What is beautiful?
How do you define what’s lovely and what’s not?
I found Montenegro to be a land of contrasts.
When I saw the ultra posh Hotel Splendid in the seaside town of Budva, I thought it was not so splendid at all. Madonna and Sting and Tom Cruise were there this summer. A James Bond movie was filmed there. I found it snobby and unremarkable.
But the countryside...
The ordinary people and their simple lives within the city of Kotor are splendid.
I climbed their ancient wall to the top of the mountain and found it beautiful.
Montenegro. Come to Kotor and visit if you have the opportunity.
I found it fascinating.
And hauntingly beautiful.
