About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

The Balkans Campaign

Our plan was to get a Railpass and run throughout eastern Europe like the Wehrmacht. Turns out travel in the Balkans is not quite so easy. But, we made the best of it hitting five countries (Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia) and four UNESCO World Heritage sites (Kotor, Montenegro; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Mostar, Bosnia; and Nesebar, Bulgaria). All this within five days.

The first major stop was Kotor. Kotor was founded in the fifth century BCE. The Emperor Justinian built this massive wall over the city in 585 CE. Check it all out in Wikipedia.

The Natives Were Curious But Friendly

As Was This. Check Out the Guy Checking Her Out! I Think She Had a Late Night.

The Walled City By Night

Kotor was a beautiful city, one which would be a great place to spend a few days. But, we had miles (or kilometres) to go. On to Dubrovnik!
