Rome to Istanbul
In 2010 I took a two week trip to Croatia. With me I brought Rebecca West's Black Lamb and Grey Falcon, about her own travels through the former Yugoslavia between the wars. When I reached Dubrovnik, I had only enough time for a day trip to Montenegro or to Bosnia Hercegovina. I chose the former, but longed to visit Mostar, to see the bridge, and then Serbia and beyond. I vowed to return.
This year I did.
