I figured I have been here long enough now and snapped enough random shots that it could justify a thread. Place is quite interesting, I don’t have a lot to compare it to but the overall diversity of people from all over Europe is unlike any place I have been before. That being said, here’s a bunch of random stuff I have seen with a little bit of commentary.


Connected through BEG and took a prop plane to TGD.

River running through Podgorica. Nice capital city, of the 600K people in the country about 30% of the population lives here. The rest are outside and come here for doing business.

Like pretty much everywhere I have seen in Europe, Chrysler product has a small foothold. You don’t see a lot of this kind of thing but far more than any other American brands.

Gambling and casinos are a big thing here. It’s not exclusive to Montenegro as it’s similar in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia but very prevalent. Must be a tax thing.

Russian influence here is pretty big. Price of fuel is about $8/ gallon for premium.

I spent the first couple weeks at the Hilton. Very frequently I’d see government officials and military there along with the media. This was them getting set up for a visit by the president.

Wine is good and cheap. The guy at the hotel restaurant was always trying to send me back to the room with a fresh bottle. Price in the local grocery store was about $4 a bottle and I’d put it on par with a $12 bottle of wine you’d get in the US.

Guys inside, probably no children will go over and fall in.

A lot of biodiversity here.

Got sick of the Hilton pretty quickly and ended up being here for a while. Bailed from Podgorica and got an Airbnb in Tivat. It’s a small farmhouse with goats and chickens. Fresh eggs and milk whenever. Very quiet place with decent wifi.

Posted this here somewhere else. It’s the Black Pearl. Russian oligarch ship, simply amazing. What is funny is that there are not a lot of details on it like photos of the inside but I know someone here who has been on it and knows the crew - long story short; the crews of these kind of ships get more enjoyment from them than the owners.

The Regal Princess. It played a funny song on its horns when it went back by in the afternoon.

This is the Emerald Azzurra. Launched in 2022 it’s like a cross between a yacht and a cruise ship. Only carries a bit over 100 passengers. Saw it go by yesterday morning.

Happened to go to Kotor and saw it up close.

Went fishing with a couple locals last weekend. Didn’t catch anything from shore so I may charter a boat and go out into open water. Depends on cost though. Don’t want to spend $500 just for a few hours and a sunburn.

Private jet coming in to TIV. Must be wild diving in out of the mountains and also climbing out at takeoff.

In addition to the crazy amount of various European license plates around, occasionally I will see some US plates. Typically they have the registration stickers torn off but I have seen a few that are current. Have not met anyone with one of these cars yet but if I have the chance I will try to strike up a conversation.

This moth was huge, probably 4” across.

There is a wetland preserve in Tivat. Apparently an important stopping point for a lot of migratory birds on the route to Africa and elsewhere.

Saturday was Montenegro independence day - lots of flags hung up around the city and Porto Montenegro was decorated up a bit. MNE didn’t gain their independence until 2006.
