MONTENEGRO | Visiting Kotor & what i wore on holiday..

The view of Kotor from the San Giovanni castle

As many of you are probably aware from the photos plastered all over my Instagram, I managed to persuade my boyfriend to visit Montenegro with me. It's a place that kept popping up from time to time and because the pictures looked so beautiful and i'd not heard of anyone i know visiting, i really got it into my head that i wanted to go. My 2016 new years resolution was to visit at least 2 new places every year and i'm someone who likes to try something new, I don't want to go to the same holiday destinations you hear people going on every year - Tenerife, Prague, Dubai (Although i do really want to visit Dubai to see what its all about but i've decided to push it back) I want to try new places and experience different cultures. I'm not really big on visiting the Americas apart from Cuba, i'd like to try Jamaica and Barbados too as my boyfriend is half Jamaican. But i really want to visit most of Asia.

There was only 2 slight negatives about Montenegro - the locals aren't really used to tourists just yet and there was quite an awkward language barrier, but at the end of the day, we are visiting their country, so why should we expect them to speak english to us? The food wasn't the best either - i think there was 2 nights we really enjoyed our dinner, the further you get into town the better the selection of food. It's also very meaty, especially pork, so not the best for Vegetarians and a lot of countries that don't eat pork - my boyfriend doesn't eat pork and to be honest i'm not a fan of bacon, ham or chorizo either. However, this will be a massive bonus for all you meat lovers!

BUT the views, nature and weather completely out weighed all the cons. It averaged about 26/27 degrees when we were there, which is plenty for me! The old town was beautiful and the mountains surrounding the whole town of Kotor was incredible. The tough climb to the top of the mountain was totally worth it!

Overall, we had a great time! Thinking to go back in a few years once i've visited a few more places and will probably visit either Budva or Podgorica this time. I think Budva is more touristy with beach parties etc where as Kotor is more of a beautifulquiet old town which is exactly what i was looking for.... Thanks Montenegro, was a pleasure!

Give thanks,
much love,
