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!
After our first one and a half lazy days of exploring Kotor it was time to shift a gear and aim for some real little trekking.
When we started to plan our Hamburg trip it was always clear that the Port of Hamburg would play a big role. We love ships, living in a (small) harbour town ourselves, and often watch big ships circumnavigating the coast on their way north or south (duly looking up more info on the web where there are some brilliant sites to track those vessels).
Reading about our Montenegro adventures you will probably ask yourselves - what, NO fishing? Naturally there was! No holiday’s complete without at least some angling adventure, so of course we had reserved a full day for some fly-fishing
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!
I’m pleased to report than on the last day of our Arctic Adventure, we finally managed to track down the Big Man.
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.

It was clear from the off, that if we were going to find Santa, we were going to need to find out how to get around in the Arctic. First up – Husky Sledding!
