I’m happy to say we had a great bus ride to Budva. The mountain and coastal scenery were both spectacular and our bus was well equipped with seat belts and WiFi. The driver still smoked but now that we are seasoned bus riders we know enough to sit towards the back of the bus.
Our communication with our Airbnb host wasn’t the best so getting there was a challenge. Evidently, Montenegro (or at least Budva) doesn’t use addresses, they use coordinates or landmarks or well known places such as restaurants. Fortunately, our Airbnb was next to a restaurant so once we figured that out, all our problems were solved. We had the most spectacular view of the coastline and of the old town so a favorite pastime was just sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine or beer enjoying our leisure time in Budva. There aren’t many historic sights here other than the fortified city of the old town, but it is a beautiful city with friendly people and reasonably priced food. We took a day trip to Kotor and swam in the “blue” cave which was breathtaking. Montenegro is the start of our costal sightseeing adventure and it did not disappoint.

Kotor is a fortified town on Montenegro’s Adriatic coast, in a bay near the limestone cliffs of Mt. Lovćen. Characterized by winding streets and squares, its medieval old town has several Romanesque churches.
On our way to The Blue Cave - The way the sun reflects off the white sand bottom makes the entire cave's water glow blue neon.
