Montenegro looks great. Oh the bueaties of Travel. Ups and downs but then you go for a really nice walk and it makes your day.I always say when things are getting on top of us, let's go for a nice walk, and you never know where it leads you too. Hahaha hope you guys can walk back down the Mountain after that drink. At least you will be in high spirits. Thanks guys for a lovely vid.

19:15 Rakija is distilled from fruits, mostly plums, quince, grapes, apples, apricot and even from walnuts ( highly recommended ). Store bought ones are 40% alcohol but home made rajika can be stronger (typically 50%). Enjoy.

The shots from up top are just amazing. The town looks so nice and that water, such incredible colors. What a great atmosphere. Definitely a little town worth spending some time in. The kids cracked me up in the bloopers.

I've just read your latest email, with the section on drinking games. I'm way ahead of you and for a couple of years now I have had a glass of rose wine every time Chris starts a sentence with "So"!

I am now a registered

As usual your video is well up to your excellent standard, even though I am now sozzled.
