    If you're going to stay in Montenegro, please be sure to go rafting on the Tara river. I'd recommend the Grab campgrounds. The best times to go for white water are April-June. The staff is extremely friendly and the river is absolutely gorgeous. It's said to be the cleanest in all of Europe.

  • White water rafting on river Tara

    This is one place to experience that i wouldn't recommend to anyone...but that's just because I love the fact that there is one place in Europe that is untouched and so far from civilization, and that's exactly how I would like it to remain, so STAY OUT! For an adventure, this is the ultimate place to getaway. Crystal clear rivers (which you can...

Wandering around the old town, I found the...
