaten Wales! We had a room up in the attic, there was no window over the bay but we had the whole floor to ourselves which included a kitchen/diner & free wifi for €30 again. There was a private terrace outside and the water in the bay was just beautiful for swimming in, which is what I was doing when taking this photo.

Kotor is a 10 minutes walk around the bay. Along the quayside, large yachts and small cruise ships moor up each day. Overlooking it is the fortress high on the hill above and protecting walls run down either side of the town. These are lit up and night and , with their reflections are a dramatic sight.

The first morning we walked, or should I say trudged up the steep and long path to the fortress.

It was quite a relief to have a sit down at the top. We were very glad to have taken water with us as it was a hot & sticky climb.

It was worth every step for the views. As you see it was a long way down!

but the views of the bay were magnificent

I found going back down harder than going up as it was steep and very uneven.

At the bottom we had a bit of a soft drink pub crawl. It took us a couple of litres each to feel rehydrated! Kotor is full of bars and restaurants, tucked away in little squares. It's a great place to stay though the old town itself is traffic free. There are hotels in there but if you stay the bikes would have to be parked on the quayside.

This was only our second day off the bikes in about 1500 miles & we decided to spend another day in Kotor. Our second day there was spent in total relaxation, sunbathing & swimming off the terrace, catching up with the internet & reading. Oh and eating and drinking plenty! It really was an idyllic spot.
