We spent the first day roaming around the old town and Strolling the city walls. You have to pay the tickets to enter the city walls. Don't forget to carry you student Id card to get some discount.The city walls the the home to various scenes from game of thrones, and any Game of Thrones fan would take the Walking tour to get the details of which shot was taken where. The GOT walking tour is most popular there and you can get it for around 20 euros. The walls are truly amazing with some nice bars and restaurants to relax overlooking both history and nature at the same time. the city walls are must do things to do when in Dubrovnik.

Bulgaria is a very important country in the Balkans and - maybe for work or maybe for a cheap airfare - one day you will have the chance to explore Sofia, one of the most beautiful Eastern Europe city, which you probably haven’t considered before.After Athens and Rome, Sofia is the most ancient city in Europe.In the past the city was called Serdica (also Ulpia Serdica), Triaditza and Sredets. Sofia became the capital of Bulgaria in 1879, after the Liberation of the country from 500 years of Turkish enslavement.

Crossing into Bosnia and Herzegovina the next day brought on a drastic change. Mosques started showing up in villages instead of just churches, cars from the 90s were traded for cars from the 70s, houses were far more utilitarian…but there were still plenty of stray dogs. I arrived in Mostar (unofficial capital of Herzegovina) and had plenty of the day left to see a bit of the city. In 1992, the Serbian Orthodox church (in eastern Mostar) was destroyed. Today, they are just now starting to rebuild the church.The ruins of the original church are still at the site. They were able to retrieve the church bells from the rubble, which will be used again in the new church.

After shivering in the snow for a few hours, I gave up on couch surfing and went to find a hostel. Quick Google search + Google Maps, and twenty minutes later I was in front of Hostel Costel. THANKFULLY they had room, and the hostel was nice and non creepy (that’s not something I can say about the hostels I stayed at in Rome. Shudder!!!).
