  High above the Bay of Kotor
by Callavetta

My second Atlas tour was a very long, but very interesting day travelling to and through Montenegro. Leaving at 7 am, the bus ventured south, along gorgeous coastline, through passport control, heading inland at the Bay of Kotor. We stopped several times to take photos and then had some time to wander around and visit the old walled city of Kotor.

Getting back on the bus we headed up, up, up, dozens of hair raising switchbacks into the mountains of Montenegro (ergo: Black mountain). From above the views were superb and we had to stop several times for goats, cows and sheep! This is where the skills of the Atlas driver was most evident and several times he earned the applause of the guests.

Inland we stopped for lunch, fresh dalmatian ham and home made cheese sandwiches along with a local wine ($3.00!) at a small village restaurant. Then we proceeded to the capital where we enjoyed a tour of the original home of Nicolas I.

A final stop at a coastal, resort town with another old walled city and an opportunity to enjoy a much needed gelato before heading back along the coast north, returning to Dubrovnik at 7 pm.
