Friday 12 October 2012 - Friday 12 October 2012
Started out today by sleeping in a bit, needed some rest for our climb to Kotor fortress and it's great views of the bay. We had another thunderstorm roll in last night, seems every night there is a storm. After breakfast we took our walk into town firstly to buy tickets to Dubrovnik, then find the entrance to climb to the fortress. Luckily the rain has stayed away, mainly overcast with a few sunny breaks. Found the entrance fairly easily and paid 3 euro to climb up. The fortress is located straight up from old town and is steep the whole way. Took a few breaks to snap a few pictures and catch our breath. About 45 min to get to the top and a whole lot faster getting down. Give credit to the people who build things like this, I can't imagine how much effort it took to build this place. It's probably why it took so long to build, they started in the 9th century and completed in the 19th century. After getting down I decided to give Linda a break on the no taxi rule, mainly because I didn't feel like walking another 3k back to the hotel. Later we went to Ella's restaurant for dinner, I took some of my chicken back to the hotel to feed the 3 cats that hang out there. They enjoyed it very much. We are heading to bed early, as we have a 8:30 bus ride to Dubrovnik tomorrow.
