    Ooh, looks tempting! The Balkans are a great region of Europe; a place with a fascinating history (in recent years in particular), and so much natutal beauty. Thanks very much for the tip-off; will look in to it 🙂

    This looks like an extraordinary opportunity for an aspiring writer. I especially like the fact that it is Montenegro as the world needs to know more about the area. I know just the person who would be interested.
