The journey to Mostar :))

The highest cost of any trip is flexibility

So i left Victor's place early in the morning and bid my farewell to my new friend Scarlet and made my way to the hitchhing point.
I left in such a rush i didnt prepare my sign before hand and when i arrived i had to scavenge around looking for some cardboard.
After awhile i finally decided to make do with the blank side of an old poster.

Soon enough an old van pulled over :) Its hard to describe the ecstasy and excitement in finally getting picked up ( even though the wait wasnt as long as it felt)

The driver was a really cool old guy. Born and bred in the Balkans. He didnt speak a single word of english or german. Body language it was haha. I dont know what inspired me, but i took out some Ba Kwa for him to try. ( Unfortunately he didnt like it so much haha ! )
Slowly i managed to find out information about his family and job... The Van stereo was playing old songs from his era (1960 or older) and soon his was singing along :) I really wish at that moment i could speak bosnian and sing along also but...

The journey was about 2 hours but the scenery was simply surreal. One of the best sceneries i had ever seen in my life.

There were mountains, churches and old buildings and than lakes that reflected the entire mountain standing behind it.
My breath was taken away and i really couldnt stop taking photos ( Most of them were shit because the car was too fast haha )

After awhile we took a short break to stretch our legs and this was the view.
He than showed me a bridge that had collapsed in the first world war.

Soon enough we arrived in Mostar !!
I was super psyched !
It wasnt a big town and the moment he dropped me off i found a random cafe with free wifi in front of this really tall church haha

After thanking my driver profusely and wishing him all the best i slowly made my way to the city center :)) Mostar !!!!!
