Time to take a tour from Dubrovnik in Croatia to Mostar in Bosnia.
I’ve written before about how easily photos influence my travel plans. Instagram is a dangerous place – full of bucket list inspiration! So when I came across a photo of Mostar’s stunning green river and beautiful old bridge, the first thing I did was check it wasn’t photoshopped. Image verified as real, the second thing I did was booked a trip to see it for myself. Nothing prepared me for the impact this trip would have. Once I saw beyond the beauty, I was left with a tragic tale of a former war zone.
I booked the Dubrovnik To Mostar Day Trip with Viator. We made our way by coach towards the border of Bosnia and Herzegovina, then on to the country’s fifth largest city Mostar. I was in the safe hands of tour guide Josef and barely noticed the two and a bit hours on the coach, distracted by views of tree-topped mountains, the picturesque Elefit Islands and of course, the turquoise waters of the Adriatic.
