Ulcinj, Montenegro

“It looks like Europe…wait…it is!” That’s what I said when I looked at this photo and thought to myself how lucky we were to be here.

We were actually in Ulcinj, Montenegro. We took a ride over the border last Saturday, June 29th and it was well worth it. Although smaller than Budva, it was still a lovely city to visit for the day and have a leisurely lunch.The day started out early, well earlier, about 9:00 am when we left Shkodra and headed out toward the Montenegro border. We arrived there in about 15 minutes and then waited another 15-20 minutes to pass. Once over the border the road was an easy drive. It’s a fairly new road and traffic was light all the way to Ulcinj.

We arrived at the Castle around 10:30 am. The Castle sits up on a hilly road, obviously, and from there you get a wonderful view of the coastline. We spent about 45 minutes just walking around and stopping for coffee in one of a number of lovely restaurants inside the castle walls.

After we left the Castle we walked down to the center of town and did some window shopping then went down to the waterfront where we found a decent restaurant and had lunch while enjoying the great view.

We left the city about 1:30 pm and made it home in no time. By 2:30 pm we were back at the old homestead where we rested some more from our exhausting day!
