Bay of Kotor, Montenegro.

Quaint, zen, inspiring were the words that came to mind when we set our eyes on this place! We actually struggled to find words that would accurately describe the natural beauty of this place.

We have been here now for several days and we are still mesmerized by the beauty of this place. It’s like we are in a painting.  We just keep looking around us and we are speechless. fullsizeoutput_224eNot even sure our photos will do it justice as I think you would need a professional photographer to truly capture its beauty. Hopefully, our photos will at least assist us in remembering the feeling we had here for years to come.fullsizeoutput_22f6.jpeg

We are hoping before we leave Kotor next month that we can eat at Galion restaurant , which is this beautiful restaurant (see below) that is located out onto the water.  😊fullsizeoutput_2297.jpeg

We hiked the walls of the city of Kotor or sometimes called the ladder of Kotor. The destination in the mountains was the Church of Lady of Remedy which is a Roman Catholic church that dates from the early XIV century.  Then further up to the ruins of the castle of San Giovanni.  (see the tiny black arrows indicating both).fullsizeoutput_2303.jpegIt was a beautiful morning hike up there. We left around 9am and we were back to the old town early afternoon. We took our time up and admired the views. We did not find the climb to be that strenuous, we just needed to watch our step.

We encountered some pretty fat cats along the way. Hum! IMG_3996IMG_4001IMG_4032IMG_3999.JPGfullsizeoutput_228bfullsizeoutput_22a8

We reached the summit for the ultimate view!

Total relaxation but it’s time to go back, the sun is coming down.
