    I remember also meeting some other hikers
    who were camped off the resort and were hiking off over the mountain
    at sunrise. I saw a Hungarian familly with 2 kids car and small tent.
    There were 2 people who emerged from 1 cabin in cyclist attire and they
    shot off without much off a greeting. There was a couple of motor cyclists also
    who had left before the cyclists...I was getting a bit desperate as almost all
    means of transportation had left. I went with my daughter to the museum,
    wooden buildings on stilts to approach the Hungarians and maybe they could squeeze
    us in. But they were not so chatty or friendly, even though my daughter was also
    Hungarian, well half English too.
    Then while walking back along the beach towards the resort resto outside seats under
    some newly built log maybe pine construction, we came across a German couple,
    very nice, and after a few minutes chatting, they offered, or I asked, can't remember now,
    A lift back to Ulcinj as they were going that way.
    I let out a hugh sigh of relief and we arranged to meet by the entrance after half an hour.
    I tell you after meeting so many nice Germans and Austrians, they became my favourite people
    this summer. Well I should say the ones who were individual travellers.
    We managed to get to Murici by hitching, well someone did drive about 50 kms out of their way
    to bring us and we managed to get out, but it was still August and their were other tourists about.
    Still more exiting when you don't take the well trodden path and take the easy way.
    Well even the easy way ain't that easy when you see the roads...

    Farewell to Murici

    During our 1 night stay, we saw all forms of transport
    of the various guests who were there and all the individual
    travellers came come and left in many different ways.
    The resort owner was not very friendly and over charged
    4 hikers of the given price in the Bar Region Tourist Brochure
    and even on the Murici web site quoted price of €15 to €20
    per person , and was asking €100 for the one log cabin room.
    Well this created a very unpleasant atmosphere and most visitors
    decided to exit the resort as quick as possible, well the 4 hikers
    managed to get a lift with a very charming couple in their own
    custom built camper.

    TO BE UPDATED
    Only taxis charging 20 Euros or
    hitch hiking with maybe 1 car an hour?
    maybe best to find other tourists driving there...
    NOT the sort of place you want to get stuck..
    NO SHOPS, Sometimes no electricity or water.

Donji Murici Warnings and Dangers

    If your hitch hiking and on a limited
    budget, then the only traffic I saw on the road were
    the odd tourist in their camper vans or cars,
    so if you don't have your own tent, be sure to
    ask other guests who are staying at the resort
    if you can get a lift. The owner might call you a taxi,
    but not sure what they would charge, but think in the range
    of €20 + to get you to Virpazar. From there you have trains
    and buses running to Bar, Ulcinj and Podgarica.

Donji Murici Off The Beaten Path

    The small village of Krnjice or KRNJIĆ in Montenegrian,
    is situated on the turning off after about 11 kms on
    the road from Virpazar and Murici. You should go down
    the small road about 1 km before you reach Krnjice.
    Like so many small hamlets and towns, Krnjice is
    shrinking so fast and the average age over 50,
    I can see the homes and ruins of homes being sold of
    as holiday homes to rich Brits, Germans and Russians
    In 1948 there was a population of around 360 people
    and today only 26, halved from 56 in 1991.
    Now some property and real estate dudes are selling
    off the abandoned and ruins of houses for top dollar.
    One 'attractive ruin' in a peaceful area with
    210 sq m of land, house with 49 sq m + 40 sq m cellar
    is going for €25,000.

    Well the road from Virpazar is quite
    dangereous if your going faster than
    30 Kms an hr or on a bicycle with dodgy
    brakes. I wouldn't enjoy either going along
    this road in a large camper or minibus.
    I can't imagine what would happen
    in the winter with snow or ice on the road
    and if there was a bad accident and an
    ambulance had to speed quickly to the
    hospital in Podgarica?
    Maybe just my fear of heights.
    I have been across the Himalayan
    mountain passes 4 times en route
    from Lhasa to Nepal, but this somehow seemed
    more nerve racking, or just old age kicking in?
