I am...

...thoughtful.
...passionate.
...good at making people laugh. I think this is a good thing.
...shy.
...hopelessly addicted to sugar.
...difficult sometimes.
...in dire need of  a haircut.

I am trying to be...

...a little kinder.
...more positive.
...the best I can be.
...calmer.
...better at keeping in touch.
...less reliant on others.
...better at remembering where I put my damn glasses.

I am not...

...infallible.
...wise.
...an artist.
...going to let you in that easily.
...a realist.
...very good at saying no.
...going to stop eating sweets any time soon. Sorry, dentist.

Since I pinched this idea from Michelle (and found Kerri's blog along the way), I'm going to continue the theme and ask for one of each from you too, please!

Exploring Kotor

Sunday, 13 July 2014

Perast, Montenegro Kotor, Montenegro Kotor, Montenegro Kotor, Montenegro P6200997 Kotor, Montenegro Kotor, Montenegro Church of Our Lady on the Rocks, Montenegro PerastAfter a fleeting jaunt to Podgorica last month, I was excited to travel down the Montenegrin coast to the lakeside town of Kotor. Fuelled by chocolate pastries from a very fancy hotel breakfast, we were initially going to take the bus, but as it was such a warm and sunny day we decided to be frivolous and call a taxi instead. It turned out to be a fantastic decision as driving through the mountains and looking down at all the beautiful coastal towns with the windows rolled down was just perfect. At that moment I think I fell in love with Kotor before I'd even clapped eyes on it. Arriving at our apartment to see the view of the lake and mountains awaiting us at the balcony, it didn't disappoint! We spent the first afternoon watching a thunderstorm raging at the top of a distant mountain, admiring the rolling clouds clinging to the sides of the hills and feeling like the luckiest people in the world. Tom and I had never been on a relaxing holiday together before, so a couple of days of doing nothing but sitting in the sun, drinking wine and the occasional early morning mountain climb was just what needed. I've never been so sad to leave a place behind.
