We could have easily stayed inside on this particular Sunday afternoon - the older boys especially had no motivation to get outside....and I had the usual piles of laundry to sort.......But just as we were about to light the fire and turn on Netflix the clouds started to clear, and after 24 hours of heavy rain the mountain peaks were just becoming visible through the murk.
As we conclude this year a final adventure from distant shores, before we return to more home-made and local adventures in the far-north of the Highlands.

I usually associate trekking - little & large - with using our legs, but then we already had several train trekking adventures here on the blog, so can't conclude our series of autumnal Montenegro Meanderings without the final episode - the great train journey back!

Slightly worn down from a wet and cool and windy Scottish summer we felt the time was right to go in search of some sun in early September. Montenegro here we come!
