Montenegro—my new favourite place

We often travel by cruise ship because it's a great way to see many different places in a fairly short period of time. Of course, we only see a small part of each country or city, but it is enough to give us a taste of what each place offers.
Last month's cruise stopped in Montenegro, and the Norwegian Spirit offered a shore excursion for people like me, people who can't walk very far very fast. I was immediately smitten with the city of Kotor in Montenegro.
I've mentioned this port before, but with only a few photos. Now you get to see my favourite port.

Above is my favourite photo because,
if you look closely,
you can see the lamp post
reflected in the puddle on the street.

I looked at Kotor's peaceful harbour, at its palm trees, ivy, and flowers, and I thought I could live here. Of course I can't, because of the dampness, but I can dream.

Faded grandeur. The suspended reflection echoes the derelict windows up behind... atmospheric is the keyword I think! I can indeed see why it attracted you. Coastal, cloudy, mountainous, quiet. YAM xx

Lovely photos - I like the misty/cloudy ones.

I'm glad you shoed them on facebook, I didn't realize you posted them here!
I think the time differences means I miss some things between your and my posts!!!

I can see why you were smitten! As a long time British Columbian, you couldn't get used to the dampness again? Good thing you live in Alberta now. (I would probably pick dry too, even though I love the Pacific Northwest).

What an excellent place to take in. I don't know much about the region and hope it stays a safe place to travel.
