The food is shockingly good, it's the cheapest city we've been to by far, and aside from the fact that we're now in the Cyrillic alphabet and I can't tell anyone where I live - it's a clean and cool place to be. Kind of has a 90's grungey feel that I really dig. Also - the fashion is still in the 90's and makes for some serious people watching. Jorts anyone? At risk of actually saving some money in this cheap city, I made the last minute decision to hop to Montenegro for a long weekend and get away from everyone for a few days. I also had my brother's 2nd visit which always takes a few days to recover from.
Below are some of the pictures from the last few weeks. On the line-up for this week: BBQ, escape room, going away party, and traveling to Croatia where I'll meet up with my parents for a week!
|Sunset over the Sava river. About one mile to the right is where the|
Sava & Danube rivers connect. Those boats across the river from our dinner
are all nightclubs that rage every night of the week.
|This was where I spent a good chunk of my time in Montenegro, another small|
Balkan country on the coastline.
|Montenegro is BEAUTIFUL. I've been told it looks a lot like Split, Croatia|
which is where I head next weekend. It's still off the grid as far as tourism
goes which makes for a nice relaxing weekend away.
|I took a little cruise around the coast and stopped in a few port towns. This|
Church called "Lady of the Rocks" is built in the middle of the water on
a man-made island made of rocks and sunken enemy ships.
|This is the view of the fort from the other side of the Sava. A few of us spent|
the afternoon at this club/pool called Hot Mess to wait out the heat.
|We also attended Belgrade Beer fest which is the largest in South East|
Europe. Whatever that means. Spoiler alert family : Todd has a girlfriend
|Better than beer fest was our discovery that there was an amusement|
park just behind the vendors. Cue drunken rainbow ride selfie.
|This past weekend we headed to the South of Serbia to explore this working|
monastery (which is actually a convent so, as always I'm confused by
|The tour also felt this massive waterfall was worth a stop.|
|The highlight of the trip was this massive cave we explored at the end|
of the day. The pictures don't do it justice and I can't say much about it
because our guide only knew the words stalagmite and stalagtite.
|Finally we had a little Sunday Funday at the local man-made lake|
called Lake Ada. Played some catch, had beers, and just laid out around
