Map of Croatia View of Trogir CroatiaMap MontenegroIn July 2013 we took a month-long trip to the Balkans.  Our journey began in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and ended in Zagreb, Croatia.

We started out joining an organized 10-day Wilderness Travel trip, where we spent two days exploring Sarajevo, then onward to Montenegro for exhilarating hiking from its beautiful mountains down to the lovely Bay of Kotor on the coast.  Having local guides helped us get to know the history and culture of this area.

After leaving the group, we spent a couple of days in Dubrovnik, then rented a car for two weeks of exploring throughout Croatia on our own.
