KAPOORS ON THE ROAD

Once again I was suffering with a mild migraine so Anil got his way and we travelled to the Montenegrin capital via private car. I had been encouraging him to travel on a local bus like we did from Dubrovnik (somehow it makes me feel more like a traveller and less like a vacationer). We had such a lovely week on the Bay of Kotor, and like Dubrovnik, we’d extended our stay for an extra day because it was so relaxing.

We’d spent a lot of time with the two young women, Zorana and Dragana, who operate the reception desk, and enjoyed their company immensely. They had helped us out when Anil needed to have stitches on the cut on his forehead, and when I was keen to buy some cotton kitchen towels like the ones they provided in our apartment’s kitchen, they ordered a dozen in from the capital and then presented me with an additional dozen as a gift from the hotel!

When we met our driver I asked Zorana to speak to the driver and ask him to avoid speeding and overtaking on turns, she laughed and told us the gentleman was Dragana’s father and that he would take special care with us!

We bid Kotor goodbye, with thoughts of returning in late 2020, and set off. The highway was amazing, the views of the coast spectacular and the two hours sped by. I would normally have asked our driver to stop at a viewpoint or two, but I wasn’t feeling well and just wanted to get to our next destination. Somehow, I wasn’t too disappointed because both of us feel that we’ll be back in Montenegro again before too much time passes.
