Mediterranean Cruise: Kotor, Montenegro

Kotor, Montenegro was our second to last stop.

We tethered in the bay and then took the boats to shore. We only had a few hours in Kotor so we booked an excursion through the cruise.

The town itself was beautiful!

We learned some history about Kotor and then took a walking tour around the town.

The churches in Europe, especially in these small towns, are so pretty.

Then we had some time to explore on our own.

Then we got on busses and headed to the mountains.

First we got on a big bus, then transferred to small vans because the road up the mountain was small and treacherous.

In the town there was an awesome old, small church.

Then we went to the old olive oil processing house. As we were learning about how olive oil was made some bats came out of hiding. I started freaking out. Luckily we left soon after.

Then they served us a traditional lunch with meat, cheese, bread, olive oil and zeppole type dessert with syrup.

We also got wine and grappa. Grappa is like moonshine and HORRIBLE.

Then we were serenaded by a local band and a local girl did some traditional dancing.

The lunch was so fun and the food was delicious! I am so glad that we booked that tour.

Then we headed back to the boat. I am sad we didn’t have long there. I loved the country and the people!

When we got back on the boat we went to the towel folding demonstration.

I love the towel animals and learning how long it takes to master them was cool.
