If this were Italy or along the Croatian coast even, a coffee would be 3 euro's and not 1 euro, beers similar. The roads would be chocka block full with tourists. Accomodation would cost a kidney, rather than 20 - 30 euro a night. But i reckon after 2025, when Montenegro will possibly join the EU, thats what you are going to see. So if your going to come this way, best you do it in the next few years or else it will go like a thousand other popular places before them. So we took a little ride around the bay(s) here at Kotor and Trivat and quite a pleasant little ride it was too. Many were taking advantage of the sunshine and were taking a dip in the sea. But i think we'll wait until we get back home. I like a swin in the ocean more than most. But pebble beaches and no waves are simply not the Aussie way. Help me out here guys and girls, especially girls. I'm confused, is she giving me the stink eye or the come hither look. Geez, more than once, I've stuffed this up in the past and got myself in a whole heap of trouble. I mean cut me a little slack here, we've only been together for 39 years. You could be excused for thinking that this was lake Garda in Italy, but you'd be wrong. Oh, something that we discovered just yesterday after 5 or 6 days in Montenegro already. Apparently upon arrival in Montenegro you are suppose to register at the local tourist information centre or the police for every nights stay. At each place we have stayed, we'd been asked as per usual our documents. I personally hate this practice here in Europe. Pretty much everywhere in the Euro zone the Hotel/hostel needs copy's of either you ID card or passport. In all the Anglo country's that we have visited, Australia, NZ, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, USA & Canada all a host wants is your money, seems perfectly reasonable to me. But as much as I hate this whole big brother thing here in Europe there is nothing for it, but to hand over what they want. We do however never hand over our passports (Australia does not have ID cards thank goodness), always a photocopy of our passport. The host will take a copy of our photocopy, register us and then pass the info along to the relevent authorities. But here in Montenegro you have to present in person to either the tourist info centre or police. But the previous places we stopped in, never told us that. Our hosts here in Trivat made it clear that they could not register us, we had to do it in person. If we didn't then our hosts would be hit with a 100 Euro fine and we may be hit with similar on the way out of the country or maybe not, we don't really know. But I wasn't about to put our hosts through a whole bunch of grief simply because I personally hate this registration business. Something to think about if you come here. Katrina being way better than I in the the diplomacy stakes went up to the relevent office with our passports and went through the process including giving details of our previous nights stay in Montenegro. She was given a slip of paper a bit like a reciept, apparently we have to hand this across to immigration as we leave the country. Seems old communist ways die hard here in Montenegro, apparently Serbia is similar. We'll find out tomorrow I guess.
