Jonesy's travels, day out in Bosnia-Hercegovina, Mostar and Kravice falls.

I thought I'd make a separate thread for this day trip as it's a different country.

Leaving our base in Orebic on Croatia's Peljesac peninsula we took the short 50 minute car ferry to Ploce on the Croatian mainland before driving over the border into BiH.

On the ferry, passing typical Croatian rocky coastline

Ploce doesn't seem the most beautiful town on the Dalmation coast but a lick of paint would make these apartments better looking!

Onward for another couple of hours past the omnipresent roadside watermelon stalls, The border and a nice little town called Pocitelj which I didn't take any photos of and we arrive in Mostar.

The old town is in good repair but just slightly beyond that there are still buildings bearing the scars of war from nearly 20 years ago.

On the way back we took a detour via the waterfalls at Kravice before the long drive home.

Thanks! Yes, it's a nice spot there, worth a visit if you're in that area. I had never heard of the falls to be honest until I was doing a bit of research before the trip.

They seem quite popular with local people and there was also a couple of buses full of Italian Catholics there, I think they had been to nearby Medugorje on some sort of church trip.

Yes, Međugorje is a popular Catholic pilgrimage site in Herzegovina and is close to this rather unknown waterfall place.

Very nice pictures Jonesy I seem to remember you being quite interested in the Balkans from the DLM discussions a few years back (I've been banned from there for some time now so I dont know how active you still are there), nice that you got yourself a visit there.
