Today, I wanna share pictures of my trip to the Balkans, which was a much needed trip by the way. I had been craving to leave Budapest for a weekend trip for so long, I just had to take this trip when I saw the chance. It was group organized, so it made it easier to plan. All I literally had to do, was pay the money and show up!
The Balkans is a region in Europe with different borders which stretches from Serbia-Bulgaria.
My first stop was Mostar, a small town in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
JOURNEY – DEPARTURE & ARRIVAL :
This was an adventurous and super, super, VERY long bus trip.
We departed Budapest at 8pm and drove for some hours to Szeged and arrived at 11pm, where we had to pick up the rest of the travelers.
We continued the journey at midnight finally, and while I slept through most parts, I woke up when we arrived Croatia at border control.
After about 40 minutes of checking, we embarked on the second part of the journey and I slept off again.
When we arrived Bosnia & Herzegovina, we had another customs check and headed on our way.
Mostar seemed really, really far as I was still on the road at 11:35am. That means that we were on the road for more than 15hours!
I loved the view once the sun came up though, it’s so amazing to watch how nature changes and transitions so beautifully.
After we arrived, about 20 hours later, we were grouped to hostels. I and my friends got to stay in a beautiful apartment which was perfect with a private kitchen, bathroom and living room.
The most beautiful sceneries:
Here are more pictures from my journey and tour of Mostar!
Mostar was a beautiful and picturesque city and when I got to know the history and culture of the place, I appreciated it more. And I feel like I didn’t do justice to the history telling. Check out deets on wikitravel here
The only downside was that I didn’t get to visit the local restaurants, not after the bad pasta I had earlier on. I just ate sandwiches and kept it moving.
I hope you love the pictures! Have you visited the Balkans before? What are your favorite places to visit?
