Montenegro is Majestic

Hola Dead Sexy Magazine!
Instead of cruising the Croatian islands and winding up back on Hvar, I decided to dock in Split instead, where a colleague from France was waiting to drive me down Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian coastline and into neighbouring Montenegro.
We arrived early this morning and had enough time to sip a morning cappuccino in Kotor before heading onwards to the small islet of Sveti Stefan, the jewel in Montenegro’s crown (see photo attached).
Although it is not blessed with hundreds of islands (like neighbouring Croatia), Montenegro has just about everything else – dramatic Alpine mountains, stunning coastal towns and magnificent panaoramic vista’s – all in a space about the same size of Switzerland (and the people are just as tall, good-looking and soccer crazy as the Croats!)
We had heard Crown Prince Michael was visiting, but upon inquiring in Sveti Stefan were told that as of yet nobody had seen him. Everyone was abuzz with news of the Madonna concert in neighbouring Romania and asked me if I was going to see her perform in Belgrade (would have loved too – but heading back to TO soon).
It’s getting late, and I am eager to check out the billionaire makeover that Barrick’s Gold Corp. founder - and fellow Torontonian - Peter Munk has invested in the neighbouring harbour town of Tivat. Having been born on this coast, it is amazing for me to witness the level of investment that is pumping into Croatia and Montenegro and am always pleased when Torontonians are at the forefront of the action!
Adieu Toronto, and see you soon!
