The next shock was the town. We had moving through progressively more primitive areas, tourist locations, but geared towards locals. Here we were suddenly surrounded by fancy resorts and hotels serving western European tourists at western European prices. Everything was so flashy and nice compared to where we'd been. Even the currency in Montenegro is the Euro, at almost 2 to 1 against the dollar. We got some expensive bus tickets and got out of there on the next bus.
The tip here is to take the bus to Croatia that "goes on the ferries" we were told. It was true, it was hours faster than the one they automatically sell you for the same price that skirts bays and fjords miles inland and has a lot more stops.
Off we headed for Croatia, with a stop in Herceg Novi (Montenegro) to change busses..
