I’m surprised to say that one of my favourite experiences whilst cruising this summer was on board the ship: sailing through the bay of Kotor, Montenegro. Waking up at 5:30 (which you think I’d be used to by now!) to witness the 2 hour sail in was completely worth the bags under my eyes. The views either side were incredible.
The sea was lined with mountainous hills where picturesque villages lay at the bottom. There were some fantastic-looking houses along the edge of the water and I imagined what it must be like to live there or have one as a holiday home. Waking up to that view everyday must be happiness itself.
When the sun was out the mountains seemed to shimmer.
Me and my partner Mike were overwhelmed by the beauty around us.
We were lucky enough to be sailing back through the bay at sunset. The way the red light hit the top of these rocks was something I’ve never seen before. It didn’t look real.
And the other side of the ship wasn’t bad to look at either. I think it deserves my vote of the best sunset I have ever seen.
