MY ABC OF THE COOLEST THINGS TO DO ON A ROAD TRIP THROUGH BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA
[E] Stop everywhere along the road, get out of your car, open your eyes and fall in love over and over again. Insider tip: with all the beauty of this country and the absence of highways, a 100 km trip can easily take a whole day, so don’t make your schedule too tight!
[F] Call your rental car ‘Funky White Boy‘ and actually think it’s a cool name. In our defense: the car was white and ‘Play that funky music white boy’ was playing on the radio right when we picked it up!
[G] Read about the genocide before you leave, realize how recent it actually is and visit the historical museum of Sarajevo for testimonies and (sometimes shocking) images.
[H] Learn a few words of Bosnian, like ‘dobar dan’ and ‘hvalla’, which mean ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’.
[I] On your way from Sarajevo to Konjic, stop in Ilidza to see its ‘Big Alley’ and realize it’s actually just an asphalt road and some trees… So yeah, I know I just told you to stop ‘everywhere’, but I think you can skip this one… #Didn’tEvenTakeAPicture
[J] Whilst driving from Konjic to Mostar, check out Lake Jablanica to admire its perfectly blue water. #LakePorn
Oh, and bring Jones Around the World on your trip too, even though you’ve never met him before.
