I spent 10 hours on an old slow train from Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, to Sarajevo, the divided capital of Bosnia & Herzegovina. The train left at 8 am and I spent the entire day cooped up on stained seats in a musty old train compartment with little ventilation. Needless to say, when I… continue reading »
Welcome to my travel blog. Here you will find stories and photos from my voyage around the world.
