Again we had another 7am breakfast with a 7.45am departure (Contiki is full of late nights and long days, it’s about hardening the fu*k up!). We were leaving Albania for Dubrovnik in Croatia, on the way we would pass through Montenegro.

On the drive up the Adriatic coast we were the recipients of magnificent views over the Adriatic Sea; from what I saw I would love to make a trip back to Montenegro, and in comparison to most of Europe it’s cheap!

  1. Maaate,
    Im finding it painful to look at all these adventure holiday photos while sitting in the office at work. But knowing how much you hate early starts (based on all those no-show 8am lectures) and reading that you have to wake up before 7am does make me feel a tiny bit better.

    Do you reckon they could fit any more umbrellas on the beach? Maybe not, it would spoil the perfect symmetry.


  2. The Europeans, they love their umbrellas. Generally in Europe they seem pretty good at preventing rampant development (Something Thailand could learn from) however they appear to make an exception for umbrellas!
