Herceg Novi, Montenegro

A day trip to another country

sunny 85 °F

After the Verm sorted out the rental car, Robin packed up our lunch, and Kevin sorted the directions, we headed out towards Montenegro. The drive took us over some crazy dirt roads and through some gnarly construction but we eventually made it to the border! We didn’t exactly know what we were going to do or see in Montenegro, but the sound of going for a ‘day trip’ to another country was pretty exciting. With big smiles on our face, we rolled up to the border crossing guard who promptly asked us where we were going. Silence fell over the car when we didn’t remember any of the city names in Montenegro. Shocked with us, the guard said with his thick Croatian accent “So you don’t know where you are going?” … After a bit of chuckling and fumbling through our directions, we found the name of the city, and were allowed in.

We toured around the streets and couldn’t help but notice how large everyone was. The locals were at least 6’2” and muscular, including the women! It wasn’t until we made it up to Kanli Kula Fortress when we learned that this relatively new country (2006) was using the Euro currency… and we didn’t actually have any! We talked our way into an acceptable exchange and headed through the fortress gates and up to the top for a better view of which beach we wanted to swim at.

We picked our spot and headed down to the rocky shoreline. We basically spent the rest of the day lounging on the beach and perfecting our synchronized diving.
