    A few days ago I read in the media that the new road from the Montenegrin/Albanian border (Božaj/Hani i Hotit) to Vermosh (Grnčar) through the Kelmend region was opened.

    I visited Shkodra for the first time in the nineties of the last century.

      On our camper trip around Europe in September we made a stop in Mostar. I always have a nostalgic feeling when I visit this beautiful place, as I still remember how it looked like before the 1990s war.
