I left Ulcinj behind about 8.00am this morning and it wasn’t long before I was enjoying the stunning coastal views that I had expected from Montenegro. In two hours, I had arrived at my accommodation in Dobrota on the beautiful Bay of Kotor.
Dobrota is located on the shore of the Bay of Kotor, about 5km from the town of Kotor. As I was too early to check-in, I parked the Defender outside and decided to walk the 5km along the narrow coastal road to Kotor. There are hotels and holiday apartments along much of the coastal road on the land side, whilst the water-side has multiple docks and pebble beaches where those staying in the hotels and apartments were sun-worshipping. The gorgeous views made the walk into town very pleasant.
When I got to the marina in the town of Kotor, I was surprised to the the Bermuda flag. It was on the super yacht Karima which is registered in Bermuda. The ship even has a helicopter onboard!
There were a few other superyachts in the marina, including the Prana and Sea Owl. For a glimpse at how the rich live, take a look at the interior of Super Owl via this link – Superyacht Sea Owl
Once I got into Kotor, I found a bay-side restaurant and had lunch – the biggest T-bone steak I’ve ever eaten!
Then it was time to walk the 5km back to the hotel and check in – with the hot sun beating down on my neck all the way back. But once I got checked in, clouds rolled in over the bay. The clouds have rolled on out now, so I think I’ll go and have a beer on the hotel’s dock and relax for a while. I’m hoping to be able to rent a boat tomorrow, so I have to check that out.
