Vilusi border – Montenegrin border crossing to Bosnia (18 Oct 2012)

We were up just after 7am and the temperature outside was very low (4oC). There were frost on the grass and mist in the air. We packed and headed out just after 8am.

Breakfast at Vilusi

We came across this café on the way to the border and decided to stop for breakfast. Dad had soup and omelets. Mum and I had coffee and sandwiches.

Breakfast was alright, nothing too fantastic. The lady (we think is the owner), however, was very friendly and showed us around her café. We did not speak each other’s language, so it was mostly pointing and waving and lots of smiles!

After breakfast, we continued our drive to the border. Not too far away now.

The Montenegrin border post in the distance. We arrived at the border post at 9.50am and it only took 10 minutes to get our passport checked and stamped. We did not have to pay anything on exit (though we did read on the internet that there was a 1 Euro exit tax). See my next post for our border crossing experience on the Bosnian side.
