We knew pretty early on that we could not move on through Serbia due Yini needing a visa, so yesterday we took a bus to Montenegro to try to circumnavigate that problem. Unfortunately visa free entry did not equal hassle free entry. Yini got rejected at the boarder because we did not send a fax to tell them she was coming. So with a distressed girlfriend and in sweltering heat we started walking the few kilometres across the boarderlands towards the Croatian boarder.
As luck would have it my waving thumb payer off and we managed to hitch a ride with a Romanian couple who drove us back to Dubrovnik. Many thanks to Gabby and Vladimir, we really appreciate what you did for us.
We then booked an over night bus back to Zagreb but instead of going the northern way via Hungary to Romania (our original plan was to see both Bulgaria and Romania on our way north) we head west from here to check out Slovenia. The new plan is now to move east from there stopping by in Slovakia before going north through Poland.
