Sarajevo
We took a 7 hour bus ride from Split to Sarajevo.  It was a pretty uneventful journey though.  Once we got to Sarajevo we had to try and get some cash so we could get the tram to the hostel, but we couldn't find a cash machine for lover nor money!  One guy would tell us it was in the bus station, the next would say its in the post office.  Eventually after 2 hours of looking, 2 phone calls to the hostel and asking various people, we eventually found out that there was no ATM machine at the station, it was taken away a few weeks ago! 

At the point we thought right f**k it lets walk.  We had no GPS maps so we had to rely on walking towards a dot, we did this for about 2km then we found a cash machine and as soon as we did we jumped into a taxi who took us to the hostel.

  It when we got to the Hostel, we grabbed some food and beer from a local shop just before it closed and went out onto the balcony to relax for a bit then we were going to hit the sack.  A few minutes of silence passed on the balcony then a massive bomb went off! WTF! I near shat myself, then there was call to prayer going off everywhere. We figured out later that it was actually Ramadan and the bomb/firework means you can eat/drink etc.

The next day we booked ourself in on the Harris walking tour, it was great.  The guy that owns the hostel (Haris) has a van and he takes you on a whistlestop tour of Sarajevo.  We saw a lot of interesting things and realised there was a lot more to Sarajevo than the Serbian war.  Later that night we went out with a couple of English girls from the hostel, we went to the City Pub and then to The Club which was pretty cool, we stayed out until 4AM and got a taxi back to the Hostel.

The next day we just relaxed in the hostel, we went out for lunch then cooked our dinner in the hostel.  The next morning we had to get the bus at 7:15AM to dubrovnik, we booked a taxi at night to collect us at 6AM, it didnt turn up so we phoned him back in the morning and he eventually came at 6:30AM. He then asked us for four times the fare on the meter...  Anyway, got on the bus and headed off to Dubrovnik, I tried to get some sleep but someone behind me kept kicking my seat >:(
