A walk around Trebinje (Bosnia and Herzegovina): a photo blog

Trebinje is a small town in the south of Bosnia and Herzegovina, near the Croatian border. I came here from Dubrovnik in Croatia by car and it took me about 2 hours to reach (without border crossing traffic it can take as little as 30 minutes). But the landscape and vibration difference between the two was immense; of all the places I visited in Bosnia and Herzegovina, I think this was one of my favourite.

During my two days here I stayed in Apartment Katarina which is owned by a very homely Bosnian couple and they took care of me like their child. (More on my entire trip when I upload my YouTube videos). Here I’m going to take you through a little walk around Trebinje through my photographs. Have a good trip.

6:30 am

Trebinje has this really crisp, clean vibration which made me feel super enthusiastic about waking up early even though I’d had about 3 hours of sleep and a bottle of wine to myself. After getting ready, I walked out towards the main square in Trebinje. Here they have a huge local market with stalls that sell everything from local cheese to homemade cherry liquor. All the produce here is of amazingly good quality.

And after being in Croatia, which is quite touristy in many ways (though incredibly beautiful), this was a welcome change. The vendors at the stalls couldn’t really speak English and the variety of produce there was mind-blowing; this region is particularly known for the nutritional value of it’s food. Compared to Croatia it was super cheap, and I purchased about 5 huge packets of different herbs for tea for less than 5 Euros. I had the best time with myself just walking around this market taking photographs, talking to the vendors, and sampling food.
