The first experience when you enter Montenegro
When you enter Montenegro over the border from Croatie you quickly realize that this is not a prosperous country, that corruption happens here with increasing frequency and that the majority of the population is still poor and lives like our grandparents 60 years back in time …(and longer)
But all this is quickly forgotten when I arrive in Baošići.
In Baošići, I decide to leave the E65 and drive along the coastline for a while, to soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere.
The road runs parallel to the E65. There are some narrow paths and sometimes I hope I don’t get an oncoming car. I do not realize it yet, but later in the trip I will realize that I can be happy that as far as the crowds are concerned I travel around here in the corona era.
In Đurići, just before the road turns sharply to the left, you get the first real impression of Montegro,
The meaning black mountain is fully appreciated here with a beautiful view of Gospa od Anđela -Verige
and the first view of Perast,
which is my final goal that day to do a miraculous hike along a trail that over the years has been forgotten.
To then have a view of Latarnia Morska on the island of Gospa od Škrpjela,
and the Catholic monastery of Saint George on Sveti Dorde.
Time to start my walk to Fort sv Andrija
