Two weeks in Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro – immersed in mountains

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is our road trip itinerary for two weeks in Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro, where we immersed in mountains in July 2023.

We rented a car in Belgrade, and after short stops in Serbia continued south to the mountain eldorado of Montenegro. We were taken aback by beautiful mountain landscapes that surrounded us whereever we went. We rafted on the Tara and Drina rivers on the border with Bosnia-Herzegovinia, before we returned to Belgrade.

The Balkan region is underrated as a travel destination. The mountains, canyons and rivers are as beautiful as the Alps or Pyrenees, but with less tourists. The areas we visited are also less developed than the more popular European destinations. That means less options for accomodation and restaurants, but also gives a more rugged experience, which we liked.

This trip was the first time we travelled all four, after T’s recovery from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). We were grateful and each day truly happy that he was able to do so, mixed with the uncertainty of fall-backs.

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis

The recovery rate from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is only 5%, and during his period of illness, it was very unlikely that he would ever by able to travel again. CDC estimates that between 1 and 2.5 million Americans suffer from ME. We wish that more ME patients get their life back and the opportunity to explore the world!
There is no medical cure to ME, but early diagnosis is assumed to be a key reason behind T’s unusual recovery. Awareness is essential for diagnosis.
Please take action by reading about ME. You may be able to spot symptoms of ME among relatives or friends, and help prevent severe ME. If you engage in discussions, you contribute to collectively increased awareness of ME in the population, which will lead to better conditions for patients through recognition of their condition.
