When you travel a lot you can never expect much from the places you visit. You assume you’ve seen so much and that nothing can amaze you anymore.

But then you go to a country where you expected absolutely nothing and you get blown away. Bosnia had been on my list to visit for the past two years but I never got around to checking it out, although when it was time to set off for Bosnia, I was glad that it was finally happening.

I entered Bosnia from the South, I had flew into to Dubrovnik and to be honest I had not expected the scenery to be as nice as it was. I had booked a motel in Čapljina, I know it is a city you have probably never heard of, and to be fair neither had I but I stumbled across the city on Google and now I was ready to check it out.

Čapljina is located almost on the border, only 20kilometres from the Adriatic Sea. From the locals I found out that little is known about the city aside from that it was founded in 5BC by the Romans. Wow, Bosnia has a lot of history hidden within its borders.

I spent a day and a half in Čapljina, not enough time but it was time spent well. Čapljina was a city that had a lot of soul but yet it was so calm and relaxed, it left me yearning for more and I will definitely come back!
