Cruising the Bay of Kotor


There are numerous ways to explore Kotor.

Already in love with this place after exploring Kotor Old Town on foot,  I was keen to take the water approach and 'sea' how much better the views were from the water. There are public boats available in front of the Old Town you can take, but I chose a private boat tour with 360 Monte travel agency.

Here are are some visually immersive snaps of the Boka Bay.

Kotor Old Town, Montenegro



My Balkan trip started in Crna Gora; sitting on the Adriatic Sea with Mediterranean energy, it is often called Europe's most southernmost fjord.

I was super excited to start my journey in the land of mountains. Half of it is covered in thick forest, hence the name: Monte (mountain), negro (black).

Kotor is protected from the east by 20m hight fortification walls  ‘bulwarks’, from the west by the sea, from the North by the river Škurda and from the south by the underwater spring Gurdić. Wedged between mountains and a moody corner of the bay, beautiful Kotor was the perfect first stop of my Balkan trip.

My Guide To: Vilnius



Vilnius, the largest medieval old town in central and eastern Europe, increasingly popular for its warming sense of history, offbeat elegance and cool neighborhoods.

Got up at the crack of dawn, eager to explore all the sites this city had on offer.

The breathtaking Tatra National Park (TANAP) in the north of Slovakia, is a unique protected area of flora and fauna among the tallest European mountains situated north of the Alps, natural habitat to many animals such as brown bears, marmots, chamois, and eagles. The park contains more than 100 beautiful alpine lakes, several waterfalls, and heaven-touching mountains, making it the hiking haven for visitors.

Štrbské Pleso with an altitude of 1,346m is the most visited lake in the High Tatras with its captivating raw beauty all around. It is the perfect location and starting point for walking and hiking trips all around Tatra Mountains.

My Guide To: Rabat



Yes, Marrakesh is incredibly popular, but there's so much more to discover in Morocco. 

I wanted to experience a more traditional, unspoiled Moroccan city during my second visit to this wonderful country.

Rabat is lesser-known but culturally rich and the capital city of Morocco. Small and cute, ‘walkable’, Rabat is enchanting with its seaside location and a 12th-century kasbah perched over the bay. This centuries-old city overlooking the Atlantic Ocean has a lot to offer for culture lovers and outdoorsy types.
