Montenegro was our favorite country on our trip to Eastern Europe in 2013. It is a small country, but manages to have a great coastline on the Adriatic Sea, a remote national park filled with mountains and lakes, and charming old Roman cities.The Bay of Kotor is one of the greatest areas in all of the Western Balkans, in my opinion.

While in the country, we went river rafting in Tara Canyon, the second deepest canyon in the world. The deepest is Colorado River's Grand Canyon in America. There were some rapids onthe river, but it was the view of the mountains around us that made us most happy. We ended the trip across the border in Bosnia. It was a great memory.
