Exploring Bosnia and Herzegovina
Another business trip to undiscovered country for me. We’ve spent one evening and night and the next afternoon in a rather small city called Pususje, which is so far from the capital city Sarajevo that I’ve had a few unpleasant issues on the road…
First of all, I was surprised that there were no direct flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina from Russia… And even from Greece (where we were heading from). We had to flight to Istanbul, Turkey and then to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The first thing that I saw in the cabin window when we were about to land was MOUNTAINS!!! And that just took my breath away! I always was obsessed with two things in the world – clouds and mountains, and Bosnia and Herzegovina had all of that.
On our way to Posusje city I’ve been taking some photographs from the car, because the roads were a typical mountain spiral roads and too narrow to even pull over and get out of the car for a minute. Here are some shots that I’ve had.
Even though the views were truly amazing and breathtaking, I’ve had a bad reaction to the highway spiral… Yeah, exactly – vomited on the way to Posusje and even on the way back, too. So if you’re gonna follow the same path, please make sure you don’t eat anything before getting into the car.
When we arrived, it was already too late and we decided to share a dinner with our partners in Posusje and have a small talk. We asked for some local food and immediatelly have been served with a wooden platter with some variations of meat and chees as the appetizer. Next they brought us some more meat! It was crazy! A whole bunch of 6 or 7 types of meat, chicken, sausages… There was enought to feed a group of 30! We tried a little bit of everything and was totally amazed with the delicious-ness of all that we’ve had on our table! It was a wonderful evening and an amazing dinner. We thanked the chef (who was the kindest person, by the way) and headed to the hotel for a rest.
Next morning I’ve noticed that the sky changes every single munute, which was so mind-blowing that I didn’t want to leave the room and just stay there and stare at the clouds all day long.
But we had to leave, because our next flight was in the afternoon. We had our business conversation with our parteners and it was very successful, I must say. On my way back to the airport in Sarajevo, I took more photographs of the beautiful mountains.
Because of that I had a bad reaction on the way back too, we decided to take some local citrus fruits – the mandarin oranges. Trust me, local foods are always the best. It was sour and sweet – and that’s the way I love it.
Even spending only one night and half of the day in Bosnia and Herzegovina, not even seeing ALL the beauty of it and spending most of the time on road, I realized one very clear thing in my mind – I was in love with it, and I will definitely come back again – hopefully not for a business, but for a travel.
No one will make you happy. You should be happy by your own, and find somebody to share your happiness with.
