Jun 1, 2018 - Ulcinj

We copped roadworks once again, smack in the centre of Ulcinj, our next stop over point a little further along the Adriatic coast. Our unit was excellent and the town was quaint especially along the water's edge but we opted to spend time away from the noise and dust and found a nice pebbly beach a few k's away. With a nice supply of dried seaweed on hand we layered up a comfy area and spent some time enjoying a good 'sun bake'. Somehow the drawing power of 'shoes and dresses' overcame the town's roadwork conditions and we ended our stay...

Apr 3, 2016 - Bus To Ulcinj

4/3 Mari woke early to say her snit was over and she was OK for leaving early. Bon mumbled something in response - it was 5:30 a.m. I voted to get up and go so we did! Left Hotel Donarti at 6 a.m. On our walk to the bus station we discovered that if we had turned left instead of right out of the bus station, it would have been maybe 5 minutes to the 5 star hotel, ha! At any rate, we arrived at the bus station about 6:15 and a very nice man - maybe boss of the station - who spoke English, explained our options which included a bus directly...

At last, I've reached the other side of the country. The only bus to Shkadar in Albania on the station timetable is at 6am, so I was never going to make it anyway. I found a reasonable hotel near to the bus station to make getting there so early easier but when I checked in they said that they have their own bus at 6:30 am for the same price and it will pick me up outside the hotel. I've booked it but I'm not sure what I'm going to get. Getting here before 3pm gave some time to see Ulcinj before sunset and of course to catch another sunset...

Old town, small beach, big beach. Cafes with loud music and good coffee. Friendly people and sheisters. It's all here in the not so large town of Ulcinj. The old town is being rebuilt still since the earthquake in 1979. Unesco gave money to the town for a couple of the buildings in particular to be fixed up and they (The Palato Veneto being one) are now hotels, restaurants and conference centres. The general population who live on the hill are slower in rebuilding, but are getting it done. The views over the Adriatic are, of course,...

May 16, 2007 - Ulcinj, Montenegro

Montenegro, Black Mountain, was a very relaxing part of the trip that involved many trips to the beach. Ulcinj is a city that lies on the Adriatic Sea and the dark sand beaches are lined with white-washed buildings, shops and mosques. Although the weather on this leg of our trip wasn't as nice as we had been having, Ulcinj impressed us all with it's small-town feel and gorgeous scenery. We also managed to take a day trip to Albania which included a 4 hour hold up at the border and a beach stop complete with cows and garbage dump, but...
