Flag of Serbia and Montenegro  , Budva,
Saturday, June 7, 2008

Big ol' bus journey to Montenegro, shared with numerous traveller types including a mad Japanese lady and some Austalian chicks that had been overcharged on their fare and were in a bit of financial strife.

At each major bus stop along the way the travellers were greeted to hordes of people offering rooms, so we were confident that all would be well at our stop - however this was not to be. Not a single toothless woman to be seen, a few metres walking wondering what to do, and one did trot along - she spoke to English, but led us to a place where another woman came out to help, and then eventually a girl who sorted us out with a room, and a decent room it was too.

Then we wondered into town, via the beach - the fast food collection was pretty extreme, the beach not so good. Old town was small, but enjoyable.

European Championship started today and we were looking forward to the atmosphere over here - however few places seemed to have a screen, and even in the English pub the atmosphere wasnt good. Did speak to a decent American chap who suggested a bar for us later that evening, complete with bikini clad dancers. It was too early for us for this type of thing so we left him too it and er, went to another big bar with skimpily dressed dancers. Rat moaned about the noise so we went to a quiet place next door and drank far to many beers and the local rum, whilst I made a fool of myself talking to the staff. Come three o clock we went to Trocadero club, which had no dance floor and played a lot of turkish sounding music - was good, but not really my cup of tea.

An enjoyable evening in an enjoyable town.

Next day we caught a bus to Kotor, which again had a nice walled old town, but rathe than being set on the coast, this place is by the side of a big lake / fjord. The highlight was climbing a load of steps to a fortification on the top. Even the torrential downpour didnt ruin things as halfway down the mountain we took shelter in a church and played cards with the two ozzies that we met the day before.

Back to Budva and a quiet night in watching the football.
