Where I stayed
As we drove through the main part of town towards the War Tunnel Museum, plenty of significant buildings were pointed out and the history lesson began. The museum was fascinating and we actually got to walk through part of the original tunnel that ran from the free Bosnian territory under the UN occupied airport and into the surrounded town. We also took a drive up the surrounding mountains to the Olympic bobsleigh track, the view back down over the city was just stunning. From here we also visited Goats Bridge and the White Bastion. The whole tour was taken up by interesting stores and facts not to mention the many questions that both Gary and I had
We said our goodbyes back at the hostel but not before getting one last recommendation for some lunch - pita pies. Another Bosnian speciality, meat and/or veggies wrapped in pastry = delicious! So we grabbed (too many..) and hit the road back to Mostar.
Again following the river back down the views were stunning and the temperature rose. Gary stopped off for a personal tour of the trout farm whilst I napped in the sun - fishing is not one of my passions to say the least...
Back at the hostel after a long but absolutely brilliant day we were buggered. So we relaxed until the sun went down, then headed into town for a quick bite before hitting the hay hard :)
Tomorrow we are hoping to have brekky in Mostar (for one last traditional Bosnian coffee) before heading back into Croatia. We are spending the night in a hostel just outside the old town.
Thank-you Bosnia and Herzigovina!! We were not even sure if we would stay here let alone what to expect if we did. We have had the most amazing time here, we have learnt A LOT, seen some truly amazing sights, met some fantastic people - what a very unexpected, pleasant surprise.
