Highs & Lows
The trainride from Sarajevo to Mostar was seriously the most beautiful train ride I've ever been on!
Too little time! We should have spent a little longer at each place to be able to make the most of it
Before we started this trip, we didn't really know a lot about the Balkan peninsula. We decided to travel this region because friends of mine had done a similar trip and loved it, because it was not so far away from home so we only had to fly once (back) and because we wanted to explore what we thought were still some "secret locations" away from the turistic mainstream. Well, it turned out we were actually not that original in our travel plans as we met quite a lot of other travelers, which was also nice and the places we met were still beautiful and we learned a lot. The region is so diverse in termes of religious and ethnic beackground and has such a rich history which we never learned about in German history class so I am really glad we went and got to learn a little bit!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Next time, I would try to free up more time to be able to stay at each location a little longer to really make the most out of it
We didn't need anything "special"
We used busses which worked fine and one time, we used the train from Sarajevo to Mostar (which I really recommend, great view!).
