If you follow my blog you know I don’t write much. I’m all about pictures. But this time I just have to tell you everything exactly as it was, in case you ever decide to visit Bosnia and this area especially.
This is not the first time I was in Bosnia. It was about 5th time this year but it’s my first time in Jajce. We heard there is a lovely waterfall and a gorgeous sight to see. When we got there I parked my carbon public big parking lot with a lot of other cars. We went to see the waterfall and payed for it 2 marke (about 1 Euro per person) and after we went to eat. The watefall and especially this view is beautiful! I love the little city up there as well. So nice and gorgeous! And not alot of walking which is great because it was +37 Celsius in the shade.
The restaurant was delicious and so affordable but nobody there spoke English (I don’t know if that’s the case in others around it) and we went back to the car (not even 2h later). When we arived there were no cars next to my car and I looked down to the tires – there was something add, I noticed that someone stole a decorative screw on every of my 4 tires. One on every weel. I’m just glad we got there before it assembled the whole tires. I was shocked. Then I looked more and saw my review mirror and it was scratched like someone pressured wooden board and dragged until it scratched. (No other car could do it, I have a huge car and there were normal cars where I parked in between them on purpose) We drove straight away to Banjaluka and left the car under hotel cameras.
Moral of this story and my advice to you;
If you are visiting Bosnia come with a bus or rent a car in Bosnia especially if you are going outside Sarajevo. As my car has Croatian license plates it’s a very slippery slope. Since the war was 20 years ago the hate is still in some people. I never ever experienced to my face but I would never ever leave my car in Banjaluka if I can’t see it because of Serbian-Croatian relations until this day. (Banjaluka had most Serbian citizens). That’s the perfect example how few people can ruin it for everyone and make you look over your shoulder. I love going to Bosnia because in hotels, restaurants and cafes they are so nice and friendly (and amazing delicious food). People on the streets too, they will help you in anyway they can which I can’t say for Croatia. Yes, they are just trying harder and they are never annoyed in Bosnia.
I will not stop going to Bosnia because of this, I like it, but I just want to warn and inform you so you don’t return to your car with a broken something and be surprised.
Thank you if you read all this! Maybe I should write more like this? 😆 Make sure to follow me and have a great week😄
If you missed, check my last post with more photos of Piran but I saved same sweet pictures just for you in this hot hot superhot summer weather!
As you climb up for the view, you will have to walk quite a bit. But if you don’t wanna go all the way up it’s fine too. I think this view is good enough. You don’t need to die of the exhaustion just for the photo. It’s 40 degrees in celsius so that’s hell hot.
I saved the best for last! My absolute favourite picture of Piran is just a view form the ground looking at the little houses so close to the sea. Love it!
I hope that you stay away from the sun or at least don’t burn on it.
Have a wonderful week and don’t forget to follow me! 😄
You only have one chance to see outside the walls but you need to rent a boat! You can go on big boat, wooden boat, boat with a glass bottom and a regular one. Also you can pedal in the kayak! Anything you pick, it’s fine. You will see it all.
Not only the walls, you can look at the outside Dubrovnik and just see it all!
Nothing to do with boat theme but I have one for the streets again 😉 I just love tiny streets!
Maybe because I was born on the sea and now I’m living far away from it, every visit to the sea is so precious to me. The color, smell, boats, seagulls, sound of the waves, – everything, I love it. I don’t mind to admit I was spoiled and grown up on one of the most clean sea and beaches in the world, Croatia 😀 I would rather just stay in the shade than be in dirty lake/sea. That’s how we are 🙂
If only pictures could bring smells and warm temperatures to you! I guess you just have to visit 😉 so hurry, the summer is here!
These mornings are the best! Getting out of hotel which is 3 steps away from the sea and taking a nice relaxing walk when there is no need for heavy jackets and whatnot winter equipment. Looking at the sea and feeling the warmth of the sun makes me realize how much I hate winter, hate it with passion.
Looking at the sea reminds me of my view of the sea where I grew up. Every time I would look outside I would see the sea.
The smell of the sea clears your mind and sinuses 😛
Even a small walk whit this kind of view will help you have a good day.
I hope everyone else is having a great day as well! 🙂
Even tho is raining I had to take pictures of this almost mystical sight. The clouds on top of the mountains are stunning. The calmness of the lake and atmosphere of the forest surrounding me is just the best therapy when your stress is all over you. When you are standing in the place like this a lot of thoughts are just leaving your mind and new positive are coming in, it’s all you need sometimes.
It’s too bad I didn’t get sunny pics of this amazing place, but this is beautiful too.
The most beautiful time for me is just the begging of spring in the woods. Full of color and green as a contrast to everything else. The beautiful soft light green leaves just growing are sight to see before they grow to the fullest.
Narrow but filled with history and beauty. Lovely flowers on house windows are braking the stone consistency.
I love looking at the sky when I walk through there streets, such a contrast of colors comparing with stone. When it rains of it rained you should probably look ahead not the sky or up because the stone on this streets is crazy slippery even when it’s dry! 🙂
