... to an island resort so he bought the island!
This is evidently a resort coast. We reached Kotor at 0928, nestled amongst some mountains in a bay. We were at the bus station 2M later and whisked to the Hotel Marija 2 by taxi, about a 5M ride. Our rendezvousis at 1130 re walking to town, having lunch and getting supplies for the boat ride. Swimming is an option.

... and cleans for the guests. Pretty sweet setup, and a really nice family.
One of the days we went to Kotor, a tiny town just up the coast from Budva. There is a nice old town and a bunch of ruins on the hill above the city.
