This was a day packed with various experiences. We were treated to interesting information relating to the history and politics of BH. The drive to the bridge was an interesting exercise as it highlighted some of the countries political divisions and how these impact on peoples’ lives. Although it was cloudy with occasional rain, this is did not dull our enjoyment of seeing the bridge over the River Drina.

Maybe everyone thinks that you should go to Mostar and maybe people tell you that nothing happens in Visegrad, but our trip to Visegrad went through the most beautiful mountains and landscapes, but most of all we had a very interesting, polite and friendly guide, well educated and easy to talk to and to learn more about the country and the people. It was like meeting a new friend.
We got picked up outside the flat in Konak we had rented for 4 days, and went one way to Visegrad to see the bridge over Drina and back again to Sarajevo another way. On the way back we visited another small town (I have forgotten the name). Everything was great, beautiful and very interesting.
