Cruisin'🛳

First stop,

Montenegro

At last I am posting about the second half of our trip to Europe last summer which was a cruise that stopped in Montenegro, several places in Greece, and Dubrovnik. We were able to see a lot of different places in such a short period of time because we switched to traveling by sea. The downside was that there never seemed to be enough time to explore everything. Our first stop was Montenegro, a small country in southeast Europe. I had never heard of Montenegro before this trip, so this was a great opportunity to see a country I had never thought about visiting. We choose to view Montenegro mostly from the sea. Our catamaran excursion took us along the coast where we saw the quaint and quiet country of Montenegro. It was so relaxing to lie on the nets of the catamaran with the Adriatic Sea splashing beneath. (Except for when the lens cap from the camera fell into the sea…) A highlight was sailing past Our Lady of the Rocks on a tiny island where the bright blue tops of the domes caught my eye. We stopped at a rocky beach where I collected rocks as a souvenir of my time in Montenegro. 

The Cruise:


The cruise boat we sailed on was called the Norwegian Star. I particularly enjoyed the giant chess, shuffleboard, and excursions.

The Catamaran Ride:


This ride was a memory that I always want to remember. It is hard to describe this feeling, but the combination of the open sea, the wind blowing your hair, and the thrill of adventure made you feel so free as to believe that anything is possible.

The Beach:


The rocks on this beach were extraordinary and colorful! I made myself a little collection to take home. (In order to bring back the saturation that they once had when wet, I painted them with clear nail polish after I returned home.)

The Drive:


On the way back to our cruise boat, we took a bus and the sky’s angry clouds were broken by the setting sun. We passed various crumbling buildings full of character before saying goodbye to the country of Montenegro.
