The next two days of our life was pretty much spent in buses! Our first bus ride was to the southern tip of Montenegro..to a town called Bar. The whole time we were traveling, Zlatan was talking about how horrible …

From Dubrovnik…our plan was to make our way to Greece, but to stop at some cool places along the way! As we boarded the bus, we were both sad to leave Croatia, but excited to see a new country…especially one …

Dubrovnik!!

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_7Z2qO6XlaFw/S-G3VhibQUI/AAAAAAAAAVI/k-9Uo_W_kek/s200/DSCF6542.JPG

To get to the camp site we had to make a 5km trek around the harbor and up a hill. When we arrived we found that it was outrageously priced; no view, no good ground to set up and they …

We hung out in the hostel and waited for our ferry to the island of Hvar. Well, turns out that we bought a ticket for the island further south of Hvar called Korcula instead. SO we rolled with it since …

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_7Z2qO6XlaFw/S9wGhcFlZ2I/AAAAAAAAASY/IMSr6RMfy3o/s320/P4280065.JPG

Not much sleep in Senj, I wish it was excitement keeping us awake but it was the wind blowing our tent around. There was hardly any grass at the site (mostly rocks) so our spikes made it about a half …

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_7Z2qO6XlaFw/S-GgSJw-0MI/AAAAAAAAATA/wjdeEBO5YLg/s200/DSCF6396.JPG

This morning, we took a catamaran to an island called Rab, as recommended by the receptionist at the hostel! It was looking like a promising day, but the second we arrived, a crazy storm started brewing, and before we knew …
