What a lovely hotel. The staff at reception are delightful: smiling, helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and full of character. Breakfast was excellent. This is a splendid place to stay, and is literally round the corner from the site of Franz Ferdinand's assassination.

We eventually made it to our destination Mostar and stayed with our newest ...
... everyone just got off while we sat there... because we had absolutely no idea what was going on. Luckily one of the passengers spoke good English and told us the bus was kaput and we had to get off and wait for another bus to be sent for us. Ah the unspoken joys of travelling.
We had a bit of time to kill so I went into the petrol station to get a sandwich and snacks for our lunch on the side of the road. Bosnian gas station sandwich wasn't great... just a general ...
... to calm and collect your thoughts. As fun as visiting Sarajevo is, it can be mentally and emotionally exhausting - so much tragic history has transpired here that at some point, you need a fun diversion for a short time, to digest all that you have just learned about the cruel depths of depravity that humankind is capable of inflicting on others.
Beyond the teas, shisha, drinks, and desserts we had today, ...
