It’s been awhile again again since my last update in here, but after such a fun trip with a bunch of friends, I couldn’t keep my fingers off my laptop. So here we go! Massive thanks to Martin Freinademetz from RedBull Romaniacs for lending us the old Fiat. It did the job 🙂
One of the unfortunate cities that was bombed heavily in the balkan wars back in the early to mid ’90s.
By no means an racist, I just thought this was comical 🙂
This tunnel was built in Sarajevo next to the Airport (which was US controlled) in ’93 in order for the Bosnians to get supplies past the Serbs. The guy on the picture is Harald, a friend from Austria.
Serbian snipers were apparently using these tombstones as shields while shooting at the Bosnians in Sarajevo. Ironically, this graveyard is a jewish graveyard and one must admit that the jews never had it too easy. Neither in life or the after life 🙁
We came across this icecold river in a boiling Fiat and couldn’t resist a quick cool-down!
P14 was the next scenic route we decided to take. P14 sounded like a boyband name, so that’s what we were when we met people along the way 🙂
Amazing countries for Enduro riding, but better be careful to avoid the landmine areas! These firecrackers have still not been removed and its said that around 40 % of these countries still have landmines spread out. Toxic.
I was driving and everyone else was sleeping, so I missed an exit and ended up on the scenic routes. Interesting!
Incredible colours in this sunset while trying to finish our scenic route expedition over cracked bridges, hairpin turns and pot holes everywhere.
Just before the Montenegrin border, we found a camp site for the night. This is hugely popular for rafting. Me Grady (Australia) and Harry jumped in for a fresh morning shower.
This Fiat Ducato did the job! Probably 2000 km going from Sibiu (RO) – Belgrade (SRB) – Sarajevo (BiH) – Zlabjak (MNE) – Kotor (MNE) – Dubrovnik (CRO) – Mostar (CRO) – Romania. Not to forget the extra trip from the Romanian border back to Belgrade cause Shane’s passport was expired!
Just after driving into Montenegro. Stunning!
Get lost and find this!!!
These roads and views!
Just go there 🙂
Nice place to rest if you had too many beers 🙂
More Montenegro mountains.
Me and a sign. Shortly after this Tim and Mike (Kiwis) jumped off in Zlabjak and me Grady Shane and Harry continued south to the Adriatic sea.
A berry selling kid who just made 5 Euro!
This is Kotor. Ridiculous images.
TONS and TONS of tourists storm this city every year. Too much.
Postcardish kind of prettiness.
Back in the day when life was b&w… Or.
Nice hiking trail to the top!
Me and the montenegrin flag on top of the castle of San Giovanni.
Grady thinking about Australia.
Grady and Harry skinny dipping.
And chatting up innocent girls!
Big and small.
Sunset from the village Rose.
And another one.
A guy in a kayak passing through the blue lagoon and Harry about to jump.
Again… too many people. Must be amazing to be there in a time of year with just half the people.
Mamula island fort. Some jerks had dragged a giant speaker and music on land and played extremely loud music while seeming totally unaffected. The music was deafning and literally spoiled the experience a bit.
Entrance to Mamula.
View to the mountains we came driving down from the day before.
Tourists en mas.
Inside the fortress of Mamula.
One of the most important cities in the region of Dalmatia on the Adriatic Sea. Amazing city that I will have to come back and explore some other time.
And a women that has a dry sense of humor or doesn’t understand english 🙂
The famous city Mostar, where a beautiful bridge was bombed. The bridge was built in the 16th century and stood for 427 years until the croat forces bombed it during the croat-bosnian aka orthodox-muslim war or whatever happened. I’m still trying to figure out what the deal was!
Tons of tourists!
