Kotor Montenegro~


If ‘beauty is truth,


and truth beauty,’


both can be most perfectly seen,


in age,

and innocence.


Kotor Montenegro possesses both the beauty of age,

and the appeal of innocence.


It seems unspoiled by the modern world.

Staying here one feels removed from the stress and strife of our messy contemporary lives.


Cheers to you from beautiful Kotor Montenegro~

  1. Your photographs make me want to go to Kotor, so amazing they are. The first one is oustanding for capturing the moment and for the soul it contains. Congrats for all the pictures, because of them I can almost feel the atmosphere of Kotor as I was there…

    • The food is superb! Everyone grows their own veggies, has chickens and geese, that freely roam with no restriction. When I had my first egg for breakfast, it took me awhile to get used to it and realize that eggs are supposed to be deep yellow in color and have a strong egg flavor. Tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, bread, everything small scale artisan produced and so different from the mass produced and processed food we get at home. I clearly think we have devolved as a species. We even screw up our own food. We are getting chickens and I am expanding the vegetable garden at The Holler when we get home.

  4. As a traveler I am in love with this place. Those narrow streets and alleys take you back in time, don’t they? Have I seen this place in any of the James Bond flick? I believe Casino Royale. Am I right?

    • Europe is having a extended record making heat wave that has lasted the entire time we are traveling. And so goes our planet. Hope the sun comes out soon for you Rebecca and brings the burst of spring flowers that I know are on their way. ❤

  5. What wonderful photos, Cindy… the colours of the shutters, the wrought iron canopies, the wonderful textures of the walls and the paved alleys, the colours of the tiled roofs,the curves of the minaret -type churches, the tranqull atmosphere, it all made me long to live there, it seemed like a lost paradise, and how wonderful that no world war had despoiled this ravishing place….and not even any rubbish or litter… no coke bottles of fast food wrappers, chocolate wrappings or plastic bags.. just beauty and truth and innocence !!!!

  6. Truly insane beauty and mixed with so much history! I’m really envious: to paint in such a place would be fantastic. And as I understand you really get a chance to go to all these beautiful places. That is just WOW!
    I cannot even remember when we were on vacation. The last 3 years in 1 backyard and a few rooms. So, looking at these pictures takes a breath away. Great job on all photos! That takes a special talent, too.
