montenegro & Tara

A few weeks back, Deb, Satu and myself after a weeks work cancelled, yet paid for, decided to go regardless to Montenegro, a small Balkan State south of Bosnia and Serbia. Montenegro is famed for its abundance of Karst wilderness, with a vast landscape of broadleaf forest, imposing limestone outcrops and deep canyons, all within a very small and new nation. In the Northwest of Montenegro is a UNESCO World Heritage, the Tara Canyon, 3 days of Class II/III WW fun, with excellent camps perfectly located along the way, more of an adventure booze cruise in an outstandingly beautiful and pristine destination than a multi day stamina test!

Tara like most of the Karst landscape of the Balkans is full of Springs that normally emerge within metres of rivers, often cascading down the rockface into the watercourse.

After 3 days of Turkish Style cafe, I was extremely happy to find an expresso machine!
