The USA’s newest World Heritage site dedicated in 2015, the San Antonio Missions are a great history lesson in Spanish colonialism and tell the story of the beginning of South Texas culture. So this was the perfect way to start my exploration of San Antonio and Texas!
Mostar, a city at the crossroads of culture & religion of Muslim Bosniaks, Catholic Croats, and Serbian Orthodox has survived the power struggles and today is a magical village to explore in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
At the end of the Bay of Kotor, the walled city of Kotor is sight to see for Adriatic medieval fortifications with gates, maze-like streets, bastioned walls, and the Great Wall of Kotor circling the hillside protected by a fortress.
Montenegro lives up to the name, Black Mountain, with its dramatic tall fjord like mountains surrounding the Bay of Kotor.
