POLSKI:
Ponownie szlismy spory kawal drogi, nie bylo gdzie stanac, bo droga byla bez pobocza i przez dluzszy moment bez chodnika. W koncu stanelismy na jakims kawalku skwerka przed prywatnym domem i stamtad zabralo nas malzenstwo w srednim wieku. Zawiezli nas 7km od granicy, potem jeszcze 1 auto i... powiedzielismy do widzenia slicznej Czarnogorze! Od granicy czarnogorskiej do chorwackiej bylo ze 2 km pod gore, w upale. Gdy szlam sama z plecakiem (Marcin wyprul do przodu swoim tempem), widzialam kolejke aut w strone Czarnogory. Jakis Amerykanin myslal, ze sznur samochodow spowodowany jest wypadkiem. Nie zdawal sobie sprawy, ze musial przekroczyc   2 osobne granice - chorwacka i czarnogorska. Panowal taki upal, ze te 2 km wydawaly sie dlugie na 10km. Gdy uszlam juz z 1,5km, zatrzymal sie przy mnie facet z Kosova i kazal wskakiwac. Marcina zgarnelismy po drodze. Facet zawiozl nas w poblize lotniska, a potem utknelismy na ponad godzine. Ostatnio slonce tak prażyło, gdy byliśmy w Grecji. W koncu zostalismy podwiezieni pare km, a niedlugo potem zatrzymalo sie dla nas dwoch Francuzow. Z nimi dojechalismy do Dubrovnika na pole namiotowe. W czworke rozbilismy 2 namioty na jednym miejscu kempingowym. Potem poszlam z Marcinem na plaze. Woda byla lodowata, szczegolnie w porownaniu do Grecji. Przenieslismy sie na basen kempingowy. Dopiero okolo 20tej dojechalismy autobusem na starowke. Stare miasto Dubrovnika wygladalo podobnie do Kotoru, tylko ze bylo wieksze i przezywalo najazd turystow. A tlumy ludzi moga zniszczyc atmosfere kazdego miejsca. Ceny również mnie zastanowily - Dubrovnik to jedno z drozszych miast w Europie, np. bilet autobusowy byl drozszy niz bilet na metro w Atenach. Ale starowka robila wrazenie, szczegolnie po zmroku. Kto ma tam mieszkanie, wygral los na loterii, tak jak z reszta w Kotorze. To mysl Marcina, ale ja sie pod nia podpisuje. Wrocilismy na camping pieszo (40 min) i po przepierce ubran, poszlismy spac. Byla 1 w nocy.

ENGLISH:
We walked a long distance again, there was no place to stand, as there was no roadside for a long while, neither a walkside. Eventually we stood at a tiny square in front of someone`s house and from there we were taken by a married couple in the middle age. They drove us to the place 7km from the boarder, then another car and... we had to say goodbye to beautiful Montenegro! From the Montenegrin to the Croatian boarder there was 2km distance up a road, in a heat. While I was walking by myself with my backpack (Marcin walked ahead with his own speed), I could see cars lined up towards Montenegro. A certain American man thought that the queue of cars was caused by a car accident. He wouldn`t realize there were 2 boarders - the Croatian and Montenegrin one. When I already walked about 1,5km, a guy from Kosovo stopped next to me and told me to jump in. We grabbed Marcin on the way. The guy drove us near to the airport, where we got stuck for over an hour. Last time when the sun was so killing, we were in Greece. Eventually we got a few km ride, which was followed by another ride with two French guys. We got to Dubrovnik`s campground with them. Four of us pitched 2 tents up at one campsite. After  that me and Marcin went to a beach. The water was freezing cold, especially comparing to the sea water in Greece. We moved to a campground`s pool. Yet it was 8pm when we finally got by bus to the old town. The old town of Dubrovnik looked similar to Kotor, but it was bigger and there was much more tourists. And the throng can kill the atmosphere of every place. The prices also made me considered - Dubrovnik is one of the most expensive towns in Europe, for instance bus ticket was more expensive than metro ticket in Athens. The old town though was making a certain impression, especially at night. Who`s got a flat there, won a lottery, as well as in Kotor. That`s what Marcin said, but I think the same. We walked back to the campground (it took us 40 min) and after having washed our clothes, we went to sleep. It was 1 am.
