When we arrived in Dubrovnik Duke booked the bus for today that would take us on to Montenegro and the seaside town of Herceg Novi. We decided to walk from our hotel in Dubrovnik to the bus station since it was a flat walk of a little more than a mile along the coast.
We left the hotel 55 minutes before our bus departure time so we would have time to spare and could have a leisurely walk. Unfortunately we soon discovered that the coast road was closed and we would have to climb up many stairs and go around the long way. We hurried and made it to the bus station with only 5 minutes to spare. Each of us was dripping with sweat but we made it!
The distance we had to travel today south along the coast was only about 40 miles. But everyone had to get off the bus at the border to go through Croatian exit control and then again a mile down the road at Montenegro entrance control. So all in all the trip took about 2 hours.
The hotel we are staying at in Herceg Novi is magnificent! We will be here two night. The setting is idyllic and as we arrived the sun came out even though the forecast was for rain. After checking in and taking a nap we went for a walk.
Then we went back, got our Kindles and read in the bar while having local beers.
We ate dinner outside at the restaurant in the hotel. we started with the Montenegro antipasto plate.
Then Duke had prawn pasta and I had beef short rib past. Each of them was excellent.
After dinner we walked out to the Marino to get a nice night view of the hotel.
