Kotor city walls, Montenegro

Climbing Kotor’s city walls in Montenegro

I’m not the girliest of girls but I have the classic, stereotypical trait: I love to shop. Seeing as my fella has spent the past year determined to get me into hiking I decided to indulge him, ignoring the fact it meant exercise and focusing on the fact it meant new footwear. I’m actually quite a walker but something about knowing in advance that you’re going to walk for X loooong kilometres puts me right off hiking (i.e. my inner sloth says NO).

Surprisingly, I’m into my new Karrimor walking shoes. They got me comfortably to the top of Kotor’s city walls, though being of English/Irish heritage I do not cope well in the heat (and oh that heat…). I cannot explain how warm it was the day we did this walk and it’s a steep old 1.2km climb of around 1400 steps to the top! Take plenty of water, folks.

I confess I chickened out of the final stage, which involved crossing the world’s flimsiest, rustiest bridge to a little fort, but I made it to the top and oh my – that view! More to come from beautiful Kotor
